​Stolen Car

This song is by Rheostatics and appears on the album Double Live (1997) and on the album The Nightlines Sessions (1998).

Dave Bidini

I dreamed I drove a stolen car.
Through the field across the yard.
Taking out the fences that I'd built between all my friends.
Through the snow, we shagged again.
I said goodbye, waved them on their own.
I drove all night. I drove alone.

Goodbye suburban mother bone.
For every kid in every home.
Beauty becomes you, be who you are.
If I should rob a corner store.
Or kill a cop who prayed for mercy.
Forgive me, I don't know what made me this way,
But I'll be alright if you'll be okay.

'Cause sometime it's precious to go. (She'll tell you.)
No matter how smart you are, how could you know? (She'll tell you.)
It's harder than living, it's harder to drive away.

I don't need anger to make me tough.
Acid scars or marijuana.
A dream, a kiss, one final wish.
A girl who's bent to pay my rent;
All these things are disappearing.
The world is swimming, the stars are bright.
I wish I was alone with you tonight.

It's lethal, it's painless, and it's slow. (She'll tell you.)
No matter how smart you are, how could you know? (She'll tell you.)
It's harder than living, it's harder to drive away.
