stay awake / stay alive lyrics – hawthorne heights

“stay awake / stay alive”

i took the wheel with burning eyes
trying to stay awake, just trying to stay alive
i lost control, somewhere in colorado
but i avoided flashing lights

stay awake to stay alive, all we ever do is drive

let’s sing a song about the winter for a change
the sunshine just makes me close my eyes
let’s remember snowy nights, driving down the interstate
hoping that our tires don’t slide, not tonight, oh not tonight

i watch the miles and the signs disappear before my eyes
following the highway lines
through foggy gl*ss with music loud, snow falls from the clouds
f*ck that i’m pulling over now

stay awake to stay alive, all we ever do is drive

let’s sing a song about the winter for a change
the sunshine just makes me close my eyes
let’s remember snowy nights, driving down the interstate
hoping that our tires don’t slide, not tonight, oh not tonight

we drive, we try
to make it through the night alive
we drive, we try
to live under these flashing lights
we drive, we try
to make it through the night alive

let’s sing a song about the winter for a change
the sunshine just makes me close my eyes
let’s remember snowy nights, driving down the interstate
hoping that our tires don’t slide, not tonight, oh not tonight
