Everything is right in the world when you are in the driver’s seat
When you are sitting next to me

Both our eyes on the road
Both our sights set on home

Time stops when I am next to you
When you are in control
As I look out the window at all the lights and all the darkness, too
All the things you’ve helped me through

Through the years the stations and songs change
But the space between us remains the same
Your music reigns from it’s throne on high
Tell us why and takes us away

New York City nights
Island times
State by state
In the home of the brave

In the backseat
Our friends they come and go
But years with you
With you I know that

Everything is right in the world when you are in the driver’s seat
When you are sitting next to me

We talk, we drive
In silence we do ride
And sometimes share a smile
When you move your hands to the beat
Of my favorite song

Everything is right in the world when you are in the driver’s seat
When you are sitting next to me

Once I learned to drive
But I like it more
When you are in the front
And I am on the right

I let you take the wheel
I let you make the turns
Let you keep me safe
From the dangers of this world

Let you choose the music
As we cruise the paths
That lead us home
Take me home

Everything is right in the world when you are in the driver’s seat
