"Sweet Ride" as written by and Kristen Hall....
Courtney Jaye/Kristen Hall/Garrison Starr

i wish you would stay a while
blue eyes
how can i change your mind?
daylight
isn't the finish line
isn't an exit sign
this could be a long road
i've been in this bed before
waiting
your already out the door
save me
why do you have to run?
honey it's only love

it can be a sweet ride
it can be a long drop
it can take a wrong turn right to a dead end
it can make your heart stop
it can lead nowhere
you wont know unless you go there
it can be one more goodbye
or it can be a sweet ride

it hasn't been paradise
lately
your looking at me like i'm
crazy
there's nothing to lose at all
i already took the fall

it can be a sweet ride
it can be a long drop
it can take a wrong turn right to a dead end
it can make your heart stop
it can lead nowhere
you wont know unless you go there
it can be one more goodbye
or it can be a sweet ride

i don't know the future holds
but i'm taking you with me

it can be a sweet ride
it can be a long drop
it can take a wrong turn right to a dead end
it can make your heart stop
it can lead nowhere
you wont know unless you go there
it can be one more goodbye
or it can be a sweet ride

    General CommentI can't believe no one's commented on this song yet!!!! this is an AMAZING song! It makes me feel so serene lol i basically think it's about taking a chance (maybe in a relationship...maybe in life) and just kind of rolling with it - riding it out lol and it can be a sweet ride ... the lyrics are really quite deep and applicable to everyday life :-)

    General CommentThe song is more than what you've inferred. The song is about a casual sexual relationship in which the female is left wanting more than the male is offering. "Daylight isnt the finish line, isnt an exit sign" means hey, just because its morning and we're done having sex doesnt mean you have to go". She wants to share more and be more to him than just a booty call. And he's probably all jaded by some dumb girl who screwed him over.

    General CommentI fell in love with this song while at work. It was one of those songs that plays over and over, I typically hear it twice a shift (depends on the length obviously). I think miriam22 has hit the head on the nail, but at the same time I like to relate songs to my life. My boyfriend of two and a half years is leaving for the Army in May and when we spend time together and he goes home, I say to him (in my head) "I wish you would stay long". Since he told me last summer that he wanted to go into the service, I have mentally fought to be okay with it. Well, it can be a "sweet ride" if we make it so. And I really love at the end when Jaye says "I don't know what the future holds, but I'm taking you with me." In my heart, its saying, I'm not sure where we're going, but we'll be together either way.
