Les Savy Fav – Roadside Memorial Lyrics

You can drive a car
But you have to ride a horse
We ride our lives
Of course you know
From barn to yard
To wood to road
There was once a hand
That would carry me anywhere
That was 19 years ago
Now my feet know where to go
These things happen
I’ve got to hand it to my heart;
It should have shattered long ago
But the goddamned thing won’t fall apart
We’re traveling at the speed of sound
It’s a good, great place to crash a car
But I don’t think we have to do it
Throw our notebooks out the window
And put our family names into it
I’ve lost track of the ambulance chasers
Coming up behind the car
It’s a 5 car pile-up
That’s a 1 heart pile-up
