You say
you really love me
But baby I don’t know why
Ridin’ on a highway
In the daylight
While the moon’s still in the sky
I say
this mad existence
Baby, it has to end
Driving on a road that’s going nowhere
When we know what’s round the bend

Maybe in this car we have immunity
We both know that this ain’t gonna’ last
So before we just accept this as a casualty
Stay here while the last few moments pass

We turn on the engine
And turn off the world
We turn on each other
And don’t say a word
Tomorrow it’s over
But this is today
Yeah
Pull off the road
Turn on the radio
Do what we know
Then drive away

Your lips
To my lips
No words to get in the way
Kissin’ you and getting no resistance
‘Cause there’s nothing left to say
Anger
And heartache
The why and what went wrong
Lock the doors and roll up all the windows
Shut it out and get it on

Maybe in this car we have immunity
(We both know that)
We both know that this ain’t gonna last
So before we just accept this as a casualty
Stay here while the last few moments pass

We turn on the engine
And turn off the world
We turn on each other
And don’t say a word
Tomorrow it’s over
But this is today
Yeah
Pull off the road
Turn on the radio
Do what we know
Then drive away

Once more for the ride again
If we could change the tide again
I’d do anything to try again
With you

We turn on the engine
And turn off the world
We turn on each other
And don’t say a word
Tomorrow it’s over
But this is today
Yeah
Pull off the road
Turn on the radio
Pull off the road
Turn on the radio
Tomorrow it’s over
But this is today
Yeah
Turn off the road
Turn on the radio
Do what we know
Then drive away
Do what we know
Then drive away
Do what we know
Then drive away

    General CommentGreat song. I think what Keaton is singing about is pretty straight forward. It didn't work out, although he wished it had, but before they just give up, they might as well get it on one last time, and then "drive away". Keep it up Keaton and you won't be such a secret anymore.

    General CommentMaybe my mind is corrupt, but I'm pretty sure it's about (dare I say it)
    sexing in a car.
