Highways and Broken Hearts
by Eli Young Band



He never knew their names and never really cared,
Lyin to himself, he was never just a young kid scared,
Livin on his own with no one to hold on to,
Nowhere to go, nothin to do,
But lie awake and pray that one-day,
Someone will come his way,

[Chorus]
All he knows,
Are Highways and Broken Hearts,
Late nights and old guitars,
Wonderin where you are,
You're so far away,
[End Chorus]

His shoes are worn and tired and not at their best,
Like a gypsy never sure where he'll be goin next,
Superficial friends, and girls with glazed over eyes,
It's a good time, but just for the night,
Then off he'll go to maybe Mexico,
Then off to Colorado,

[Chorus]
All he knows are,
Highways and Broken Hearts,
Late nights and old guitars,
Wonderin where you are,
You're so far away,
[End Chorus]

(Yeah..)

Staring through the walls of that motel room,
Reflectin on his days, the route he seemed to choose,
Will good outshine the bad, can he turn this thing around,
Should he drop to his knees, just give up now,
Beggin for release in the night,
Has he gone too far to fight?

[Chorus]
All he knows are,
Highways and Broken Hearts,
Late nights and old guitars,
Wonderin where you are,
You're so far away,
[End Chorus]

You're so far away,
You're so far away,
Yeah..

(Yeah)

(Yeah)
