The Lyrics and Origins of 'Drive'

'Drive' was chosen to be the first track on our latest record 'Moodswings' because it embodied almost the entire range of emotions within itself as were expressed in long-form throughout the record itself.  Written by Will and our good friend Morgan Taylor Reid, 'Drive' became the embodiment of first love, passion, youthful mistakes, loss, anguish and reflection.  The song is almost written in past-tense, but Will and Morgan wanted to evoke a sense of lucid memory throughout, almost as though the past was still happening in a parallel reality.  'Drive' wound up being a mood-swing of its own, and we thought it was the perfect entrance into our latest work.

You can download 'Moodswings' on iTunes, Amazon and Google Play (among others) or stream it on Spotify.

Lyrics:

I can feel the rain coming down strong on you and me.
As the thunder breaks, I pull you in close and never leave.
 
Young enough, young enough to feel it,
feel the touch, that’s making us believe it,
frozen now, this moment that we’re stealing.
 
I wanna drive with you, nobody else around, to keep the dream alive.
I wanna drive with you, nothing to slow us down, out on the streets tonight.
 
Up in outer space, the stars they move like fireflies.
Let’s never leave this place, never grow old, never say goodbye.
 
Young enough, young enough to feel it,
feel the touch, that’s making us believe it,
frozen now, this moment that we’re stealing.
 
I wanna drive with you, nobody else around, to keep the dream alive.
I wanna drive with you, nothing to slow us down, out on the streets tonight.
