The:::Cars I'm:::
Not The One I'm

not the one that you'll be shootin' for and I'm
not the one who's coming back for more ~you know why~ We've
been through this too many times ~you know why~ It's
never clear it's pantomime Goin'

round and round 'cause you can't get on your feet Goin'
round and round still takin' all the heat Goin'
round and round never looking down I'm

not the one whose memory you still keepin' and I'm
not the one who's talkin' in his sleep ~you know why~ I
don't have to tell you twice ~you know why~ Knew
you when you weren't so nice Goin'

round and round 'cause you can't get on your feet Goin'
round and round still takin' all the heat Goin'
round and round never touching down I'm

not the one that you'll be breakin' in and I'm
not the one that you'll be takin' in ~you know why~ Tried
and tried to crack the shell ~you know why~ When
you fake it's hard to tell Goin'

round and round 'cause you can't get on your feet Goin'
round and round still takin' all the heat Goin'
round and round 'cause you can't get on your feet Goin'
round and round and round and round Goin'

round and round 'cause you can't get on your feet Goin'
round and round still takin' all the heat Goin'
round and round 'cause you can't get on your feet Goin'
round and round still takin' all the heat Goin'

round and round 'cause you can't get on your feet Goin'
round and round still takin' all the heat Goin'
round and round 'cause you can't get on your feet Goin'
round and round still takin' all the heat [Fades
