I could drive
This road with my eyes closed
Know every part home
The three miles
My place to yours

I used to fly
And be at your door in a matter of seconds
You'd be outside waiting by the road

And we wouldn't mind getting lost
And at every light where the roads will cross
Thinking in our heads

Please turn red
Another light is another minute
Another kiss that you knew I meant
Please turn red

Grant me just another second
One more chance to gaze into those innocent eyes
Just another red light

I'm sitting in this car
And I'm dragging my feet
Watching my speed
And no hurry to tell you this

Yeah I'm suppose
To say over coffee
Grounds for why I think we should end
Oh what should I do?

Oh and now I wouldn't mind getting lsot
Like every night since our roads have crossed
Say a little prayer

Please turn red
Another light means another minute
Another kiss that I thought I meant
Yeah please turn red

Grant me just another second
One more chance before I see those innocent eyes
Just another red light

It felt so real but it was just a dream
I hate what these lies have come to mean
Well I try to carry the load
Didn't want you to know
I'm pulled to the side of the road

Please turn red
Another light means another minute
Another kiss that I thought I meant
Yeah please turn red

Grant me just another second
One more chance before I see those innocent eyes
Just another red light (x4)

    General CommentI may be completely wrong about this, but...A guy is in a relationship that he is about to end. He is dreading breaking the bad news to her; therefore, he wants the stoplight to turn red so that he has more time before he has to tell her.

    General CommentAndy explained this song at one of his concerts because everyone kept getting the meaning wrong and using it as a love song when its actually a break up song...

    at the begining their still in a relationship
    "Please turn red
    Another light is another minute
    Another kiss that you knew I meant"
    and he doesn't want to take her home; he just wants to be stopped at every red light so he can kiss her.
    But then he lies to her about something or another
    "It felt so real but it was just a dream
    I hate what these lies have come to mean"
    and now he wants to just take that rode to her house one last time to talk it over coffee.
