"The Longest Road" as written by Elisabeth Maurus and Morgan Page....
Giddy up and go
We'll go so far as we please

Giddy up and gold mine
Different place, different time
All the stars are in their prime
Pastel trailer park, stars so bright to hide the dark
All is quiet in the yard

Giddy up and gold dust, all the cars turn to rust
You've got no means for wanderlust
Pastel trailer park, stars so bright to hide the dark
All is quiet in the yard

If you are so frequently in love
If you prefer it all to me then my love
You go down the longest road to nowhere
You pull it apart and you're just left there

Giddy up and gold mine, horse dust down time
Its my life, its my time, we've been gettin' nowhere
Gold mine, different place, different time
Hold me down, Hold me down
Hope will be found, Follow me

If you are so frequently in love
If you prefer it all to me then my love
You go down the longest road to nowhere
You pull it apart and your just left there

They're waiting for it, you're waiting for it
And you're waving in it, and you're craving in it
If you fill my cup with all you must
To speak from something

If you are so frequently in love
If you prefer it all to me then my love
You go down the longest road to nowhere
You pull it apart and your just left there
You go down the longest road to nowhere
You pull it apart and your just left there.

    General CommentI think the song is about a girl explaining to a guy, that he needs to change his ways.

    I think that it's either:
    The guy and girl aren't seeing each other, and they'd like to, but the guy has many girls that he dates or see's, and the girl is explaining to him that she's OK with that, but then she's not the girl for him.

    Or, the couple are in a relationship, and the guy is cheating. The girl is either aware of it, or knew he cheated on others in the past. So in the song, she's saying to him that if cheats on her, he'll be on a road to nowhere with their relationship.

    Personally I relate it to myself a bit differently than I think intended:)
    I have many GF's, but no real serious relationships. I can't even remember many of their names. So the song speaks to me in a similar theme above, except I take the "If you are so frequently in Love" line to mean, that if I continue to have meaningless sex with short term GF's I'll remain single until I grow up, and focus on a real relationship.

    The longest road to nowhere, would be remaining to be single - by continuing to have short term relationships.

    General Commenti gist of the song that i get is that there's the one she loves, and he loves her.. but she's conserned he might stray... or that she might stray in fact, so by saying that they'll go down the longest road to knowhere its say that their love will not be, if either strays. The gold mine being their love, then she says different place, different time... basically implying that their relationship could have worked in different settings. it's beutiful , try listening to the robbie rivera mix. I'm in love with it.

    General CommentI think this song is refering to someone who is in love with someone else, who loves something else more then her (possibly an addiction of some sort, alcohol, drugs, anything really and chooses it over the one who loves him), hence the "if you prefer it all to me, then my love. You go down the longest road to nowhere".

    General Commentyou can really feel the emotion sung with the song.

    the lyrics throughout the verses are oblique which breaks up the song perfectly
    while the chorus pretty much speaks for itself.

    it's easy to picture her telling the other person, "if you are so frequent in love,
    if you prefer it all to me then my love"

    you could interpret it which ever way works best for you.

    maybe he strays and continuously falls for other girls, maybe he has some other form
    of addiction which takes precedent over her.

    she says "you've got no means to wanderlust"......which would imply she gives him no
    reason to need to wander or stray from her, but evidently he does.

    deep song, must be appreciated.

    General CommentI always thought she was telling someone she wasn't worth falling for because she'll just leave them heart broken.

    My InterpretationI think its about a girl just not for the guy, but the guy loves her so much. They broke up and the guy still loves the girl, and she wants him to move on.

    My InterpretationThe idea of what this song meant came to me when I was Sedona, Arizona. It was swirling around in my mind but I didn't get a concrete grasp on it until I was alone. That weekend had been spent doing some inappropriate things and I kept pushing the guilt back but then it hit me. This song is about chasing happiness in the wrong places.. Sleeping around, doing drugs, whatever it is that gets you off but doesn't sit true with your heart.. True love comes from God and if you don't choose His love, you're going down the longest road to nowhere. That's my interpretation and I'm posting a very personal experience and sharing it with you.

    TranslationSorry to bother you, but English is not my native language and I can't understand the last verse.

    "If you fill my cup with all you must
    To speak from something"

    Could someone rephrase that or explain what it means?

    Thanks
