Ride or Die

By: Laura Alford

She’s my ride or die
And I thought we just might
Taking hairpin curves in the broad daylight
We had the droptop down, the heater on high
Cruising Big Sur
Living our best life

We like old school country and our whisky straight
Beach bonfires and staying up late
We like to travel but love being home
Big bubble baths and a favorite cologne
We can do fancy but we’re never just plain
If you know you know, no need to explain

She’s my ride or die
And I thought we just might
Hauling a huge armoire up 9 flights
We flipped that condo inside a week
But got in a fight
Hooking up the TV

Somehow a bad time with friends
Turns into good memories
Something about surviving
Clears the energy

He’s my ride or die
And I thought we just might
We drove up to Sequoia, wildfires in sight
Missed the big tree, had a knee injury
A check engine light
No A/C misery

We like old school country and our whisky straight
Beach bonfires and staying up late
We like to travel but love being home
Big bubble baths and a favorite cologne
We can do fancy but we’re never just plain
If you know you know, no need to explain
