We're tiny engines
We try so hard
We climb our mountains
We fall and we scar
And we don't know what to do about it.

I picture my father
He leaves in his car
I can see him hit the road, hit the town
I can see him hit the bar
And we learn to live
Yeah, we learn to do without.

Summer streets burn underneath my feet
And I run home to your shiny white teeth
Can you take me out? Can you carry me?
You've got something I need.

I can play the victim
I can play it and win
I can bury my head, I can stay in my bed
I can run into a headwind.
