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.

I ran away from you, now look how far I’ve got.
I shared some secrets that I hope you’d keep,

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.

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

i believe i have had the same problem as you did, but, i wanna tell you something that'll help you.

it's better to detach your emotions and feel nothing towards girls, or any preference for that matter.
it'll totally help you. trust me, when i was repeatedly rejected, i couldn't bear it. it kills your soul, your mind, your way of even thinking. it made me feel like i meant nothing to anybody for that matter because of who i am.
but, when i finally realized that girls didn't like me because i wasn't up to par with their standards, i just grew out of the idea to grab their attention forcefully, but baiting them based on my looks, and the way i say things. it's more of the idea that there's no point in trying to get with people that'll only see you as a friend, if the true reason why they "see you as a friend" is a code word for "you're too ugly/stupid/awkward for my type", or something like that. trust me, girls are too fucking complex to even understand, and it's better not giving a fuck about them.

now, about your suicide part:

well, suicide is the idea of life being worthless for a certain individual, based on the current situation, aftermath, or another explained reason, and then committing it. ofc, i lost someone to suicide like 4 days ago, so i know how it feels to lose someone to it. trust me, i think suicide is unfortunately how people are towards one another, as it's the result and the aftermath of continuous bullying and the stripping of a person's social life. it's not really the answer, because suicide is the permanent solution to a temporary problem, and there isn't much to see in life after realizing that it's pointless to live. but you, my guy, are the primary example of what surviving a suicide attempt is. it's unfortunate that you attempted it, because you could have a lot of potential. i felt like life was pointless living until i stopped talking to the people that never cared, and simply moved on in my life. it hurts, but you'll definitely get a hold of it after like 2 months or a year or two.

i think you have a lot of potential. and tempting yourself to die isn't a good idea, because the truth is, you have a lot to live for. hell, you haven't even seen the end of the world yet. never give up, no matter how much it hurts to live, as i believe in your ability to do so.
