Automatic, The - Steve McQueen Lyrics




Can't put my finger on what's changed
To my surprise I found everything the same
In a house that's not quite home
Nothing was missing but something had gone

I hadn't seen my reflection in a while
I tracked in all direction for miles
So I took a walk through town
To see if someone moved the streets around

I was a teenage Steve McQueen
My best performance escaping
I was a teenage Steve McQueen
My best performance escaped me

The engine was running but I couldn't get away
I didn't see any reason to stay
All my visions have been erased
Cast an extra with nothing to say

I wrote myself into a new storyline
This part was different this time it was mine
Now I'm lost in my own town
It seems like someone moved the streets around

I was a teenage Steve McQueen
My best performance escaping
I was a teenage Steve McQueen
My best performance escaped me

Everything just as I left it
But it wasn't me who left it
The position had been filled

Everything just as I left it
But it wasn't me who left it
The position had been filled

I'm just chasing, just chasing, just chasing my tail
I'm just chasing, just chasing, just chasing my tail
I'm trying to catch up with myself
I'm trying to catch up with myself
I'm trying to catch up with myself
I'm trying to catch up with myself

I was a teenage Steve McQueen
My best performance escaping
I was a teenage Steve McQueen
My best performance escaped me

Everything just as I left it
But it wasn't me who left it
The position had been filled

Everything just as I left it
But it wasn't me who left it
The position had been filled

I was a teenage Steve McQueen
My best performance escaped me
I was a teenage Steve McQueen
My best performance escaping

  54. ben salter

  55. fucktheutubeusername

    the automatic is became a band like sum 41 ,blink 182and the others
    :/

  56. Danny W

    indie by numbers

  57. RichJBrown

    great tune :)

  58. Nathan Roberts

    same here, and its such a good song

  59. Craig Hay

    First heard it as the soundtrack to a highlights clip show for the F1 Italian GP on the official F1 website and loved the song and the vid that came with it, been addicted to the song since then, just brilliant

  60. Adam

    Great Song, Great Setting ;D (even tho its sad to see those old birds in that state :[)

  61. violentrealignment

    this is one infectious song. I caught it on the radio four days ago and I haven't been able to get it out of my head!

  62. David Farmer

    i used to bloody hate the automatic but this song is probably the best song i have heard all year and i like metal/hardcore and that but this is mint!!!

  63. asda1111

    i love waking up to this on the radiox]

  64. PandaPalmer22

    soz didnt mean 2 do dat

  65. themoosden

    The song is about them leaving their home town in Wales and returning to find it's changed.

    'Teenage Steve McQueen' refers to them always trying to get out of the town when they were younger like The Great Escape.

  66. Adler

    :/ imo the guys with the glasses aren't geeky or nerdy at all and do not let the band down in any way. If they choose to look like that, then let them be.

  67. Tom Gregory

    The best thing The Automatic ever did was get rid of that yappy dog sounding guy! This song is true class.

  68. Jon Davies

    cardiff sucks :L

  69. Skinno

    because 1 member left

  73. scarredcobra

    paul mullens makes the difference,. turned these weasels into real men

  74. juanjo7787

    the song is great..but i hope they´ll not abandon their old style among synths

  75. Josh T

    But the musicianship on this song is kick ass!

  76. Josh T

    I like the old album better. This song just isnt as unique as their older stuff it seems.

  77. Gemzy

    Awsome! great video. cant wait for the album. =]

  78. missjith

    Pretty good!
