"My Car" as written by and Jesse M. Valenzuela....
Streetlights on, the night air's cool
I'm driving right past my old school
I'm looking for my pack of cigarettes
I'm thinking back on things I've done
I can't forget the stupid ones
It seems I do my best by accident
What's that sound, what's that song
What's this street I'm driving on
In my car
In my car
I miss her feel, her touch, her taste
I feel the distance everyplace
This distance can't be taken casually
I take my time, just drive around
Feeling lost in my hometown
Every turn I take is comforting
What's that sound, what's that song
What's this street I'm driving on
In my car
In my car
I'll take a break from all their big plans
My first mistake was listening to them
I made a mess it's all been proven
Over and over again
Over and over again
Streetlights on, the night air's cool
I'm driving right past my old school
Looking for some face I can't forget
I take my time, just drive around
Feeling lost in my hometown
Every turn I take's an accident
What's that sound, what's that song.

    General CommentIt's about coming back to a place he grew up in, but now with the added freedom of being an adult with a car. He's more free to explore all of these areas that he was probably limited to go to, both being a child and not having the ability to go everywhere he wanted to.
    He's probably also looking for high school crush of his.

    "Looking for some face I can't forget."

    Even though he's been gone for a while, he hasn't forgotten her.
