i traveled around the southwest, sleeping in the forests, deserts, and mountains with my girlfriend- cooking, working and writing. after coming home to help on my father's farm, this tune slipped out almost completely! it took me a year to understand the actual meaning, i hope you hear the struggle too.

lyrics

On the back roads we were driving and I was talking
We were going somewhere special for the day
I love to do that, when we were happy it seemed to hide away the pain
Looking back now, I see your sorrow and what took you far away

Here’s some love, here’s some hope
Oh, riding roads
Oh, riding roads

In the driveway you were crying on the steering wheel
And I was trying to find that something that burned in you
Is it your dad, is it your past is it all my fault
Well, just know that you’re exactly perfect and you’re on the right road

Here’s some love, here’s some hope
Oh, riding roads
Oh, riding roads

Riding on the back roads sets you free, oh be free, yes be free
From all your troubles just be free, oh be free, yes be free
From all your sorrow just be free, oh be free, yes be free
Riding on the back roads sets you free

When the sun shines and the rain leaves, you can lean out the window
Let the wind blow all your soul home and your eyes can smile
Don’t ask what happened just say nothing and you’ll realize
That this is perfect we’re the lucky ones and we’re on the right road

Here’s some love, here’s some hope
Oh, riding roads
Oh, riding roads
