  • I could take my time and I can speed you up
    I could pull you in, you can't get enough
    Let's go slip-sliding in my veins

    'Cause this life is only chains
    It's nothing like the colors in my dreams
    I just wanted to be Steve McQueen
    And my horses of English racing green
    You and me in British racing green

    And it could hold us down
    They can break your pride
    And if it gets too rough, well you just climb inside
    Let's go slip-sliding in my veins

    'Cause this life is only chains
    It's nothing like the colors in my dreams
    I just want to be Steve McQueen
    With my horses of English racing green
    You and me in British racing green

    And don't you know that you and I, we're never going home
    And since we don't wanna be alone
    Here we go, sliding in my veins

    'Cause this life is only chains
    It's nothing like the colors in my dreams
    And I just wanted to be Steve McQueen
    With my horses of English racing green
    You and me in British racing green

    'Cause this life is always the same
    It's nothing like the colors in our dreams
    We just wanted to be Steve McQueen
    With our horses of English racing green
    You and me in British racing green
    You and me, Steve McQueen Writer/s: BRIAN FALLON, DANIEL WILSON DODD
