Speeding Cars
Imogen Heap Lyrics


Here's the day you hoped would never come
Don't feed me violins
Just run with me through rows of speeding cars

The paper cuts, the cheating lovers
The coffee's never strong enough
I know you think it's more than just bad luck

There, there baby
It's just textbook stuff
It's in the ABC of growing up

Now, now darling
Oh don't lose your head
'Cause none of us were angels
And you know I love you yeah

Sleeping pills know
Sleeping dogs lie never far enough away
Glistening in the cold sweat of guilt

I've watched you slowly winding down for years
You can't keep on like this
Now's a bad a time as any whoa

There, there baby
It's just textbook stuff
It's in the ABC of growing up

Now, now darling
Oh don't kill yourself
'Cause none of us were angels
And you know I love you yeah

It's OK by me
It's OK by me
It's OK by me
It was a long time ago

It's OK by me
It's OK by me
It's OK by me
It was a long time ago

There, there baby
It's just textbook stuff
It's in the ABC of growing up

Now, now darling
Oh don't lose your head
'Cause none of us were angels
And you know I love you yeah

There, there baby
It's just textbook stuff
It's in the ABC of growing up

Now, now darling
Oh don't kill yourself
'Cause none of us were angels
And you know I love you yeah

It seems like ages ago, but when I was going thru one of the worst times in my life and wasn't sure if I could continue on with all the death, money problems, and general chaos in my life, this song somehow seemed to settle my anxiety and made me feel that things weren't going to remain as bad. Things aren't super spectacular as of now, but they're a lot better, and this song still seems to help.

Elana Cooper

I feel that way about many of her songs <3 I am glad things are better for you I hope that trend continued, but 

"There's beauty in the breakdown"

I had a similar experience. This song was there when I was going through some tough time back in 2008 that eventually led to a divorce.

Mattejko

@brendawg 800 yeah I hope that as well Brittany! Good luck!

brendawg 800

I hope things are better now, or at least getting better all the time.

Johnny Milliken

They need to put this on Spotify. My depressed car drives could use the nostalgia…

Ashlee Bell

@HavCola same for me

HavCola

@Sammie C For some rason Speeding Cars is listed, but "not available" for me. Might be a localization thing?

Sammie C

Its on there

Morgan McIntosh

Not to be dramatic, but this song feels like the loving, maternal comfort of God. I always come back to listen when times are bad, makes me feel like I'm crying in the arms of unconditional love.
