B5 E5   x2 

B5
                    E5
When you motor away
                          B5
Beyond the once-red lips
                       E5 
When you free yourself
                              B5
From the chance of a lifetime
                        E5
You can be anyone they told you to
                        G#5 
You can belittle every little voice that told you so
          Eb5                                       G#5
Then the time will come when you add up the numbers
                        Eb5
Then the time will come
                    F#5
When you motor away
      F#5/F              F#5/E
Oh, why donít you just drive away?

B5 E5   x2


B5
                    E5
When you motor away
                    B5
Down the icy streets
                          E5
You can't lie to yourself
                                   B5
That it's the chance of a lifetime
                        E5
You can be anyone they told you to
                        G#5 
You can belittle every little voice that told you so
          Eb5                                       G#5
Then the time will come when you add up the numbers
                        Eb5
Then the time will come
                    F#5
When you motor away
      F#5/F              F#5/E
Oh, why donít you just drive away?

     B5  E5
Come on
      B5  E5
Speed on
