Asleep At The Wheel (Live From Pabst Theater, Milwaukee, WI/2012)

Peter Frampton

I was born out of love
And given a chance
Playing with fast cars

There were so many children
Born with no choices
Stealing their hearts

Now look at the downside
Making it harder
To survive, yeah

So hard to imagine
When taking 'bout strangers
Against your will

You swallow in silence
With petrified tears
Bound and so still

God knows what you're thinking
This life as you knew it
Has just disappeared

We've been asleep at the wheel
Wrapped up and what do we feel?
Living beyond all our means
Burning and living the dream

So many years of not knowing
With false talk and letdowns
When hope is a wish

You would have stayed in denial
Don't even try to escape
It don't exist

Up high on the hill
It's no place for conscience
It's your only fight

We've been asleep at the wheel
Wrapped up and what do we feel?
Living beyond all our means
Burning and living the dream
We're only here for the moment
It's slow when you wanted speed

So many life's and lies
Time has taken its toll, it's true
We'll never give up on you
One day you'll be free

I've been asleep at the wheel
Wrapped up and what do I feel?
Living beyond all my means
Burning and living the dream
We're only here for a moment
It's slow when you wanted speed
