"Drive" as written by and Bic (briolette Kah) Runga....
I know it's late now I know I
Ought to go
Ride in your car now
But please don't drop me home
My head's so heavy
Could
This be all a dream
Promise me
Maybes and say things
You don't mean
Rain fall from concrete colored skies
No boy don't speak now
You just drive
Drive
Drive
Take me through make me feel alive
Alive
When I ride with you
Keep my heart turning on
Axles around you
Keep our love burning just
Like it used to do
Now just for us
They could
Play our favourite tune
Let's not discuss
All these
Things we can't undo
Let rain fall from concrete coloured skies
No boy don't speak now
You just drive
Drive
Drive
Speed me through
Make me feel alive
Alive
When I ride with you
Rain fall from concrete coloured skies
No boy don't speak now
You just drive

    General Commenti think this song is about a couple going through problems.. the narrator obviously cares about him, and regrets what happened (perhaps the problems are the "promise me maybes and say things you dont mean").

    "keep our love burning just like it used to do" and "lets not discuss all these things we cant undo" give that feeling of regret.. remembrance of a better time in their relationship.

    this is a beautiful song. even the "concrete colored skies" give the image of a lifeless day (i think most skies are really beautiful, but that plain gray sky, where it drizzles rain, its depressing and lifeless), where only being with the person she cares about gives that ride any life to it. awesome song :)

    General CommentI think this song is about her thinking about all their troubles while they're having sex.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs from Bic Runga. I like how the song is simply done, by acoustic guitar. For the meaning of the song, I'd have to agree with the second comment made. A beautiful, simple song.

    General CommentWhen I listen to this song I think she has just broken up with someone and he is driving her home. So she knows it's over but doesn't want to believe it. She doesn't want him to drop her off because that will really be the end, whereas while they're in the car she can pretend everything's still all right.

    General CommentI love this song, it's so.. melancholy. I also love the simplicity of the song, being played by acoustic guitar as well; it makes the lyrics that much more powerful. I always thought this song was about someone falling out of love and knowing it was time to end things, but they had so much history filled with beautiful moments, she tried to focus on them, almost in an attempt to fool herself into believing they should still be together.
    "Rain fall from concrete coloured skies" is my favourite line too. Wonderful imagery.
