  • Uh-huh
    Ooh, yeah
    Mmm, ah
    (It's the Rascals)

    I looked in my rearview mirror and
    It seemed to make a lot more sense
    Than what I see ahead of us, ahead of us, yeah
    Uh, I'm ready to make that turn
    Before we both crash and burn
    'Cause that could be the death of us, the death of us

    Baby, you know how to drive in rain
    And you decided not to make a change
    Stuck in the same old lane
    Going the wrong way home

    I feel like my heart is stuck in bumper to bumper traffic
    I'm under pressure 'cause I can't have you the way that I want
    Let's just go back to the way it was
    When we were on Honeymoon Avenue
    Honeymoon Avenue, baby
    Coastin' like crazy
    Can we get back to the way it was?

    Hey, What happened to the butterflies?
    Guess they encountered that stop sign
    And my heart is at a yellow light, a yellow light
    Hey, right when I think that we've found it (found it)
    Well, that's when we start turnin' around (tunrin' around)
    You're saying, "Baby, don't worry"
    But we're still going the wrong way

    Baby, you know how to drive in rain
    And you decided not to make a change
    Stuck in the same old lane
    Going the wrong way home

    I feel like my heart is stuck in bumper to bumper traffic
    I'm under pressure 'cause I can't have you the way that I want
    Let's just go back to the way it was
    When we were on Honeymoon Avenue
    Honeymoon Avenue, baby
    Coastin' like crazy
    Can we get back to the way it was?

    They say only fools fall in love
    Well, they must've been talking about us
    And sometimes I feel like we've been here before
    I could be wrong, but I know I'm right
    We're gon' be lost if we continue to fight
    Honey, I know, yeah
    We can find our way home

    I feel like my heart is stuck in bumper to bumper traffic
    I'm under pressure 'cause I can't have you the way that I want
    Let's just go back to the way it was
    When we were on Honeymoon Avenue
    Honeymoon Avenue, my baby
    Coastin' like crazy
    Can we get back to the way it was?
    When we were on Honeymoon Avenue
    Honeymoon Avenue, baby
    Coastin' like crazy
    Can we get back to the way it was?

    Baby, you know how to drive in rain
    And you decided not to make a change
    Stuck in the same old lane
    Going the wrong way home
    I feel like my heart is stuck in
    Traffic, I'm under
    Pressure, pressure
    Let's just go back to the way it was
    When we were on
    Honeymoon Avenue, Honeymoon Avenue
    Honeymoon Avenue, Honeymoon Avenue
    Avenue
    Let's just go back, b-b-b-back, back, back Writer/s: Antonio Lamar Dixon, Dennis L. Jenkins, Kenny Babyface Edmonds, Khristopher Van Riddick Tynes, Leon G. Thomas III, Maurice David Wade, Roahn Kirk Hylton, Thomas Lee Brown, Travis J. Sayles, Victoria Monet Mccants
