"Ride (b.side)" as written by and Rick Nowels Darren Hayes....
Come on
Baby baby come on
You only know one half of me
Up until now it’s all I let you see
I used to reveal selectively
But now I’m changing
So baby come on inside
Baby get on this ride
Get closer to me
Don’t you know that
It’s time to take control
To take what’s mine
Gonna take it home
I think I’m about to fly, so here we go

Baby get on this ride with me
Baby come on sit next to me
Baby get on this ride hold on tight
Cos we've got all night
Baby get on this ride with me
I wanna feel you next to me
Baby get on this ride
Hold on tight
Buckle up right now
Baby come on

Feels like I’ve been locked up all my life
Held down denied the right to fight
Nobody else could do this right
I’m just arriving
Baby get on this side
Baby get on this ride
Get closer to me
Don’t you know that
It’s time I let you know
I got so much further that I could go
It’s time to start the show
So here we go

Baby get on this ride with me...

If you want what I want we
won’t have a problem
You see in the past I just compromised
I’ve been taking a backseat
but that’s not me no longer
I don’t feel shy, don’t want to hide,
I’m ready to fly
Now baby come on
Come on
All you my people, my people
Tell me now
Tell me
My people, my people
All you
My people my people

    General CommentThis song is a great b-side! I definately love it.
    It's I believe, a song about change. About changing because they feel it's high time, and the right thing to do to be true to themselves. Also, about just knowing that the special person in your life is up for it, fully supportive and willing to keep going with you on this ride of life. Twists, turns, dives...is this person in for the long-haul with you?

    General CommentOh I missed commenting on this one! :-O .
    It is a great b-side Miss!!. I used to love it when I first heard it. It was a time of change for me as well (2002) and so I would play this one very loud and jump around the house...it was so empowering, telling myself that I wouldn't hide anymore...So liberating...
    I think Darren was not so proud of his work on Spin (as I read it in some interviews a couple of years after), but no matter what he says, it just fitted back then. It just made me love him more. It was a song of hope, of believing in yourself (even when he then went down into TTATS). Like I said, it just made sense at the time and I loved it while it lasted :)
