I wasn't looking to shift my direction
My eyes straight ahead, hands ten and two
The gravity of our first connection
Veering off the road and into you

And all the people drive by slowly gawking at the scene
Of the smoldering inevitable spark and gasoline

All the way, I met you head on full speed
At the heart the blue flame burns
All the way, I took the crash course impact
But have I learned all that I'm supposed to learn?

No amount of playing safe could save me from this day
The heed seeking path of my trajectory
Didn't we coolly divest of predestination
Slamming into futures we can't see?

And I know what can happen when there's more than meets the eye
But there's no way to avoid it, just get in the car and drive

All the way, I met you head on full speed
At the heart the blue flame burns
All the way, I took the crash course impact
But have I learned all that I'm supposed to learn?

It makes me laugh, we're talking over tea
(I know what I should do)
When I can still smell the smoke on our sleeve
(I don't wanna do it)

Steaming like gun smoke, the wreckage of our past
(I would make it way out)
And the scene of a crime I still can't leave
(But I can't get to it)

Oh, you and me, we should let well enough be
But each revisitation points to clues
There's the oil slick of uncertainty
And warning signs back there we didn't use

At least we laugh about it now how we escaped alive
It's remarkable the mess we make and what we can survive

All the way, I met you head on full speed
At the heart the blue flame burns
All the way, I took the crash course impact
But have I learned all that I'm supposed to learn?
