"Enjoy the Ride" as written by Judie Tzuke, Paul Corfield Godfrey and Ross Charles Godfrey....
You shut the gates at sunset
After that you can't get out
You can see the bigger picture
Find out what it's all about

You're open to the skyline
You won't wanna go back home
In a garden full of angels
You will never be alone

But oh, the road is long
The stones that you are walking on
Have gone

With the moonlight to guide you
Feel the joy of being alive
The day that you stop running
Is the day that you arrive

And the night that you got locked in
Was the time to decide
Stop chasing shadows, just enjoy the ride

If you close the door to your house
Don't let anybody in
It's a room that's full of nothing
All that underneath your skin

Face against the window
You can't watch it fade to gray
And you'll never catch the fickle wind
If you choose to stay

But oh, the road is long
The stones that you are walking on
Have gone

With the moonlight to guide you
Feel the joy of being alive
The day that you stop running
Is the day that you arrive

And the night that you got locked in
Was the time to decide
Stop chasing shadows, just enjoy the ride
Stop chasing shadows, just enjoy the ride

With the moonlight to guide you
Feel the joy of being alive
The day that you stop running
Is the day that you arrive

And the night that you got locked in
Was the time to decide
Stop chasing shadows, just enjoy the ride

With the moonlight to guide you
Feel the joy of being alive
The day that you stop running
Is the day that you arrive

And the night that you got locked in
Was the time to decide
Stop chasing shadows, just enjoy the ride
Stop chasing shadows, just enjoy the ride
Stop chasing shadows, just enjoy the ride
Stop chasing shadows, just enjoy the ride
Stop chasing shadows, just enjoy the ride

    My InterpretationThis is the greatest song I have ever heard. The first time I listened to it, I replayed it over and over for about 2 hours. The song is very philosophical to me. I think it is all about realizing that you need to find your personal truth and live an authentic life to be Content.

    "The stones your are walking on are gone" means that the ideas you have about what in important in life are often wrong. As you grow as a person you realize that other well meaning people have tried to put you in a box and convince you to: "shut the gates at sunset" and not question the big picture they have draw for you.

    "The day that you stop running is the day that you arrive." Means that you are running from yourself. If you just stop and look within yourself, you will find your personal truth. When you do, you can stop chasing the shadows that have motivated you up to this point and find the peace and contentment within yourself that will allow you to enjoy the ride of life if you just give yourself permission to do so.

    I am a big Joseph Campbell fan and this all ties in with his concept of finding your bliss.
