  • I live by the code of the road
    Every single night of my life
    Nobody knows a single place I go
    City by city, night after night
    Been a long time on this lonely road (yeah)
    Nothing comes easy, but it's worth the fight
    If you've seen it once I've seen it twice before (yeah)
    Little by little, mile after mile
    You've been waiting for the soul of your life (yeah)
    The time is now a'come
    No hesitation, no backing down out
    So just take it away

    I live by the code of the road
    Every single night of my life
    People all around you but you're all alone
    City by city, night after night
    It's about time I take it nice and slow (yeah)
    Nothing comes easy, but it's worth the fight
    I say it all the time, but then I start to roll (yeah)
    Little by little, mile after mile
    You've been waiting for the soul of your life (yeah)
    The time is now a'come
    No hesitation, no backing down out
    So just take it away

    I live by the code of the road
    Every single night of my life
    Nobody knows a single place I go
    City by city, night after night
    Been a long time on this lonely road (yeah)
    Nothing comes easy, but it's worth the fight
    If you've seen it once I've seen it twice before (yeah)
    Little by little, mile after mile
