LA to Reno
Checking out the scene-o
Feeling so mean-o
Sometimes I wish I could crash and burn
Winding through the hot night
Without my headlights, 20/20 hindsight
Sometimes I wish I could crash and burn

( Crash and burn )
And I never ever felt so lonely
( Crash and burn )
Can't look them in the eye
Just wanna drive and drive and drive

Going nowhere, and I don't care
Can't wait 'til I get there
Sometimes I wish I could crash and burn

50, 60, 70, 80, 90
Gotta be a place where they can't find me
Watching all those birdges burn behind me
And if I can't see what's passing me
Nothing can touch me
Well, I'll fly
I wish I could crash and burn

On my Philco, I hear an echo
There was a wreck -o yesterday
And by tomorrow they'll sweep the char -o
And wash the tar and trouble away
I wish I would, I wish I would, I wish I could.
