Maybe I didn't like to hear
But I still can't believe
Speed Racer is dead
So then I thought I'd make some plans
The fire thought
She'd really rather be water instead

And Peggy got a message for me
From Jesus
And I've heard every word
That she was saying
And I know I have been
Driven like the snow

This is cooling
This is cooling
This is cooling
Faster than I can
This is cooling
Faster than I can

So then love walked up to like
She said I know that you don't like me much
Let's go for a ride
This ocean is wrapped around that pineapple
Tree

And is your place in heaven Worth giving up
These kisses
These kisses

And Peggy got a message for me
From Jesus
And I heard every word that she had said

And I know I have been
Driven like the snow

This is cooling
This is cooling
Faster than I can
This is cooling
Faster than I can

Yes, this is cooling
This is cooling

    And "Is your place in Heaven worth giving up these kisses, these years. . ." Going on to heaven without ever haven really fallen in love, got married, or had babies of her own. If you listen carefully, you will hear Marianne mentioned in a lot of her songs.

    I personally believe that this is about her friend, Marianne, who died in middle school. From what I hear, it was a POSSIBLE suicide. "Cooling faster than I can" says to me that everyone else seems to be moving on faster from the tragedy than she can. Just my theory.
