"Drive You Home" as written by Douglas Elwin Erickson, Shirley Ann Manson, Steve W. Marker and Bryan David Vig....
It's funny how
Even now
You still support me after all of the things that I've done
You're so good to me
Waiting patiently
And isn't it sad that you still have to ask if I care?

I never said I was perfect
But I can take you away

Walk on shells tonight
Can't do right tonight
And you can't say a word
Cause I leap down your throat
So uptight am I

I never said I was perfect
But I can drive you home

I got down on myself
Working too hard
Driving myself to death
Trying to beat out the faults in my head
What a mess I've made
Sure we all make mistakes
But they see me so large that they think I'm immune to the pain

I'm praying for a miracle
But I won't hold my breath
I never said I was perfect
But can you drive me home

    General CommentSome people react to guilt for wronging someone they care about by getting angry at that person. Almost like they resent that person for making them feel bad for their actions. It happens when you have low self esteem, and can't understand why anyone would care about you, or that you'd be deserving of affection. So when someone like that gets into a relationship with someone who is actually a good caring partner, the person with said low self esteem will always have a nagging doubt that the people who care about him/her have some alterior motive or have made a mistake and will realize how "bad" of a person they are. Thats what she's describing in this song. A person (herself) who is grateful for her husband for staying by her even though she is often detached and doubtful and even spiteful. She's saying that she's sorry, but she really does care, even though it doesn't seem like it. She's describing a fight with the chorus, that she initiated and probably didn't have a right to start. Basically, the theme is, I'm not perfect, and I'm sorry for not always giving you what you deserve, and I'm grateful.

    If you couldn't figure that out, you shouldn't be allowed to leave your house without a helmet on.
