Life's like a road that you travel on
When there's one day here and the next day gone
 Sometimes you bend, 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 the brave are free and lovers soar
Come ride with me to the distant shore
We won't hesitate, break down the garden gate
There's not much time left today 

Life is a highway 
I want to ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I want to 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 like I loved you then
This is the road and these are the hands 
From Tennessee to those LA nights 
The San Antone' to Vegas lights
 Knock me down get back up again 
You're in my blood I'm not a lonely man

There's no load I can't hold
Road so rough, this I know
I'll be there when the light comes in
Tell 'em we're survivors 

[Chorus: x2]

 There was a distance between you and I
A misunderstanding once but now
We look it in the eye

There's no load I can't hold
Road so rough this I know
I'll be there when the light comes in
Tell 'em we're survivors 

[Chorus: x3]
