It's too late?
Who's gonna tell you things
aren't so great?
You can't go on
Thinking nothing's wrong
Who's gonna drive you home
Who's gonna pick you up
When you fall?
Who's gonna hang it up

Drive by The Cars, classic voice and video.
Regarding the latest comment, it’s really a love song.
Sorry to hear about your husband. Looks like a sweet husband and really took care of you. Congratulations for being with him that long, that’s really a bonus to be with him. Good to hear this song gives you comfort.
Have a Happy New Year!

I believe it is a love song also. It is my husbands song to me. And yes, I am lucky because he did pay attention to my dreams. He recently died. We were married 33 years. The song is still a comfort to me.

It is about any person who has a loved one out of control; a parent, sibling or spouse thinking about all of the danger that loved one is in, both from the behavior and those with whom they associate. Does anyone have the person's best interest in mind or are they being used? When will the loved one realize that they are in this dire situation?

She is having troubles, an addicction probably- alcohol, drugs, both or whatever. He is advicing her about what to do, and telling her that although he's always been there to help her, things could change tonight.

They were at a party and they offered her a ride home but she got in the car with her drunk bf and crashed and she was wasted in the accident.

I think this song is about someone that needs to reevaluate your life. To do soul searching is difficult and he was telling her that she can do it. He will be there for her. He will drive her home tonight.

I think he's telling her its not him because in the song between verses he saying bye bye. So basically move on because he doesn't want to be with! Bummer I know someone I had thing for played this song for me and I thought it was more and it wasn't all too true.

It's about alcoholism.

This is the ultimate love song. This person will tell you how things really are and see things how they really are and it wouldn't matter because they will be there for you no matter what. My God, if I could just find someone who will pay attention to my dreams.
