"slide in next to me" as written by and Adrian Deutsch....
yes, we can make a difference
no, it's not enough to say you know my name
sure, it's not all you're good for
but still, it's what you're here for

if you want it
you can have it
if you want it
you can slide in next to me

if you need it
no need to leave it
you can see it
you can slide in next to me

yes, we can break the surface
and fall onto what's beneath us
sure, it's not all you're good for
but still it's what your paid for

if you want it
you can have it
if you want it
you can slide in next to me

if you need it
no need to leave it
you can see it
you can slide in next to me

    General Commenti saw these guys live aswell, living end convert too. they were fantastic, more better live than the cd (personal opinion). i think this song is about a relationship, the guy is saying 'you and i will be something special, all you need to do is be with me'. and he's also saying 'if you want me, just slide in next to me'... that's my interpretation of it.

    General Commentthis is another great song from the red riders debut album!!! the meaning of the song is quite obvious- i dont think that he feels anything deeper for this person.

    General CommentThis song is sexy =D
    And I agree with Danagirl. 'Cept my friend saw them live and he said he was absolutely off his face on something other than alcohol and couldnt even finish the performance properly... He was rolling around on the floor. hahaha. I love the Red Riders.

    General Commentwhaaaatt guys i actually think he is singing about meaningless sex.

    its not enough to just know my name, you are a stranger, and although you maybe a good person and have great characteristics about yourself you only came here to screw with me.
    and that both of us know that you want this so "slide in next to me"

    "yes, we can break the surface
    and fall onto what's beneath us" may mean that we may actually get to know each other and get past the "surface" and have a deeper connection.

    it may also have to do with simple conversations and how he sings "but still its what youre paid for" ... i dont know actually but yeah.


    thats basically what how i interpret the song.

    i love these guys. and this song.

    General Commenti think its about a girl he wants to have sex with. "sure, it's not all you're good for
    but still it's what your paid for" maybe shes employed somehow by the band. ArtBitch is totally right about the "break the surface" bit and later on they might have a deeper connection but i think he just wants sex at that moment.
    i love this song. red riders are awesome. im suprised their new stuff isnt up. "ordinary" has a more upbeat sound than "slide in next to me" but its still chill
