Met a man last year, broken down by the side of the road,
took him for a midnight ride to show him the world,
Peeled back the dead skin to try to find his core
All the years of pent-up emotion slid through the door.

And can't you learn to let go?

We drove for miles before we reached the stopping point
And at the intersection he lunged right for my heart
A valiant effort for the man who couldn't give--
the one who keeps all his feelings trapped within.

And can't you learn to let go?

He took the wheel and drove right through me,
On to destroy a new city
Tied to the tailpipe I ran into the ground
Boy you better think twice before you drive back around

And can't you learn to let go?

Let's go,
let's go,
let's go,
let's go, oh, woah,
let's go,
let's go,
let's go,
let's go.

    General CommentI know a guy like this---he seems like he can't feel any emotions himself, only hurt others.
