My Racing Thoughts

Album: People and Things (2011)
  • She's a black cat hanging 'round my doorstep
    I'll need all day tomorrow to recover from today
    I was boxing with my shadow at a stoplight
    When the clocks changed, yeah
    It was midnight I was mixed up
    When she called to drag the lake

    I think I'm running short on inspiration
    She's running long on borrowed time
    We break with speed
    That girl can read my racing thoughts
    She asks the questions,
    I take the floor, she takes her shots
    Taught her a lesson about a forced confession
    We break with speed
    That girl can read my racing thoughts

    My racing thoughts
    My racing thoughts

    So I'll try to keep her steady now
    But steady's not her strong suit
    I was raised going to church
    But couldn't practice what they preached
    And so I'm hiring a DJ for the
    Eve of our destruction, yeah
    It was midnight I was mixed up when
    She found me on the beach

    I think I'm running low on inspiration
    She's running long on borrowed time
    We break with speed
    That girl can read my racing thoughts
    She asks the questions
    I take the floor, she takes her shots
    Taught her a lesson about a forced confession
    We break with speed
    That girl can read my racing thoughts

    My racing thoughts
    My racing thoughts

    I think I'm running short on inspiration,
    She's running long on borrowed time
    We break with speed,
    That girl can read my racing thoughts
    She asks the questions
    I take the floor, she takes her shots
    Taught her a lesson about a forced confession
    We break with speed
    That girl can read my racing thoughts

    My racing thoughts
    My racing thoughts
    My racing thoughts
    My racing thoughts
    My racing thoughts

    (She can read my, she can read my,
    She can read my racing thoughts)

    Whoa, oh
    (She can read my, she can read my,
    She can read my racing thoughts)

    Whoa, oh
    (She can read my, she can read my,
    She can read my racing thoughts) Writer/s: ANDREW ROSS MCMAHON
