The Automatic – Steve McQueen lyrics

Can't put my finger on what's changed
To my surprise I found everything the same
In a house that's not quite home
Nothing was missing but something had gone

I hadn't seen my reflection in a while
I tried to? Direction for miles
So I took a walk through town
To see if someone moved the streets around

I was a teenage Steve Mcqueen
My best performance escaping
I was a teenage Steve Mcqueen
My best performance escaped me

The engine was running but I couldn't get away
I didn't see any reason to stay
All my visions have been erased
Cast an extra with nothing to say

I wrote myself into a new storyline
This part was different this time it was mine
Now I'm lost in my own town
It seems like someone moved the streets around

I was a teenage Steve Mcqueen
My best performance escaping
I was a teenage Steve Mcqueen
My best performance escaped me

Everything just as I left it
But it wasn't me who left it
The position had been filled

Everything just as I left it
But it wasn't me who left it
The position had been filled

Just chasing just chasing just chasing my tail
Just chasing just chasing just chasing my tail
I'm just
Trying to
With myself
Catch up
Trying to
I'm just trying to catch up with myself
Catch up with
Catch up
Trying to catch, catch up
With myself

I was a teenage Steve Mcqueen
My best performance escaping
I was a teenage Steve Mcqueen
My best performance escaped me

Everything just as I left it
But it wasn't me who left it
The position had been filled

Everything just as I left it
But it wasn't me who left it
The position had been filled

I was a teenage Steve Mcqueen
My best performance escaped me
I was a teenage Steve Mcqueen
My best performance escaping
