Ride With Me. Every time I hear this song I think of a young couple I met on the road a few years back. And how they loved each other. The purest love I have ever seen. I can't recall their names for the life of me. But I suppose they're still out there. Riding a never-ending highway together. No flat tires. Never running out of gas. No real destination. Call them the breeze. And that works for me. I thought it would make a great video. Twilight. A couple in an old convertible. Hugging a coast road. Then pulling over. Building a small fire. And oh. Look at that. There’s a different sort of fire. A much bigger one. The song wasn't written for the young couple. Inspired by them. Hopefully carrying on the torch on their behalf. The moon and her dream face. She haunts. Leaves traces. Maybe real, maybe not. Hold her in high esteem … xoRJ


It’s a perfect night for a drive along the coastline
Ocean wind is warm and it really loves your hair
Tryin’ to find some happiness and concrete makes you crazy
Box yourself in when everything is just out there - -

Let’s walk the beach
I’ll show you what you mean to me
Let’s let the ocean lap our feet
Just out of reach
There’s a new plateau I’d like to see
Aw baby, say you’ll ride with me

Instill a perfect heartbeat, yeah – to everything around you
I hold the moon in high esteem, it lights you up just right
And there’s a midnight move or two I’d like to show you
Can’t make it last if we can’t shame the night

Let’s walk the beach
I’ll show you what you mean to me
Let’s let the ocean lap our feet
Just out of reach, there’s a new plateau I’d like to see
Aw baby, say you’ll ride with me

Aw baby, say you’ll ride with me

Ride with me .. say you’ll ride with me -

Don’cha wanna ride – say you wanna ride
Don’cha wanna ride - (ride with me)

We didn't get to test drive "Friday Night" the way we wanted to. Mr./Ms. Universe stepped in. Our seventh full-length release "Piece Of Your Ghost" becomes available on June 18th, 2021. I'll see what I can do about a single release or two. September sounds good. Summer's coming! Time to kick a few ghosts around ... Something in mind ... hmmm ... xoRJ ... more
