about

Ride
Inspired by Winston Churchill’s quote “If you’re going through hell, keep going”, Ride is about empowerment, love and the natural world. In some ways its a commentary on the ancient Greek myth about the gods being so scared of humans that they split our souls between two people to weaken us. The point of life then is
to search to find the other half of your soul. It also features some overt guiro playing – a percussion instrument you don’t hear much of in music these days.

lyrics

Ride J.Gronow

Verse 1
There’s a king tide on your birthday that will flood the coastal plain
May the road rise up to meet you as you run to get away
And safely up on the higher ground, you’ll watch the waves roll in
You can put your arms around me and pull me closer to your skin

Chorus
Ride on Baby, Baby Ride On X 2

Verse 2
I know you were forsaken by the one you truly loved
And cold grey hearts get broken up like battle ships after the war
Don’t let the devil take your sweetness and turn it into bile
How long you going to blame yourself for what you can’t control?

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3
The space that’s here between us Is like a thunder cloud
You can feel the charge is building just waiting for a spark
Two halves of one soul searching, for the other to be whole
Sometimes it just seems pointless like four fingers on a glove

RPT Chorus
