"Get on the road" as written by Richard Colburn, Gary Lightbody, Peter Buck, Scott Mccaughey, Garrett Lee, Iain Archer and T. Stewart....
The fire, the wine, the bed and you
In this crimson light I find the truth
And the truth is like a punch or two
It hits you hard it knocks you through

So I, get on the road and ride to you
I get on the road and ride to you

A kiss like a fight that neither wins
One tender payment for our sins
You are the drug that I can't quit
Your perfect chaos is a perfect fit

So I, get on the road and ride to you
I get on the road and ride to you

From broken farm to broken farm
The engine noise like an alarm
It breathes a thunder in my soul
It starts to rise through the dust bowl

So I, get on the road and ride to you
I get on the road and ride to you

The wheel, it settles in my hands
This is the measure of this man
I point the car at north, at you
My route has scarred the country through

So I, get on the road and ride to you
I get on the road and ride to you

I get on the road and ride to you
I get on the road and ride to you

    My InterpretationBasically i think this song is a love song. Its about two people in one of those relationships where the two lovers are always fighting and breaking up only to get back togther.

    I think this is from one, if not both people's points of view (the two singers - male and female) where after a huge fight they realise that this is person they are meant to be with and so set out to find them
