Track Name: Pace
I’m driving on the highway, every tree flies by the eyes
Within a little while, a hundred km/h seems like anything else
Feels like nothing fast, nothing dangerous, nothing kicking anymore
Just driving at a pace of calming down

They say if you finally get want you want
You will start to miss how you got there in the first place
Like frogs always trying to get quicker and higher
Before they are too old to jump around
By then they think of their youth, they look back and carry on
They look back and carry on, at a pace of calming down

Driving, driving, don‘t disturb, I’m driving on the highway
All the frogs are jumping, busy jumping, surrounded by everyone jumping Time is passing, frogs are aging; but they, they keep on jumping

'Cause they still know, still remember, still have that feeling colour-inked in their heads
How it’s used to be not to fear, not to care, just to fall and break free Maybe get hurt, maybe even scarred, like every adventure would be
In the end you’ll have a lifetime to heal your broken heart at a pace of calming down
When your pace finally calms down, you will see all you’ve looked for is already found
Am I getting closer now? Or is that moment still to come?

I’m driving on the highway, every tree flies by the eyes
Within a little while, a hundred km/h seems like anything else
Track Name: 高速
换最高档我飞上高速,两旁树像动画闪过眼目
旁边车都是一样流淌,风驰电掣很普通
不算快,不危险,不特殊,没什么刺激的角度
只是跟所有车一样,越开越没有感触

俗话说成功后才明白
最美好的日子在奋斗的中途
像青蛙年轻时比跳高,比跳远
没有一个能甘心地服输
而一路跳来才渐渐清醒,没有谁能总跳不停
既然不能总跳不停,不妨边跳边看风景

高速驾驶不能停
高速驾驶不能停
不用管开车人的心情,也不能瞌睡,不能回忆

因为回忆会把你带到那无忧无虑的场景
那个夏天充满希望和活力我们放肆地年轻
一番话,几个人,一个梦,共识达成就开步同行
选错道没关系,反正高速上没人把行驶道锁定
而路上开远才开始清醒,没有人能总开不停
开得快不如开得稳的旅行,时不时看看窗外风景

换最高档我飞上高速,两旁树像动画闪过眼目
旁边车都是一样流淌,风驰电掣很普通
