Wake up to the sunlight With your windows open Don't hold in your anger or leave things unspoken Wear your red dress Use your good dishes Make a big mess and make lots of wishes Have what you want But want what you have And don't spend your life lookin' back
[Chorus] Turn up the music Turn it up loud Take a few chances Let it all out You won't regret it Lookin' back from where you have been Cause it's not who you knew And it's not what you did It's how you live
So go to the ballgames And go to the ballet And go see your folks more than just on the holidays Kiss all your children Dance with your wife Tell your husband you love him every night Don't run from the truth Cause you can't get away Just face it and you'll be okay
Oh wherever you are and wherever you've been Now is the time to begin
So give to the needy And pray for the grieving E'en when you don't think that you can Cause all that you do is bound to come back to you So think of your fellow man Make peace with God and make peace with yourself Cause in the end there's nobody else
Cause it's not who you knew And it's not what you did It's how you live

In Gary Numan's "Cars," the message is that cars lead to a mechanical society devoid of personal interaction. This didn't stop automakers from using it in commercials. Both Nissan and Oldsmobile have used it in ads.
The lyrics to "Heartbreak Hotel" were written by a steel guitar player who was once a dishwasher repairman. He was inspired by a newspaper story about a man who killed himself and left behind a note saying only, "I walk a lonely street."
