Lyrics:

Here in my car
I feel safest of all
I can lock all my doors
It's the only way to live
In cars

Here in my car
I can only receive
I can listen to you
It keeps me stable for days
In cars

Here in my car
Where the image breaks down
Will you vis­it me please
If I open my door
In cars

Here in my car
I know I've star­ted to think
About leav­ing tonight
Although noth­ing seems right
In cars
