  • Lyrics
  • In an interview with Q magazine June 2009, the interviewer commented that the lyric "Life is just a lonely highway/I'm out here on the open road" was a rock cliché to "almost Spinal Tap proportions." Kravitz replied: "That lyric was not a pastiche, man. It came out of me naturally, just as all my lyrics do. I don't analyze songwriting, I simply write." Kravitz contemplated for a moment, then added: "And anyway, when you are on tour a lot, as I was, life is a lonely highway, and I did get lonely out there on the open road, OK?"
