NEW CAR SMELL

Lyrics by Peter Merz and Blair Byron Maclean
Music by Peter Merz

Life's roads have been rough and tough
On this old car of mine
The tire pressure's down again
I need to be realigned
A lifetime of coffee cups
Litter the back seat
The spare tire’s gone AWOL
The carpet’s worn out under my feet

PRE-CHORUS
I've got five dollars in my pocket
And the fuel reads "empty soul"
You know it ain’t no rocket
But I know it’ll get me home

CHORUS
View from the driver’s side
Seems the sun is always in my eyes
I follow the voice of God's GPS
Through this Interstate of Lies
Take the off ramp to the "narrow way"
These bumpy roads rough up my Chevelle
Even though I drive this old beater
There's still that new car smell
That new car smell
Breathe it in
That new car smell
Breathe it in

Was long past due for a paint job
Eighty-some thousand miles back
These spark plugs got no spark
Some dents you just can’t mask
My pit-stops few and far between
There’s another busted light
These streets are downright mean
Better not stop here tonight

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
At the Divine Intersection
Where Grace and Mercy meet
Christ grants new direction
When I park at His feet
And when I’m runnin’ on empty
He fills my tank to overflowing
As I drive eternal miles
New life He is bestowing

INSTRUMENTAL

REPEAT CHORUS

TAG/END
Breathe it in, breathe it in
That new car smell, breathe it in
Breathe it in, breathe it in
That new car smell, breathe it in
