It's getting close to sundown over the Sierra Stranded on the freeway burning with desire She was on the sidewalk looking for a night light We talked about the real things And drove into the fire Headlights on the highway The desert wind is howling Rattlesnakes and romance Is filling with the rain Candy apple red dress Bleeding when she kissed me Heaven in a rag top Take away my pain [Chorus] When your chips are down When your highs are low Joyride Move across the night Like a separate wind Pulled up to a motel "Vacancy" was buzzing Pink and dirty neon Settle on the hood Wrap your arms around me Come a little closer Stumble in the twilight And fell onto the floor Loving Mona Lisa Dreaming of the free world Lipstick on the nightstand And demons at the door [Chorus] When your hopes and dreams Lose the will to go Joyride Reaching for the light Knowing we can't win There's something in the distance A glorious existence A simple celebration A place you've never been before Tell me that you wanna go Reaching for the light Knowing we can't win When your chips are down When your highs are low Joyride All your hopes and dreams All you need to know Joyride
