Alexander 23 – How To Drive Lyrics

How To Drive Lyrics – Alexander 23

My grandparents, they’re getting older
Some of my friends, they’re getting sober
Oh, it’s true that life goes on
But it sure leaves some things behind
And I worked real hard, I made some money
And it’s not a joke, but it’s still funny
How with every ounce of freedom comes a pound of traumatized

It feels like all my friends, they feel the same way
The candles take more breath on every birthday
The train, it leaves the station without a final destination
And I know I should shut up, enjoy the ride
But nobody ever taught me how to drive

And I’ve been heartbroken so badly
But now I’m scared of being happy
So when the butterflies show up
I make excuses up and hide
Like, work is busy, I’m feeling weird
My dog died this time last year

It feels like all my friends, they feel the same
The candles take more breath on every birthday
The train, it leaves the station without a final destination
And I know I should shut up, enjoy the ride
But nobody ever taught me how to drive

I’m scared to death of my friends dying
And I’m insecure about actually trying
I’ve got so many things I wanna do that I get paralyzed and
End up wasting precious time
On things that make me wanna die
I’m tired of seeing the world in black and blue

My grandparents, they’re getting older
Wish they could tell me when it’s all over
Did you and your friends feel the same way?
Did the candles take more breath on every birthday?
But the train, it left the station, was there a final destination?
Did you learn to just shut up and enjoy the ride?
Did you learn to keep it all between the lines?
Did anybody ever teach you how to drive?
