She's got these eyes, these fiery eyes
She's got these eyes and when she sees me, they just light
Light up all the sky
She don't even try

We were moving past the speed limit
And probably doing something that's not right

She gets these thoughts, these awful thoughts
The kind they drop upon your doorstep in a big, black, awful box
And no one knocks
They just let you find these thoughts

Well, when you're traveling at the speed of light,
You're bound to undergo some sense of loss

Who's got no pain? Who has no pain?
My point is everyone, but everyone, but everyone gets pain
But then it rains
And if you're lucky, someone stays

Though if you're spinning that wheel ever on,
You may be spinning ever on in vain

We got away (we got away), we've got a way (we've got a way)
Of taking all the roads but golden and still somehow breaking day
We're staying sane
And one more turn should be okay

See, if you're striving to illuminate the night,
You might as well use every lane

She's got these eyes (she's got these eyes), these fiery eyes (these fiery eyes)
She's got these eyes and when she sees me, they just cry
For all that's lost (all that's lost)
And then they cry for all that's right

And if the thing that drives you onward is your heart,
you must not let that engine die
No, if the thing that drives you onward is your heart,
you must not let that engine die
Yes, if the thing that drives you onward is your heart,
you must not let that engine die
Oh, if the thing that drives you onward is your heart,
you must not let that engine die
