I hear the birds on the summer breeze, I drive fast
I am alone in the night
Been tryin' hard not to get in trouble, but I
I've got a war in my mind
I just ride
Just ride, I just ride, I just ride
She isn’t just running away from the world but from herself too. “I hear the birds on the summer breeze” shows the freedom she is enjoying and during the day “I drive fast” so she is always preoccupied. “I am alone in the night” obviously means that at nights she is stuck with herself and “Been trying hard not to get into trouble, But I, Ive got a war in my mind” means that she is probably a quite wild, crazy and self-destructive person searching for herself and peace-of-mind on the road. “So, I just ride, I just ride” shows her solution to her troubles are to keep running and moving along but no matter how far she goes or how fast she goes her problems keep catching up to her.
