Lyrics

I knew it had to be you
Fill me with your love
When I thought all was lost
You said "come take my hand"
Take you for a drive, drivin' in my open car

The wind blowing in our hair
Living life without a care
Baby you're so real, baby so strong
I know we can't go wrong

We're drivin' in your car
We have never gone this far
Now the time has come for us
To spend the night together now

Drivin' in your car
You come straight into my heart
Soon I will be yours
And we'll spend tonight together

We're drivin' in your car
Who knew we would come this far
I can't wait for us to spend the whole
Night together now

You drive me in your car
Nothing can keep us apart
I know you and me will be
Always be forever more

Trivia

Drivin's old banner.
Drivin's unused banner.
  • Drivin' features VJ GYO's characters Mika, Yuri, and Akane in the video.
  • According to NAOKI, Drivin' was originally to be titled in Japanese and sung in Japanese to go with the other songs in 8th style he named/were sung in Japanese (蒼い衝動 and ), as well as the difficulty of writing English lyrics for his songs (a possible reference to him co-writing the lyrics to D2R earlier that year). It was through trial and error with Paula Terry that the song was finished.
    • VJ GYO also notes that the video for Drivin' was made based off the instrumental version of the song, before the lyrics were wrapped up or even the name of the song was known, possibly due to NAOKI's difficulty when working on the song.
  • DanceDanceRevolution ULTRAMIX3's website had a gameplay screenshot of Drivin', but the song is not included in the game.
  • Drivin's DanceDanceRevolution graphics were made by Masaki Sugimoto.
    • The unused Drivin' graphics are available in Masaki Sugimoto's Photobucket account [1].
  • Drivin' doesn't appear in the nonstop megamix of the DanceDanceRevolution SuperNOVA ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK album.
  • Drivin' received a Double BEGINNER chart in DanceDanceRevolution UNIVERSE.
  • Drivin' was still present in the location test of DanceDanceRevolution X, with its new foot ratings.
