PUT ME IN THE CAR |poŏt mē in ðē; kär| Written and performed by Ryan Gosling. Even though this tune was released on the internet around 2006, the recording date is still unknown. Back in 2000, Ryan's mom, Donna, wrote in an open letter that Dead Man's Bones were probably going to // 2. what does it sound like? While some people find certain Dave Matthews feel, some Jack Johnson-esque influence or some resemblance to Jason MRaz, we think that Put Me in Your Car could have been included in any album released by Aztec Camera in the 80s decade, such as Knife or Love. The song has the vibe of the tunes that Gosling wrote before joining forces with Zach Shields to give birth to Dead Man's Bones, which were part of the soundtrack of the movie Wild Neighbors
// 3. lyrics Written by Ryan Gosling.
Shadows are my friends / And the light hates my face / It hides behind the clouds / In its institute of grace
And our children warm their beds / With dreams of growing old / But deception has run rampant / And their futures have been mistold
Just put me in the car / And drive so far / Until I'm free again /
And whisper in my ear / That all these years / I've been dreaming / Then you kiss me goodnight /
And it'll be all right / It'll be all right / It'll be all right / It'll be all that I have ever asked of you
Darkness thinks I'm pretty / And the rain covets my soul / But the women think I'm ugly / They care not for hearts of gold
And freedom teaches nothing / If only to create / Lately innocence is jaded / Only preachers hate
Just put me in the car / And drive so far / Until I'm free again
And whisper in my ear / That all these years / I've been dreaming / Then you kiss me goodnight / And it'll be all right
It'll be all right / t'll be all right / It'll be all that I have ever asked of you
Just put me in the car / And drive so far / Until I'm free again/ Then you kiss me goodnight
And it'll be all right / It'll be all right / It'll be all right / It'll be all that I ever asked of you
