Songs: When I Hit The Brakes

 

I should have known by the look on your face when you climbed in the car where you wanted to go.
Rumors I'd heard
no longer ignored
You opened your mouth but before you could speak
I said no, I really don't think I want to know
I really don't think I want to go that far now
Let's just stay right where we are now
leave well enough alone

I squint at the road but I can still see
windshield reflections; you're staring at me.
You've something to say that I don't want to hear
and it gets hard to drive when I'm covering my ears.
So I say no, I really don't think I want to know
I really don't think I want to go that far down
I'd rather stay uninvolved now

These fevered confessions frighten me and though you're my friend
I swear if you don't stop soon it's a long walk home again.

You just won't quit
what made you believe I wanted to hear the secrets you keep?
Now I see what it takes
your head hits the windshield when I hit the brakes
cause I said no, I really don't think I want to know
I really don't think I want to go that far now
Let's just stay right where we are now
I said no, I really don't think I want to know
I really don't think I want to go that far down
You've gotten me involved now
Now look what you've done
