The Lyrics

This is aimed at a niche crowd - people who love (and drive) old cars
First I was afraid,
Thought I'd never heal
Kept thinking I could never drive
Without you at my wheel
But I spent so many nights
Thinking how you fixed me wrong
I grew strong
I learned how to carry on
And so you're back
From another place
I just drove in to find you here
With that eager look upon your face
I should have changed my column lock
I should have made you leave your key
If I had known for just one second
You'd be back to compete in me

Go on now, go walk out the door
Just turn around now
'Cause you're not welcome anymore
Weren't you the one who tried to leave me bust
You think I'd crumble
You think I'd lay down and rust
Oh no, not I
I will survive
As long as I know how to rev
I know I will stay alive
I've got all my HPs to live
I've got all my revs to give
And I'll survive
I will survive

It took all the strength I had
Not to give in
Kept trying hard to mend
The pieces of my broken engine
And I spent oh so many nights
Just feeling sorry for myself
I'd wonder
Now I hold my lights up high
And you see me
In a body, new
I'm not that chained up little 'Rover
Still in need of you
And so you felt like dropping in
And just expect me to be free
Now I'm saving all my Reving
For someone who's driving me
