The Cars Lyrics


Before The Cars, the members of the band began coming
together in several early forms. Ric Ocasek and Ben Orr
were the first to meet at a party in Columbus, Ohio and
they began performing as a duo, covering rock 'n roll
classics as well as performing their own material. They
refused to to the same old Top 40 routine that club owners
expected of a young band.

After deciding that Boston would be a better place to break
into the music business, Ric Ocasek and Benjamin Orr
relocated there. It was here that they met Greg Hawkes, who

Review about The Cars songs
Now It's Personal | Reviewer: Wes
    ------ About the song Drive performed by The Cars

I've heard this song most of my life. It's always been just a little sad song about a girl blithely carrying on - not even realizing she's on a dangerous path. What's worse, she's oblivious to the man who really cares for her who is watching her train wreck and wishing she would turn to him for his love. It's about his pain and frustration at knowing he could help her, but she's having too much fun to be interested in his love.

See now, I'm the guy in the story. And it is a very painful position to be in - loving somebody who is on a destructive path that she is seduced by. She breaks my heart over and over. So now this little song I've known all my life plays in my head every day. And it's comforting in a way to know that this happens to others and I don't feel so alone. That's good poetry. That's art. It's a much better song than I ever imagined.

    ------ About the song Drive performed by The Cars

This song is a sad reminder. I had a girl with which we started a relationship. She was the most intelligent female that I ever met as well as being remarkedly beautiful. She was an alcoholic, was arrested for DUI, lost her job. Drank at every opportunity. When I finally gave her the word, either me or the booze..........She said bye to me. This song says it all.

    ------ About the song Drive performed by The Cars

I think this song is very romantic and it's my story: you are hanging around with the wrong men while there is one that is - still - waiting for you and you waste your time. I like to interpret songs on my own and this song always makes me cry, probably cause I know that I am wasting my time with wrong people that don't pick me up when I fall

Great song.... | Reviewer: Don

Terry, 10/16/12, you hit it right on the head.
It's about a girl who doesn't realize she's fucking up her relationship. I've been listening to this song all day.
My girl is that girl. Spoiled, beautiful, sexy and clueless.
My Lady and I broke up.... she wants to marry but I've been her option rather than her priority. She now wants to get back together after realizing that I'm really gone if she doesn't change. She just texted me... just now. She wants to meet tomorrow. I have her stuff all boxed up... We'll see.

    ------ About the song Drive performed by The Cars

I think its about a girl who has a drug issue and she cant control it anymore and the guy is asking who's gonna do everything for you if he's not there. i'm nineteen and I love this song but I understand the lyrics. she cant go one thinking that nothing is wrong in her life cuz she dosent want to face it. its like telling a story that she uses the drugs to make her feel like nothing is wrong with her and to not the feel the emotions she feels cuz they terrible and they hurt her.

    ------ About the song Drive performed by The Cars

What are you people talking about? It is a song about a person male or female, we will assume about a female, since it is being sung by a male, but it could be either or, who is missing all the signs that the relationship is falling apart. So who is going to be there when I am gone , who is going to be there to pick you up? Who will answer the phone when you call me because I will be long gone because of your insensitivity. You can't go on thinking nothing is wrong. Who is going to drive you home tonight

    ------ About the song Drive performed by The Cars

It's a wonderful song, about someone that thinks he's on the wrong way but cant stop and cant change it, but it all might be perfectly right, you just have to see it the right way. RIP Benjamin Orr.

    ------ About the song Drive performed by The Cars

This song absolutely makes me feel indestructible, and really sad, too. It's kind of one of those songs that cut right into your heart and put you in this unexplainable mood that nothing else can (unless another great song). Love it. RIP Benjamin Orr, you talented, beautiful musician.

    ------ About the song Let's Go performed by The Cars

I love Ric Ocaseks voice, don't get me wrong, but Benjamin Orr was so good. There was so much soul in his voice. He really should have sang more of The Cars songs. Gotta love him, and this song :)
