"Variations" as written by and Joshua Jon Pyke....
Well it won’t hurt nobody if they don’t know
No, it won’t hurt nobody if they don’t know
We could see it burning in the rear view mirror
But we can’t stop now
We turned the radio on

And in later conversations
We’ll never mention car rides

So don’t call my lover from your telephone
Don’t call my lover from your telephone
I don’t believe in the last lines of defence
So don’t call my lover from your telephone

And in later conversations
We’ll never mention talking at all

If it’s all a matter of timing
We’re not always happy to find out
We’re all variations of one another

Well it won’t hurt nobody if they don’t know
No, it won’t hurt nobody if they don’t know
We could see it burning in the rear view mirror
But it won’t hurt your daddy
If you don’t go home

    Song MeaningI love this song, in contrast to almost all of Josh's other songs, this isn't really about the words but more the sound of the melody. Not to say the others aren't all awesome though!

    Well it won�t hurt nobody if they don�t know
    No, it won�t hurt nobody if they don�t know
    We could see it burning in the rear view mirror
    But we can�t stop now
    We turned the radio on

    It's almost like they're careless drivers and they've hit something on the road, they see it and think it's too late to stop so they turn the radio on to ditract themselves from the scene and pretend it never happened.

    And in later conversations
    We�ll never mention car rides

    It never happened!

    The rest is hard to decipher for me. But still I think it's deeper than my interpretation!
