Life Is A Highway Lyrics

Intro

Woo
Hmm, yeah

Verse 1

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

Pre-Chorus 1

We won’t hesitate
To break down the garden gate
There’s not much time left today, yeah

Chorus

Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you’re goin’ my way
I wanna drive it all night long

Verse 2

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 Mozambique to those Memphis nights
The Khyber Pass to Vancouver’s lights
Knock me down, I’m back up again
You’re in my blood, I’m not a lonely man

Pre-Chorus 2

There’s no load I can’t hold
The roads are rough, this I know
I’ll be there when the light comes in
Just tell ’em we’re survivors

Chorus

Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long (Woo)
If you’re goin’ my way
I wanna drive it all night long (All night long)
A gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, yeah
Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long (Hmm, yeah)
If you’re goin’ my way (You’re goin’ my way)
I wanna drive it all night long (All night long)

Bridge

There was a distance between you and I (Between you and I)
A misunderstanding once
But now we look it in the eye
Ooh, yeah (Hmm, yeah)

[Instrumental Break]

Refrain

There ain’t no load that I can’t hold
The roads are rough, this I know
I’ll be there when the light comes in
Tell ’em we’re survivors

Chorus

Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long (All night long, yeah)
If you’re goin’ my way
I wanna drive it all night long (A gimme, gimme, gimme, a gimme, gimme, yeah)
Life is a highway (Life is a highway)
I wanna ride it all night long (Woo, yeah)
If you’re goin’ my way (Goin’ my way)
I wanna drive it all night long (All night long, yeah; come on, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, yeah)
Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long (Yeah, I wanna drive it all night long, baby)
If you’re goin’ my way (You’re goin’ my way)
I wanna drive it all night long (All night long)
