C Em
There's no empty seat in this car
There's no justification for cars
No justification for so many cars
No justification for two cars
There's no combination of words
Am G
I can drive and while you write a postcard
I can drive and you can write a postcard
We can be travel together and go far
I could buy gas with my credit card
That we could drive to the courtyard
I could put on the back of a postcard
F C/E
One uke player and one can sing
One uke player and one is can sing
Less gas will help us sing
No song that I could sing
Dm G
I'll rideshare to win your heart,
But I can try for your heart,
C Em Am G
our green dreams, are made of real things
our earth, she's made out of real things
our dreams, and they are made out of real things
F C/E
like a forest and coral reef
like a cloth sack of vegetable seeds
like a shoe box of photographs
Dm G
with a little garden loving
with sepia-toned loving
C Em
Love is the answer
Love is the answer
Am G
at least for a lot of the questions on this earth, like
at least for most of the questions in my heart, like
F C/E Dm
Why are there four seats here? And who else wants to go?
Why are the fires here? And who else might be want to go?
Why not stay here? And do need gas to go?
Why are we here? And where do we go?
G
Having fun with less gas is not so hard?
And how come it's so hard?
C Em
Cuz extinction/ dieing ain't easy and
Cuz extinction/ dieing ain't easy and
It's not always easy and
Am G
let’s not leave this planet grieving
sometimes life can be deceiving
F C/E Am G

Yeah so much better when we're together

[Vr] C
Physics, Wheels and ecology
Laws of physics and momentum
The physics and momentum
And all of these moments
Em Am G
just might be in my green dreams tonight,
just might find their way into my dreams tonight,
just might find their way into my dreams tonight,
F C/E
so when I awake and I have to go
But I know that they’ll be gone
Dm G
and the morning light sings
when the morning light sings
C Em
the rideshare thing
and brings new things
Am G
for tomorrow night you see
for tomorrow night you see
F C/E
that they’ll be gone too,
that they’ll be gone too,
Dm G
many things I don't have to do
too many things I have to do
C Em
But if all of these dreams might find their way
But if all of these dreams might find their way
Am G
into my day to day scene
into my day to day scene
F C/E
I'd be under the impression
I'd be under the impression
Dm G
I was somewhere in between
I was somewhere in between
C
One plus two,
With only two,
Em
Earth and me and you,
Just me and you,
Am G
So many sweet eco things we can do
Not so many things we got to do
F C/E
and places we could be
or places we got to be
Dm G
We'll sit beneath some kind of tree, now,
We'll sit beneath the mango tree, now,

[Ch] F G
Mmmm, It's always better to ride together
Mmmm, It's always better when we're together
F G
Yeah we can see the stars when we ride together
Yeah we'll look at the stars and we're together
F G
Well, it's always better to ride together
Well, it's always better when we're together

[Br]Dm G
I believe in ecology
I believe in memories
Dm G
life is so happy with no empty car seat
they look so, so pretty when I sleep
Dm G
so now, and when we I wake up,
Hey now, and when I wake up,
Dm G
you look so pretty riding next to me
you look so pretty sleeping next to me

F G
There is never enough time,
But there is not enough time,
F G
But no traveling song I would sing
But no traveling song I would sing
There is no, no song I could sing
Dm G
would have me riding alone in a one car I must say
would have me riding alone in a one car I must say
and there is no combination of words I could say
F G
our future lives still say one thing
our future will still say one thing
but I will still tell you one thing
Dm
Better to ride together
We're Better together
