Speed Of Life Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

We drove all night to get to Corpus Christi
My parents slept right through, they never missed me
We were far from sleepin', when the truth began to creep in
That we weren't goin' home anytime soon

The mornin' light sure took us by surprise
We grabbed our clothes, watched a beautiful sunrise
We were one together and we must have talked forever
And it was then and there I realized that

And I don't want to wait even one more night
It's hard to slow it down when it feels so right
Knees buckled, white knuckled, we're holdin' on tight
We're travelin' at twice the speed of life
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

We worked our way through college waitin' tables
Bought a little white house with a picket fence and cable
I asked if he was ready to become a Mom and Daddy
And then I found my answer in his eyes and he said

I don't want to wait even one more night
It's hard to slow it down when it feels so right
Knees buckled, white knuckled, we're holdin' on tight
We're travelin' at twice the speed of life

Now, our oldest girl is almost grown
She's got a boyfriend of her own
I heard her sneakin' out with him last night

And if she's anything like me
She's desperate to be wild and free
We know now it's just a matter of time 'til she says

I don't want to wait even one more night
It's hard to slow it down when it feels so right
Knees buckled, white knuckled, we're holdin' on tight
We're travelin' at twice the speed of life

I don't want to wait even one more night
It's hard to slow it down when it feels so right
Knees buckled, white knuckled, we're holdin' on tight
We're travelin' at twice the speed of life

Speed of life
