Automatic Lyrics

[Verse 1: Tom DeLonge]
You're on the ride, but it’s not like they said it was
You had a plan, but it wasn't quite good enough
You're in the race, but you just feel like giving up
You have a song, now you just wanna turn it up

[Pre-Chorus: Tom DeLonge]
Jump on your feet, get up and pass go
Yeah, now dance when I say so

[Chorus: Tom DeLonge]
She likes to dream, I can see it in her eyes
She’s on automatic
At seventeen, only wants what she can't find
She's on automatic

[Verse 2: Tom DeLonge]
Catching up wasn't quite like they said it was
Finding love isn't fun if it hurts too much
Losing friends 'cause you can't always stay in touch
A broken heart only comes up if you're growing up

[Pre-Chorus: Tom DeLonge]
Jump on your feet, get up and pass go
Yeah, now dance when I say so

[Chorus: Tom DeLonge]
She likes to dream, I can see it in her eyes
She’s on automatic
At seventeen, only wants what she can’t find
She's on automatic
Light it up like a star in the night sky
It’s so dramatic
A pretty girl with a spark that she can't hide
She's on automatic

[Chorus: Tom DeLonge]
She likes to dream, I can see it in her eyes
She's on automatic
At seventeen, only wants what she can’t find
She's on automatic
Light it up like a star in the night sky
It's so dramatic
A pretty girl with a spark that she can't hide
She's on automatic

[Outro: Tom DeLonge]
(She's on automatic) Automatic
(She's on automatic) Automatic
(She's on automatic) So dramatic
(She's on automatic) Automatic
