But we're both a long way from home
We got the windows down, the radio's on, always
Things change.. people change
They’re a long way from home because they’re on a car trip with the windows down and the radio on, and it’s apparent in the first verse that they like listening to music: it is what brings them closer together.
He’s a long way from home, literally and metaphorically, both of them are travelling and everything around them is changing. Frank is aware of this but also realizes that music is the one constant through this change.
This could be talking about Frank’s first time in LA: he was in the car with his girlfriend far away from his home in New Orleans.
The line “We got the windows down, the radio’s on” is heavily sampled and used as the hook for Wiz Khalifa’s Taylor Allderdice track, “The Cruise”.
