The Night I Drove Alone
Citizen Lyrics


I ran away from you
Now look how far I've got
I shared some secrets that I hope you'd keep
They're words that don't come out

And I should've crashed the car
The night I drove alone
Escape from August cold, woah

And you talk like someone else

I ran away from you
And now something's killing me
You hang me up
As a souvenir of what I couldn't be

And I should've crashed the car
When I was all alone
Escape from all I know, woah oh, woah oh

And you talk like someone else

I ran away from you, now look how far I’ve got.
I shared some secrets that I hope you’d keep,
They’re words that don’t come out.
And I should’ve crashed the car the night I drove alone.
Escape from August cold.

And you talk like someone else.

I ran away from you, and now something's killing me.
You hang me up as a souvenir of what I couldn’t be.
And I should’ve crashed the car when I was all alone.
Escape from all I know.

And you talk like someone else.

a few years ago i fell in love for the first time.
i couldn't realise what happened at the time.
i knew i liked her, but i couldn't admit it.
so i never asked her out.
but we would hangout constantly.
sometimes we didn't sleep, we'd go to school and be up for 3 days almost.
every night, every morning.
i knew we were more than friends at the time, and i could never take the step further.
not that i was scared, i just felt so alone, like i still do.
i didn't want to lose her because i had nobody else.
i got a text from her one night, said she was in trouble and some guy was following her.
i showed up and he started attacking her.
i ran up to him and pushed him away. he came for me again and i snapped. saying words and speaking in a protective way,
she didn't like it, as most girls don't.
she felt scared and intimidated that maybe id hurt her because i was able to hurt him.
i got into my car and started driving off since she walked off and didn't seem like she was coming back.
i left her a text saying goodnight and the next hours were insane.
i kept getting calls and texts from random numbers and the messages and words when i picked up the one wouldnt make any sense.
they did after anyways.
it was storming the later and i thought id go see if she was okay.
i showed up at her house and she texted me to leave and she never wanted to see me again.
i have no idea where i went wrong.
i said nothing bad when fending off the attacker.
so i left in heaps of sadness, cluelessness, and anxiety.
i couldn't see a thing because my windshield wipers were dull and i was apparently on a really busy road.
going about 95 in a 60 trying to find a place to stop and think.
two semis came from either side of me and seemed as tho i was going to be smashed between them.
i floored it with hope in my eyes and braced for impact.
i got really nauseous and my sugar dropped. and couldn't see anything. i thought i went blind.
my ears rang so loudly i couldn't bare the situation. i thought i was smashed and was a goner.
but instead a woman came to my window and said "What are you doing in the road?"
I looked around confused.
Then she said "If it's the girl you so desperately seek and desire the acceptance of, you're not wasting your time on thee idea, you're wasting time on the girl."
this song has literally helped me through that so much.
I don't know what's next for my travels, but hopefully i don't waste my time

This hits hard because less than a year ago I decided on the tree I would crash into to end my life, now, I'm better than ever and this song makes me feel so happy to still be alive.

I came back to say my friend and I used to drive late nights and listen to music in silence just.... feeling. I mean, a few sentences here and there. We'd speed on old dirt roads. One day he told me he wanted to crash and like you had a tree. I told him when he goes, I go. Well, one day we went speeding down that road and he asks if I'm ready. I wasn't. We're both still here. He's like my brother. You can get as detailed as a tree in your tragedy but sometimes then path changes for the better. I'm glad you're another example of that. 🙏🖤
