The world around me just won’t stop spinning.
It’s like a roller coaster that just wont give.

I see my life and dreams go flying by and it makes me sick

So many things I haven’t done and so many people I haven’t met

My life spins, spins out of control;
And all I do is nod and take a drink

I have thoughts of the love I have never felt;
And the dreams I never lived

Why didn’t you stop me stop and take the keys?
Why did I have that last drink?

You should have said no and taken the keys;
You should have saved my life but you didn’t

Now as a lay here in the ditch see my life flow past my eyes;
I can see the lights coming closer as it all fades away

As I lay here all I can think of is the life I never lived and the dreams I lived had.

I saw that guy die six feet in front of me. It is still sad after two years. For real.
