play Oh I swear to ya, I'll be there for ya
play This is not a drive by
play Just a shy guy looking for a two ply
play Hefty   to   my love
play When you move me everything is  
play They don't like it   me, mm way you do me
play Oh I swear to you, I'll be there for you
play This is not a drive by

play On the other side of a   spiral
play My love for you went  
play And I loved you every mile you    
play But now here you are again
play So let's   the "how you been"
play And get down to the "more than   " at last

The song is about a guy who falls in love with a one night stand,
but he is scared because he fell for her so he leaves and she then moves away.
He still loves her. Hence the 'this is not a drive by' refers to him not being done with her just because she was a one night stand
He has to prove that their one night stand was not a "drive by".
