Miles Per Hour

O Miles Per Hour

Freedom, foot on pedal

Propels my machine of metal

 

20 miles per hour

Windows down

Volume up

Off the grid

Hair whips around

 

36 miles per hour

Pushing the limit

No full stops

Won’t get caught

 

52 miles per hour

Left

Highway

Freedom

Faster

Fuller

Fire

Fate

Accelerate

 

67 miles per hour

Life in the middle lane

Balance - not fast, not slow

Bon Jovi - Livin’ on a prayer

Volume up

Top down

Hair up

Pedal down

 

73 miles per hour

Veer left, ride along the cost

Late afternoon sun

Push it to the most

3,2,1 all scream

It’s a summer dream
