TRAIN


Drive By Lyrics

On the other side of a street I knew
Stood a girl that looked like you
I guess thats deja vu
But I thought this can't be true
Cause you moved to west L.A or New York or Santa Fe
Or where ever to get away from me
Oh but that one night
Was more than just right
I didn't leave you cause I was all through
Oh I was overwhelmed, and frankly scared as hell
Because I really fell for you
Oh I swear to you
I'll be there for you
This is not a drive by
Just a shy guy looking for a two ply
Hefty bag to hold my love
When you move me everything is groovy
They don't like it sue me
either way you do me
Oh I swear to you
I'll be there for you
This is not a drive by
On the upside of a downward spiral
My love for you went viral
And I loved you every mile you drove away
But now here you are again
So let's skip the "how you been"And
get down to the "more than friends" at last
Oh but that one night
Is still the highlight
I didn't need you until I came to

and I was overwhelmed, and frankly scared as hell
Because I really fell for you
Oh I swear to you
I'll be there for you
This is not a drive by
Just a shy guy looking for a two ply
Hefty bag to hold my love
When you move me everything is groovy
They don't like it sue me
either way you do me
Oh I swear to you
I'll be there for you
This is not a drive by
Please believe that when I leave
There's nothing up my sleeve but love for you
And a little time to get my head together too
On the other side of a street I knew
Stood a girl that looked like you
I guess thats deja vu
But I thought this can't be true
Cause
Oh I swear to you
I'll be there for you
This is not a drive by
Just a shy guy looking for a two ply
Hefty bag to hold my love
When you move me everything is groovy
They don't like it sue me
either way you do me
Oh I swear to you
I'll be there for you
This is not a drive by

i love this song and itis my favorite one by TRAIN. personally, my take on the meaning is i see a couple who were gonna have casual sex and leave their feelings out of it, but... ironically, they fell...whoops!!! i like the way he tries to explain his feelings and actions to her...i believe he is sincere lol --i would getdown to being more than friends with him again-- rightnow i am a writer my purpose in life is to make a difference. my goal as a writer is to move up to the next level which is to be an author... the difference? me working up the nerve to let it go while at the same time being brave and self-confident enough to publish my works... it is no easy task to attempt to describe 'love' when we feel it and i think DriveBy is TRAIN's
magnum opus...although MeetVirginia&DropsofJupiter are divine too...that is just my(one person's) opinion...i am an optimist however, i still have excellent taste
and the message he is sending? i can relate and identify to experiencing those
same side-effects--unexpectedly and unintentionally-- with a friend(the cause)as
well as the descriptive feelings he is sharing with all of humanity...he was
unprotected(vulnerable/caught off guard/caught with his pants down)and wearing
his heart on his sleeve...he straightup admits it(nothing up my sleeve but love) the
'very good' kind of love does 'throe' and/or knock the majority of us off balance
love will neither go out of style nor become obsolete...times change people do not. i cannot pinpoint any ambiguity in the the meaning of these lyrics

There are always gonna be haters but quit it with the killer comments imagine how they feel how would you like it if they said it to YOU.

He's clearly a serial killer who wants to dispose of her in a trash bag, he's just looking for one strong enough. Undeniably catchy, but with goofy and insincere lyrics.

Those who criticise this song as if they are capable to make one just as good as this one, how about you try make one song, and we'll see who's the joke. Making a song is not an easy thing. Respect.
