"The Chase" as written by and Dexter Gordon....
"Drive" you said
"Just blow me away"
We don't wait to be saved
We'll dream wide awake
Words that you said
Were holes through my brain
And I'll never be the same again

You can pray all you want
We're not coming back oh
All these thoughts, they just fade away

The chase is on
If you run
I will follow you
And I belong in your arms
Dying next to you
The chase is on

"Drive" you said
With tears down your face
I've got to restart
Is that so hard?
Secrets that day
I'll take to the grave
Yeah, no one can catch us now

You can pray all you want
We're not coming back oh
We're the feelings above the flame

The chase is on
If you run
I will follow you
And I belong in your arms
Dying next to you
The chase is on

The chase is on
If you run
I will follow you
And I belong in your arms
Dying next to you
The chase is on
If you run
I will follow you
The chase is on
I belong in your arms

The. Chase. Is. On.

    General CommentThose aren't exactly the lyrics....

    WEAR holes through my brain


    I've got to SEE THE STARS


    We're the PHOENIX above the flame...

    Other than that, it's a pretty straight forward song. I wish it'd had been on the album just so more people could hear it, but then, it wouldn't have really fit.

    General CommentNo those are the correct lyrics. I have the song on my Myspace so I hear it everyday mulitple times...

    I agree with the 'Wear' though, but I can see why they put that its a common mistake.

    I can't understand if he's saying 'Feelings' or 'Phoenix' but I'm gonna stick with feelings...

    And I don't see where 'I've got to see the stars' comes in...

    He says: 'I've got to restart'

    General CommentI have the song...I got "I've got to see the stars" because there's another syllable there.

    I've seen it written both ways, though, so either one of us could be right.

    General CommentYep, it's definitely "I've got to see the stars". It can't not be.

    General CommentDoes it really matter how the lyrics go? Its based on interpertation.

    Anyway, the meaning of the song. I think its about a girl who did something very horrible where she and her bf used to leave. So now, she's planning on leaving and going to a new place to start her life over again. Her bf refuses to leave her behind, so he goes with her. And basically he's saying, no matter where you go or run to, I will be right behind you.
