Take Me For A Ride

TAKE ME FOR A RIDE

The valley below us
Gleams like a thousand jewels
Diamonds and rubies
Emeralds and pearls

We roll down the windows
A warm breeze rushes through
Like yesterday’s memories
Of time spent with you

Take me for a ride
The way you used to do
Our love’s just over the horizon
And out in the blue
Take me for a ride
Take me back when
It all came so easily
We thought it never would end

The hum of the engine
As you take every turn
Some things you are born with
Some you must learn

There’s a rhyme and a reason
Why things turn out like they do
This late in the season
I find myself here with you.

Take me for a ride
The way you used to do
Our love’s just over the horizon
And out in the blue
Take me for a ride
Take me back when
It all came so easily
We thought it never would end

Now we sit at the crossroads
Moon waning, it’s getting late
Don’t look back, dear
Ignore the rain
Put your hands on the wheel
Keep your eyes straight ahead
Let the tires squeal
We’ll sleep when we’re dead

Take me for a ride
The way you used to do
Our love’s just over the horizon
And out in the blue
Take me for a ride
Take me back when
It all came so easily
We thought it never would end
We thought it never would end
