lyrics

i've been driving around town
with my head spinning around
everywhere i look i see
your '96 jeep cherokee

you're a bully and a clown
you made me cry and put me down
after all that i've been through
you'd think i'd hate the sight of you

but with every jeep i see
my broken heart still skips a beat
i guess it's just my stupid luck
that all of boston drives
the same black fucking truck

it could be him
or am i tripping
and i'm crashing into everything
and thinking about
skipping town awhile
until these cars go out of style

i try to see it in reverse
it makes the situation
hundreds of times worse
when i wonder if it makes
you want to cry
every time you see
a light blue volvo driving by

so don't tell me if you're
off to see the world
i know you won't get very far
don't tell me if you
get another girl, baby
just tell me if you
get another car

the number of them is insane
every exit's an
ex-boyfriend memory lane
every major street's
a minor heart attack
i see a red jeep
and i want to paint it black

it could be him
or am i tripping
and i'm crashing
into everything
i can't wait
til you trade the damn thing in
buy it and they will
have put me in the loony bin

it could be him
my heart is pounding
it's just no use
i'm surrounded
but one day
i'll steal your car
and switch the gears
and drive that cherokee
straight off
this trail of tears
