"Ride" as written by Edward Joel Kowalczyk, Chad David Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Alan Gracey....
You are everything I wanted
The scars of all I'll ever know

If I told you you were right
Would you take my hand tonight?
If I told you the reasons why
Would you leave your life and ride?
And rideâ?¦

You saw all my pieces broken
This darkness that I could never show

If I told you you were right
Would you take my hand tonight?
If I told you the reasons why
Would you leave your life and ride?
And rideâ?¦

    General CommentStarting again.
    Accepting flaws.
    Becoming vunerable.
    Letting go of the past.
    Holding on to someone you love.

    General CommentI am not sure what everyone else has said...but maybe it is about taking a chance on love, the love is someone who he may have known for a long time and may be in another relationship even. But he is kind of saying "you are everything to me and can you take this chance and try it out"....

    General CommentThis song stuck the very first time I heard it playing in The Lying Game. I kept playing back the episode, wishing I could mute the actors so I could hear it better!:-D Anyway, now I blissfully have it as my ring tone so...am good.

    It's the kind that stays with you. Keeps going through your mind. And yeah, I agree with the person who says that it's about someone asking his/her love to go away with him. May not even be a literal running away, but an invitation to take the journey of love and life together.

    General CommentHe is asking that if he loved her, if she would love him back. That's why he says 'If I told you, you were right, would you take my hand tonight?' I really like the beat of this song.

    note to self=when a guy tells you he likes you. NEVER EVER EVER tell him that you dont like him. because you may not like him now, but when he's gone it is soo painful to let go. past experience.

    I JUST LOVE THIS SONG.this guy really knows what love is like, and im someone who knows nothing about love. well other than my love for HEATH LEDGER,and of course cary brothers.

    General CommentI love this song. The beat and everything. I'm glad it's on The Last Kiss Soundtrack or I don't know if I would have found it otherwise..

    General CommentIt's definitely a beautiful song. Like blurrymonkey said, the sound of it is great; it draws me in. It just makes me think of finally finding "the one."

    I got the soundtrack to The Last Kiss and heard it on there, but it sounded so familiar to me. I'm a scrubs fanatic, and I realized it was used on the show once, and even figured out which episode it was in (I have a lot of free time to think and figure stuff out at my job). Season 5, Episode 10 - Her Story II. It plays with the conclusion of the episode.

    General CommentHow is this song not hugely popular. I love it to death -- i've had it on repeat a little too much =\
    To me I think it's about a guy who is ready to completely put himself out there for a girl, but only if the girl shows that she is ready to do so as well. Although, she has already seen a bad part of him so she might be hesitant to start a relationship.
    Still, an incredibly beautiful yet simple song.
