Life is a Highway

Life is a Highway

Lyrics

Life’s like a road that you travel on
When there’s one day here and the next day gone
Sometimes you bend and sometimes you stand
Sometimes you turn your back to the wind
There’s a world outside every darkened door
Where blues won’t haunt you anymore
Where brave are free and lovers soar
Come ride with me to the distant shore
We won’t hesitate

Life is a Highway
Life is a Highway

To break down the garden gate
There’s not much time left today

Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you’re going my way
I wanna drive it all night long
Through all these cities and all these towns
It’s in my blood, and it’s all around
I love you now as I loved you then
This is the road, and these are the hands
From Mozambique to those Memphis nights
The Khyber Pass to Vancouver’s lights
Knock me down and back up again
You’re in my blood, I’m not a lonely man
There’s no load I can’t hold
A road so rough this I know
I’ll be there when the light comes in
Tell ’em we’re survivors
Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you’re going my way
I wanna drive it all night long
Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you’re going my way
I wanna drive it all night long
There was a distance between you and me
A misunderstanding once
But now we look in the eye
There ain’t no load that I can’t hold
A road so rough this I know
I’ll be there when the light comes in
Tell ’em we’re survivors
Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you’re going my way
I wanna drive it all night long
Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you’re going my way
I wanna drive it all night long
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, yeah
Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you’re going my way
I wanna drive it all night long
