From Denver to California,
By way of Mexico,
We're lost and we're finding each other,
And we may never see the west coast,
We may never see the west coast

We're taking it slow,
But for now we're 2 down and 48 to go

Missed an exit in Albuquerque,
We don't seem to mind at all,
We pull over,
The sun is burning,
And we lay down to feel the rain fall

We're taking it slow,
But for now we're 2 down and 48 to go

Desert winds blow your hair back,
Window down,
Town after town,
Where will be in half a century,
2 down and 48 to go

The sun rises in Bernardino,
Some time after 6 am,
We could take 27 up old canyon road,
Sometimes you win before you run,
Sometimes you win before,
We got 48, 48 to go
48 to go,
48, 48

Come on baby,
Come on darling,
48 to go

    He is talking about this road travel he had with his girlfriend. They wanted to travel every 50 states, but they couldn't, because they were too busy making love with each other, so they could go only 2 of them.

    The trip across the us symbolizes their relationship. Most couples that don't divorce are married for approximately 50 years, so they're 2 years down and 48 to go. Just my take
