"We Went For A Ride" as written by and Levine/dobson....
We went for a ride
Undercover of the twilight
And the traffic on the road
And there's only you and I
I hope we never get back home
'Cause I'm feeling serenaded
By the coming of the night
And I wish we'd go forever
And I wish we could just

Drive away
We could drive away
We could drive away
Into the night

We went for a ride
With your words of consolation
And the trees of crystal white
I'll be praying for a red light
To extend this precious night

'Cause we both know where I'm going
And we know it just ain't right
But there's nothing we can do
Except to keep on moving

Drive away
We could drive away
We could drive away
Into the night

We went for a ride
We went for a ride
We went for a ride

We went for a ride

Here we are
We are alone together

We went for a ride

Here we are
We are alone together

Here we are
We are alone together
We went for a ride

Here we are
We are alone together
Here we are

Here we are
We are alone together
Drive away
Drive away
To any place faraway

Here we are
We are alone together

    General CommentIt makes me think of two people who are just in love. But for some reason can't be together. And they just want to get away, but eventully they have to come back to relaity.

    General CommentShe's going somewhere or she has to do something that will split them up.
    So she just wishes she could get away from everything and not have to face the reality of anything.
    Even though, they're sitting together, they're both thinking about themselves inside their heads, so it's like they're alone together.

    General CommentI'm not so sure that the meaning is obvious as dying2reachgreen states, some would say it must be romantic like ryo.chen. It reminds me of going out with my best friend before he went off to the Army, in a hindsight way. They're some of the best memories I have but it was kinda just us driving without problems, getting away for a while.
