The Getaway Lyrics

by Hilary Duff

Here I am again
Talking to myself
Sitting at a red light
Both hands on the wheel
How am I supposed to feel?
So much running through my mind

First you want to be free
Now you say you need me
Giving mixed signals and signs
It's so hard to let you in
Thinking you might slam
The brakes again

Put the petal down
Heading out of town
Gotta make a getaway
The traffic in my brain's
Driving me insane
This is more than I can take

You tell me that you love me first
Then throw your heart into reverse
I gotta getaway

I can't keep coming back to you
Everytime you're in the mood
To whisper something sweet in my ear
It's so hard to move on
'Cause everytime I think you're gone
You show up in my rearview mirror

Is this just a detour
'Cause I gotta be sure
That you really mean what you say
It's so hard to let you in
Thinking you might slam
The brakes again

Put the petal down
Heading out of town
Gotta make a getaway
The traffic in my brain's
Driving me insane
This is more than I can take

You tell me that you love me first
Then throw your heart into reverse
I gotta getaway

To a place where I
Can be redefined
Where you're out of sight
And you're out of mind
But the truth is
I can't even say goodbye

Here I am again
Talking to myself
Sitting at a red light
Both hands on the wheel
How am I supposed to feel?
So much running through my mind

Put the pedal down
Heading out of town
Gotta make a getaway
(A getaway)
The traffic in my brain's
Driving me insane
This is more than I can take
(I can take)

You tell me that you love me first
Then throw your heart into reverse
I gotta getaway
