I know a place
Down past an old shack
On a road that goes to nowhere
Ain't nobody coming back
We can go there tonight
We can talk until dawn
Or maybe something else
I'll leave the radio on

There's no one to hear
You might as well scream
They never woke up
From the American dream
And they don't understand
What they don't see
And they look through you
And they look past me
Oh, you and I dancing slow
And we got nowhere to go

Past the Wal-Mart and the prison
Down by the old V.A.
Just my jeans and my t-shirt
And my blue Chevrolet
It's Saturday night
Feels like everything's wrong
I've got some strawberry wine
I want to get you alone

Down by the muddy water
Of the mighty Mo
In an old abandoned box car
Will I ever know
Dance with me forever
This moment is divine
I'm so close to heaven
This hell is not mine
This hell is not mine

    Song MeaningI agree with youreyes, being about a gay relationship, or more generally an otherwise scorned relationship. But it appears that the narrator does not know if the other person has the same feelings towards her. In the first verse she says that they can talk until dawn, or maybe more if it ends up that way. In the second verse, it is as if she wants to use the wine to seduce the other. It seems to me that she does not know if this other person is gay or straight. The pain she is feeling is twofold: not knowing if this person is gay or straight; and if she is gay, then not knowing if the love is mutual.

    As musiclover26 points out, "nowhere to go" could refer to the general lack of things to do of small town life, but I think it is much more... in small towns everyone knows each other, there is likely a greater need to remain in the closet.

    And yes... it's a great song.
