about

Drive Like Steve McQueen is the first single off the new record The Heart Breaks due out April 15th.

lyrics

I wish I could start a car on the street
Throw my bag on the passenger seat
And drive through the pouring rain to your house
Screeching tires, blinding car lights

I’d drive like Steve McQueen
I’d drive like Steve McQueen

I would honk the dead back to life
Scream your name in the pouring rain
With both my arms raised to your balcony
I’d scream how much I love you, that we should marry

I’d drive like Steve McQueen
I’d drive like Steve McQueen

How it all went wrong is an old story
Of pride, unspoken words and bad timing
But I’d drive because love is so much stronger
Than the clumsiness of its owner

I’d drive like Steve McQueen
I’d drive like Steve McQueen

I can’t open a car without the keys
I don’t own a damn car and I’m scared that maybe
You’ll keep your window closed and call the police
You’ll keep your window closed and call the police
There’s a girl out there she says she’s Steve McQueen
I ain’t no Steve McQueen….I ain’t no Steve McQueen.

Pauline Andrès Nashville, Tennessee

Pauline Andrès writes songs about drunks, working men and lost girls. Supported by strong arrangements, she serves her stories with a husky voice and spot on melodies that already got her compared to the most respected names around. It's some of darkest Alt-Country you'll find around
“…like a Lynchian lullaby – all brooding menace, and dark-eyes girls in riding boots. With guns.“ - Lost At E Minor
