    If life is a road, and then she is my ride.

    I saw this sentence in a song, "If life is a road, and then she is my ride.", but I think "If life were a road, and then she would be my ride." is grammatically more correct or the first sentence is okay to use in daily conversations?

    Thank you so much as usual and have a good day.

    PS. How about "If life was /were a road, and then she were my ride."?

    or theIs the first sentence is okay to use in daily conversation? I can't imagine anybody using it in daily conversation.
    PS. How about "If life was /were a road, and then she were my ride"? No. Forget that.

    Re: If life is a road, and then she is my ride.

    Incidentally, for what it's worth, it seems to me to be either patronising or offensive - depending on how you interpret 'ride'.
