Fifty miles an hour,
One car goes by.
Vroom.
An now it's been two.
I remain here,
Right beside you.

Fifty miles an hour;
Vroom;
The world slips by.
Ta, ta, ta;
The music plays on.
Thump-a, thump-a;
My heart beats calm.

Sixty-five miles an hour,
A third car goes by.
Vroom.
And now it's been four.
I remain here,
Excited evermore.

Sixty-five miles an hour;
Vroom.
The world runs by.
Da, da, da;
The music grows fainter.
Thump-it-a, thump-it-a;
My heart skips quicker.

Eighty miles an hour,
A fifth car goes by.
Vroom.
And now it's been six.
Remaining here,
It's us I try to fix.

Eighty miles an hour;
Vroom;
The world speeds by.
La, la, la;
The music does not last.
Thump-it-ee-a, thump-it-ee-a;
My heart speedsfast.

Beyond, life soars.
By me he races;
Discovering the new
At speedy paces,
Experiencing it all
With bold embraces.

Within, love beats.
By me he races;
Through the friends
And the faces,
Past the memories
And the places.

Eighty miles an hour,
I remain here,
Right beside you.
The world speeds past
And my heart beats true.
A seventh car goes by,
And looking in the rear view,
Vroom.
My heart finally passes you.
