"Driving With The Brakes On" as written by and Justin Currie....
Driving through the long night
Trying to figure who's right and who's wrong
Now the kid is gone
I sit belted up tight
She pulls on a match light glowing bronze
Steering on

And I might be more of a man
If I stopped this in its tracks and say come on
Lets go home
But she's got the wheel
I've got nothing except what I have on

When you're driving with the brakes on
When you're swimming with your boots on
It’s hard to say you love someone
And it’s hard to say you don't

Trying to keep the mood right
Trying to steer the conversation from
The thing we've done
She shuts up the ashtray
And I say it’s a long way back now huh
But she just yawns

And she's got the wheel
And I've got to deal from now on

When you're driving with the brakes on
When you're swimming with your boots on
It’s hard to say you love someone
And it’s hard to say you don't

Unless the moon falls tonight.
Unless continents collides
Nothings gonna make me
Break from her side

Cuz when you're driving with the breaks on
When you're swimming with your boots on
It’s hard to say you love someone
And it’s hard to say you don't
When you're driving with the breaks on
When you're driving with the breaks on

    My InterpretationTo me:

    This song is about a guy and girl coming back from getting an abortion. She is ok with it, and he isn't quite sure how to deal with it.
