Driving
The Dining Rooms Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Driving down this high way
Lot of questions buzzing on my mind
Rolling down this road again
Looking for a place where I can hide
I don't know what's wrong with me
All I know is that I need someone to st me free

I don't know when this started
Wonder if I'll ever find a way
I don't care
All I want to do is run away

(Don't know what's wrong with me)

Lookin in the Murrow
I don't even recognise myself
I see a face iv never seen before
And I don't want to see that stranger anymore
I don't know what's wrong with me
All I know is that I need someone to set me free
Wondering when this started

Wonder if I'll ever find a way
I don't care cos all I wanna do is run away
(Don't know what's wrong with me)

Wonder if I'll ever find a way
But I don't care
Cos all I want to do is run away
(Don't know what's wrong with me)
Wonder if I'll ever find a way
(Someone to set me free)

Interlude...

Riding down this high way
Lot of questions buzzing on my mind
Rolling down this road again
Looking for a place that I can hide
I don't know what's wrong with me

All I know is that o need someone to set me free
(Don't know what's wrong with me)

Wonder if I would ever find a way
I don't care
Cos all I wanna do is run away
(Don't know what's wrong with me)
Wonder if I would ever find a way
(Someone to set me free)

I don't care
Cos all I want to do is run away
(Don't know what's wrong with me)
Wonder if I would ever find a way
(Someone to set me free)
