Album: My Town (2002)
Charted: 47
  • I'm tired of spinning my wheels
    I need to find a place where my heart can go to heal
    I need to get there pretty quick
    Hey mister, what you got out on that lot you can sell me in a pinch
    Maybe one of them souped up muscle cars
    The kind that makes you think you're stronger than you are
    Color don't matter, no I don't need leather seats
    All that really concerns me is:

    Speed, an' how fast will it go
    Can it get me over her quickly
    Zero to sixty, can it outrun her memory
    Yeah, what I really need
    Is an open road
    An' a whole lot of speed

    I'd like to trade in this old truck
    'Cause it makes me think of her and that just slows me up
    See, it's the first place we made love, where we used to sit and talk
    On the tailgate all night long, but now she's gone
    An' I need to move on
    So give me:


    Throw me them keys so I can put some miles between us
    Tear off that rear view mirror, there's nothing left to see here, yeah
    Let me lean on that gas, oh she catches up fast
    So give me:


    That's what I need
    I'm tired of spinning my wheels
