Car Crash

Album: Some Mad Hope (2007)
Play Video
  • I'm wide awake and so alive
    Ringing like a bell
    Tell me this is paradise
    And not someplace I fell
    Cause I keep on fallin' down

    I wanna feel the car crash
    I wanna feel the capsize
    I wanna feel the bomb drop, the earth stop
    Till I'm satisfied
    I wanna feel the car crash
    Cause I'm dyin' on the inside
    I wanna let go and know
    That I'll be alright, alright

    Just push me 'til I have to fly
    I've shed my skin, my scars
    Take me deep out past the lights
    Where nothing dims these stars
    Nothing dims these stars

    I wanna feel the car crash
    I wanna feel the capsize
    I wanna feel the bomb drop, the earth stop
    Till I'm satisfied
    I wanna feel the car crash
    Cause I'm dyin' on the inside
    I wanna let go and know
    That I'll be alright, alright

    So right
    It's all wrong

    I'm wide awake and so alive

    I wanna feel the car crash
    I wanna feel the capsize
    I wanna feel the bomb drop, the earth stop
    Till I'm satisfied
    I wanna feel the car crash
    Cause I'm dyin' on the inside
    I wanna let go and know
    That I'll be alright, alright
