"Joyride" as written by and Kristen Barry....
Saturday I jotted some words I thought
All about a girl that I thought I loved
Told the story of what we did and what went wrong
You've heard it all before it's the same old shit

So I won't bore you with all the details
I'm sure you can listen between the lines
I screwed her and she screwed me
But we never once has sex
All we ever have is too much time

Love is just a joyride
Drink a lot of beer and climb inside
Lay your foot down on the gas
Leave it there until you crash

Love is just a joyride
Drink a lot of beer and climb inside
Lay your foot down on the gas
Leave it there until you crash

This part of the song is called the second verse
Sounds just like the first but with different words
It only has three chords and they are A and E and D
They are A and E and D
Then it goes to D minor, D, uh, A, E, D

Love is just a joyride
Drink a lot of beer and climb inside
Lay your foot down on the gas
Leave it there until you crash

Love is just a joyride
Drink a lot of beer and climb inside
Lay your foot down on the gas
Leave it there until you crash

    General CommentLove is awesome, but even if you live to be 100 and your partner dies, it is eventually going to end. Alot of people get hurt by love and get "wise" thinking that they wont ever allow themselves to feel, so that they wont get hurt like that again.

    This song tells people to love fearlessly (not carelessly) and to enjoy the ride before the crash... dont spend so much time worrying about the crash...enjoy the ride.
