it's an anomaly, a media gestalt; I asked, to the zeitgeist, and received. but the jinn...
Would she return to me, someday?
Beautiful skin, and a body that flew through the night.
Curves that'd make anyone jealous, and the lights, her eyes...
My car's on a voyage, now, across the great blue to another station
I gave it all up, the race, the papers.
For a little peace of mind.
I have a wife now, a child, a future.
Can't I have some time to myself, right now?
To remember how it used to be.
Flowers at the finish line; I wish
When it was over, the winner just sped off
But we liked it that way, when the speed was gone
So were we, back to our old lives, a shop hand or mag manager
Street whore, yeah, I remember her
Right alongside me and then never seen again
I wasn't special, I lost as much as I won
If only I could go back and do it all again...
I wouldn't change a thing
We only have one life to live
Do your regrets tie you to what could have been?
Feeling like you can't ever die, you have the power to control destiny
A fleeting pride
Now's the time to turn away from the past and fantasy
She's already sitting in the passenger seat, and soon we'll be in the driveway
What can this thing do? Not a monster, a comfortable sedan sitting silent
Could it roar?
I'm sure, but I'm beyond the violence and war
The feeling is fleeting, a bittersweet ache
I'm smarter now, stronger, I won't take chances
I have to hold on and escape
The drive back home was sedate and normal
It truly is all over
And I'm home
