​Drive

This song is by John Foxx and appears on the album Crash And Burn (2003).

If you keep your heart in a velvet place
And you never wake up in a state of grace
And you don't look around and you never ask why
I need to watch the weather while I read the sky

When I drive
When I drive
When I drive
When I drive

There's an awful lot of people who you never call
When you live too fast and you walk too tall
And I drive by the factory and the mission bell
Then I look down the tunnel at the face of hell

When I drive
When I drive
When I drive
When I drive
Drive away...

I'm going to drive, drive, drive myself away
I'm going to turn, turn, turn to a state of grace
I'm going to shake, shake, shake all the city gates
Because the sky's on fire and all the bridges break

When I drive
Drive away
When I drive
Drive away

Drive by the factory and the mission bell
And I drive down the tunnel to the face of hell
And it streams, and it gleams, it's a wishing well
There's an awful lot of feelings I can never tell

When I drive
When I drive
When I drive
When I drive

Well I ran to the scene and the seas are flame
And I ran through the city but the city was changed
And I ran to the river but the tides won't wait
But I can pass through the flames to a state of grace

When I drive
When I drive
When I drive
When I drive

I said
Hey, hey you can drive away
I said
Hey, hey I can drive away
I said
Hey, hey I can drive away
I said
Hey, hey I can drive away

Well I hid my heart under a concrete wall
And I stood to lose so I lost it all
I see an awful lot of people who never call
They will watch you run and then they'll watch you crawl

When I drive
When I drive
When I drive
When I drive

I'm going to drive, drive, drive myself away
I'm going to take, take, take all the big mistakes
I'm going to turn them 'round to a state of grace
And when I pass through the flames I won't hide my face

When I drive
When I drive
When I drive
When I drive

I said
Hey, hey drive away
I said
Hey, hey you can drive away
I said
Hey, hey drive away
I said
Hey, hey you can drive away

Drive away
Drive away
Drive away
Drive away
