Lyrics

I feel the wind runnin' through my hair
Top down, the sun's gonna lead us there
Ray Bans and this '64's all we need

Don't let your head get in the way
Just let your heart be wild and free
Open the door, jump in, and turn the key

I live my life out on the edge
Yeah, I don't stop just 'cause it's red
Let's push this thing, see what we get

This black pavement, these yellow lines
Are pulling us into the night
I feel my temperature rise

Ride, ride, ooh
Ride, ride, ooh
Ride, ride, ooh
Ride, ride, yeah
We gon' ride

(Instrumental)

I used to sit inside my room
Dreamin' of things that I could do
Too scared to put my hands upon the wheel, oh

Now I'm with you and can't look back
It's such a rush when we're moving fast
I can't deny the way you make me feel, whoa

I live my life out on the edge
Yeah, I don't stop just 'cause it's red
Let's push this thing, see what we get

This black pavement, these yellow lines
Are pulling us into the night
I feel my temperature rise

Ride, ride, ooh
Ride, ride, ooh
Ride, ride, ooh
Ride, ride, yeah
We gon' ride

Ride, ride, ride
Pedal to the floor
Ride, ride, ride
What'ca waitin' for?
Ride, ride, ride (Ride, ride, ride)
Petal to the floor (Petal to the floor)
Ride, ride ride (Ride, ride, ride)
What'ca waitin' for?

Ride, ride
Ride, ride
Ride, ride
Ride, ride
Yeah, we gon' ride

(Instrumental)

I live my live out on the edge
Yeah, I don't stop just 'cause it's red
Let's push this thing, see what we get

Ride, ride, ooh
Ride, ride, ooh
Ride, ride, ooh
Ride, ride, yeah
We gon'

Ride, ride, ride (ride, ride)
We gon' ride (ride, ride)
Yeah we gon' ride, ride, ride (ride, ride)
Yeah we gon' ride (ride, ride)
Yeah we gon' ride
