I'm your worn in leather jacket
I'm the volume in your fucked up teenage band
A bag of smokes and a six pack
I'm the dreams you had walkin down the railroad tracks
You and me

I'm your first taste of romance
I'm your first broken heart on a saturday night
Guys like us aint got no chance
But I'm the thing that keeps you and me alive
But not forever

[Chorus:]
So take me down the road
Take me to the show
It's something to believe in
That no one else knows
But don't take me for granted

I'm the blood on your guitar
I'm that wave you caught back in 1975
I'm as strong as a thousand armies
I'm as soft as a pedal on a long stem rose
I am love

[Chorus: x2]
So take me down the road
Take me to the show
It's something to believe in
That no one else knows
But don't take me for granted
I'm with you when you're born
You can take me when you die
With all the reasons why
But don't take me for granted

No one knows
Don't take me for granted

    Dont take the little things in life for granted. Mike is describing your heart(not your physical heart, but your desires, hopes, and dreams)in the song -"i'm with you when you're born, you can take me with you when you die"

    This song to me says never give up and never think there is a tomorrow, live your life to the fullest,

    Its a hit or a miss
    an eye for an eye
    live for today . . . And dont ask why
