"The Driveway" as written by and Scott Michael/preven Cutler....
After twelve, not so well
Won't pretend it's too soon to tell
What's 'round this bend
No disgrace, about face
Anything not to have to chase
You down again

You know
Nothing hurts like losing
When ya know it's really gone
Except for the pain of choosin'
To hold too long

I tried it your way
But I got nothing to show
It's been the same, same
And the story's getting old
So I guess the driveway
Will be the end of the road
For us it's too late
Let the credits start to roll

A lot to say, but not today
Let the radio break the silence
As we drive
A kiss goodbye, not this time
Don't remember what about this song
I ever liked

You know
Nothing hurts like losing
When ya know I'm already gone
Except for the pain of choosin'
To hold too long

I tried it your way
But I got nothing to show
It's been the same, same
And the story's getting old
So I guess the driveway
Will be the end of the road
For us it's too late
Let the credits start to roll

I thought maybe we were getting somewhere
But we're still nowhere at all
I watched your tail lights fading
I try but it still won't fall
I remember what it feels like
To know love and have it taken away
I can't think of what I learned right now
But I'll be thanking you someday

I tried it your way
But I got nothing to show
You know, it's been the same, same
And the story's getting old
So I guess the driveway
Will be the end of the road
For us it's too late
Let the credits start to roll

Let the credits start to roll

So I guess the driveway
Will be the end of the road
(Be the end of the road)

Will be the end of the road
(Be the end of the road)

    General CommentI feel the song is about a relationship thats not working and you know whats going to happen. It hurts to know that your in a relationship thats not going to work out and you keep holding on even tho you want to let go.

    General Commentthis song is pretty cute.
    it reminds me of angels and airwaves, whom i do not like.
    but i like this song.
    and you think miley is big now?
    no. just no. when this cd comes out
    she's gonna be fucking huge.
    so big, that she will most likely take over the country
    honestly, i'm not kidding.

    General CommentI like this song. But i don't like the line "no disgrace about face" it seems like it was only put there for the sake of rhyming. If i'm wrong please let me know. But I do like the song. Even though I'm not a huge fan of Miley Cyrus.

    General Commentlimepops, I thought the same thing. That line doesn't make much sense unless it means something about reputation, you know the phrase 'saving face'? Maybe it pertains to that.

    General Commentyeah about face is like turning 180 degrees. idkk i used to horse back ride and in some shows we'd have to do an about face which is turning your horse around while moving from the same spot as little as possible. so...yeah if that helps[:

    General CommentYou know, at first, I was quick to judge Miley's new album, and quite negatively might I add. I take that back, although this isn't actual alternative/rock, it's a step up from her usual princess pop-star stuff.

    I really think this song is about two different, and I mean DIFFERENT people in a relationship, and he's a bit of a player, but not severely, but she "tries to see it his way" but she doesn't see a way of this relationship working out, and although she doesn't want to let him go, it's what's best for her. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I really think I'm right on this one.

    General Comment"i remember what it feels like to know love and have it taken away"

    "except for the pain of choosing to hold to long"
