Uh-oh, Uh-oh
We went backwards
"Directionally impaired"
Those were your words

Oh I was sober
But to drive I wasn't fit
And the road came up so quickly
The road came up so quick

Uh-oh, Uh-oh
We went sideways
Past everything we ever made
Parking lot full of mistakes

My head was dizzy
But the steering wheel was square
Oh it wouldn't take me where I wanted
Wouldn't take me anywhere

Chorus:
Oh and I was blind to your design
You had it planned
out all the time
[Back and forth
That's the way we're going
So if you want, I can give you a ride
Drive around all night
and you hang out the side
Tune me out just like the radio]

Uh-oh, Uh-oh
We went nowhere
Can't release the brake
Stalled and it was too late

My day was vacant
And you came to fill it in
But my whole world would be shaking
If we said what we were planning

Chorus

I believe you'll fall
I believe you'll fall

Chorus

Oh I'd walk those three thousand miles to you
I'd walk them every step
but will you be there when I get there?
Will you be there til the end?

    General Commentit seems about a relationship going backwards but then they get in a car accident so they never get a second chance

    General CommentBest song in the whole album! And the first one to make mistake. I think the whole car ride thing is just a metaphor. It is about a relationship that goes back and forth and it really doesnt seem to be going anywhere but no one will put on the brakes or even say it outloud. They keep driving and going along for the ride.
