Understanding in a Car Crash
Splintered piece of glass falls in the seat, gets caught
Broken windows, open locks
Reminders of the youth we lost

In trying so hard to look away from you
We followed white lines to the sunset
Crash my car everyday the same way

Time to let this pass
(The time it takes, the time it takes to let go)
Time runs through our veins
(It starts and stops and starts and stops again)
We don't stand a chance in this threadbare time
(The time it takes, the time it takes to let go)
Time to let this pass
(The time it takes, the time it takes to let go)

Staring at the setting sun
No reason to come back again
The twilight world in blue and white
The needle and the damage done

I don't want to feel this way forever
A dead letter marked return to sender

Broken watch you gave me
Turns into compass
It's two hands still point to the same time
12:03, our last goodbye

So push the seats back a little further
I can see the headlights coming

So push the seats back a little further
Roll the windows down and take a breath
I can see the headlights coming
They paint the world in red and broken glass

Time to let this pass
(The time it takes, the time it takes to let go)
Time runs through our veins
(It starts and stops and starts and stops again)
We don't stand a chance in this threadbare time
(The time it takes, the time it takes to let go)
Time to let this pass
(The time it takes, the time it takes to let go)

Staring at the setting sun
No reason to come back again
The twilight world in blue and white
The needle and the damage done

I don't want to feel this way forever
A dead letter marked return to sender

The spinning hubcaps set the tempo
For the music of a broken window
With the cameras on, the cameras click
We open up the lens and can't stop

Staring at the setting sun
No reason to come back again
The twilight world in blue and white
The needle and the damage done

I don't want to feel this way forever
When the lights are on and the cameras click
We open up the lens
(To broken glass) Staring at the setting sun
(And it's over) No reason to come back again
(In a flash) The twilight world in blue and white
(In a car crash) The needle and the damage done

(I'll never understand) I don't want to feel
(Understanding) This way forever
(In a car crash) A dead letter marked
(In a car crash) Return to sender
In a crash (In a crash)
