Race you down the highway
Babe, you’re goin’ my way
She’s riding on the divider line a bit
We’ve been friends since High School
Her boyfriend treats her like a fool
She can’t decide if she wants to stay or split

Her engine’s running hotter than Hell
Emotions running hot as well
Baby, can I race you for a drink
That makes her raise an eyebrow
I’m pulling out in front now
I pass her by, and she gives me that special wink

Let me take you away from it all
Baby, I can take you to the stars for awhile
When we’re laying there and night time starts to fall

I can make you feel
I can make you feel
I can make you feel alive

Her boyfriend’s abusive
Makes her elusive
She got the GTO from her dad
Pulling over; the shoulder
She says she wants me to hold her
I show her that her life just ain’t that bad

Let me take you away from it all
Baby, I can take you to the stars for a while
When we’re laying there and night time starts to fall

I can make you feel
I can make you feel
I can make you feel alive

(Spoken) “Oh, baby
I’ve had my eye on you since the very first stop sign
Ain’t been no stopping me since”


“Let me take you away from it all”

Baby, I can take you to the stars for a while
When we’re laying there and night time’s ‘bout to fall

I can make you feel
I can make you feel
I can make you feel alive

When we’re laying there and night time starts to fall

Let me take you away from it all

Let me show you a better life

(Spoken) “Maybe I can take you away as my wife”

I can take you to the stars for awhile

Or forever

    General CommentThis is a cool song about how friend relationships can be stronger than romantic ones. Hope she dumps that zero and goes for a hero.

    My InterpretationTypical story about the girl going for the "bad boy," when the right guy was there all along.
