Music! Exploration! Romance!

So I'm taking my boyfriend on a bit of an adventuresome date that requires some fence-jumping and mysterious-place-wandering. It's about a thirty minute walk to the site, and since we'll be going in the dark, I thought it could be fun to walk there silently with a synced playlist shared between the two of us.

Any ideas for songs that might work well? Genre isn't really important, but I'm totally blanking out. I was thinking of Jackson Browne's "Bright Baby Blues" because of the line "take my hand and lead me / to the hole in your garden wall / and pull me through," but I've got nothing else. I figure about six or seven songs should get us there.

    You're welcome:

    Aqueous Transmission"

    I’m floating down a river
    Oars freed from their holes long ago
    Lying face up on the floor
    Of my vessel
    I marvel at the stars
    And feel my heart overflow

    Further down the river

    Two weeks without my lover
    I’m in this boat alone
    Floating down a river named emotion
    Will I make it back to shore?
    Or drift into the unknown

    Further down the river

    I’m building an antenna
    Transmissions will be sent
    When I am through
    Maybe we can meet again
    Further down the river
    And share what we both discovered
    Then revel in the view

    Further down the river

    I’m floating down a river

    Oh man, thanks! So many good suggestions here -- "The Unknown" is especially perfect.

    Any other additions are happily appreciated.
