Slow me down, live and learn.
Not a chance I would turn
From the road that I've followed
Oh the best that I can.

Some have tried, all have failed.
Rather die than derail.
Who am I to be sprawled out
On the pavement again?

I was speeding by and
You were a pebble.
You caught my eye,
that was it - that was it
Swerved to the right then
Rolled like a barrel
But you saved my life,
Pulled me out of the ditch
Oh you did...

Half a heart, half a wheel.
So the treads, I can feel
Wearing out as I travel
Oh too far from your hand...

When I felt your hands on me
I knew instantly without a doubt.
I was just a casualty
Lying hopelessly upon the ground
Then I was found.
