Fear's like an old friend, he's at your back, he knows your head
Wants to believe that nothing's changed
Well, I'm like an old car, I've traveled far, I know these ways
My leather is worn, but that's okay
But I'm not sure what this passenger wants from me

Answer my questions: What is life? What is your name?
Where did you learn to play the game?
Tell me your secret, it's okay, I've got my share too
Sharing is something my old friend told me to never do
Show me the way, and I'll stay and follow you

Life feels like this when you're near
And you’ve washed away my fear
My old friend won’t be bothering again

Do you need a ride? Well, hop in
I’ll take you where you need to go, I'll give you wings
We're on our ways now, when you discover mine, be kind
This old engine isn't much, but it gives me wings to

Fly, and feel like this when you’re near
But my old friend is coming back again to steer

After the wreckage, this old car can’t pull its weight
But at least I can say I fell gracefully
