I look at her and have to smile
As we go driving for a while
Her hair blowing in the open window of my car
And as we go, the trafic lights
I watch them glimmer in her eyes
In the darkness of the evening

Oh, and I've got all that I need
Right here in the passenger seat
Oh, and I can't keep my eyes on the road
Knowing that she's inches from me

We stop to get something to drink
My mind clouds and I can't think
I'm scared to death to say I love her
And then the moon creeps from the clouds
I hear her heart, it beats so loud
I try to tell her simply

That I've got all that I need
Right here in the passenger seat
And I can't keep my eyes on the road
Knowing that she's inches from me

Oh, And I've got all that I need
Right here in the passenger seat
Oh, And I can't keep my eyes on the road
Knowing that she's inches from me

Oh, and I know, this love grows

Oh, And I've got all that I need
Right here in the passenger seat
Oh, And I can't keep my eyes on the road
Knowing that she's inches from me

Oh, And I've got all that I need
(I look at her and have to smile, as we go driving for a while)
Right here in the passenger seat
(Her hair blowing in the open window of my car)
Oh, And I can't keep my eyes on the road
(And as we go, I see the lights, I watch them glimmer in her eyes)
Knowing that she's inches from me
(In the darkness of the evening)

Oh, And I've got all that I need
(I look at her and have to smile, as we go driving for a while)
Right here in the passenger seat
(Her hair blowing in the open window of my car)
Oh, And I can't keep my eyes on the road
(And as we go, I see the lights, I watch them glimmer in her eyes)
Knowing that she's inches from me
(In the darkness of the evening)

Oh, And I've got all that I need
(I look at her and have to smile, as we go drivin' for a while)
Right here in the passenger seat

    General Commentthis song is amazing. when you love someone.....you're in a state of euphoria...yet at the same time, you are scared to death of losing that person. just knowing that person is next to you...even in just a simple car ride, takes your breath away.

    General CommentDang, This Is The First Song I Ever Heard By Stephen Speaks And I Just Fell In Love. I Completely Found It On Accident Too. I Have Put It On About 10 Mix CDs In The Last Few Months And I Always Pair It With Death Cab For Cutie's Song Of The Same Name. While This Song Takes The Perspective Of The Driver, DCFC's Song Is From The Passanger Seat. Amazing Songs.
