The narrator has just been through a breakup, but keeps imaging him and his ex in his car like they did back when they were together. Brilliant lines like "driving home tonight, catchin' all the red lights, that's alright 'cause I, don't wanna be alone" add another dimension to it. The production is definitely poppier than a lot of Urban's material but the signature banjo keeps it remotely country, and the radio edited piano intro is absolutely fantastic and matches up very well with the storyline.
Likewise, he adds conviction and somberness to the lyrics to keep them feeling genuine, and when Keith lets it rip on the line "you got your lips on mine, it's gasoline on fire" it sends chills up your spine.
"Somewhere In My Car" may take Urban in a different direction in terms of sound, but in this case it's a good thing. It's a sterling effort.
