  • (Woo)

    Sunset through a windshield, I can see it now
    Like a picture in a frame (picture in a frame), oh
    Blue jeans and t-shirts, who we were
    We wore it like a name (like a name)
    I wish I could go back to those days

    When the town was the whole world
    And love was the girl next door
    Soundtrack was a song in the dark
    I miss those days when our dreams were there for chasin'
    But time was better wasted
    We were summer young and livin' for a Friday
    And freedom was a highway (highway) (oh)
    Freedom was a highway (highway) (oh)

    Barbwire on a fence-posts with a cross-wind
    On a road no one was on (no one was on), yeah, yeah, yeah (yeah, yeah)
    Five-deep with our hands up, just singin' along to a hip-hop song
    I wish I could rewind and replay

    When the town was the whole world
    And love was the girl next door
    Soundtrack was a song in the dark
    I miss those days when our dreams were there for chasin'
    But time was better wasted
    We were summer young and livin' for a Friday
    And freedom was a highway (highway)
    Freedom was a highway

    When you're seventeen and drivin'
    You don't think about the road runnin' out (road runnin' out)
    No, no, no, no
    You just keep your eyes on that horizon
    'Cause you're wrapped up in now (ooh-ooh)

    Hey, ooh, yeah
    Ooh, yeah, woo

    I wish I could go back to those days
    When the town was the whole world
    And love was the girl next door
    Soundtrack was a song in the dark
    I miss those days when our dreams were there for chasin'
    But time was better wasted
    We were summer young and livin' for a Friday
    And freedom was a highway (freedom was a highway)
    Freedom was a highway, baby, yeah
    Freedom was a highway
    Freedom was a highway
    Freedom was a highway (oh) Writer/s: Ash Bowers, Jimmie Allen, Matt Rogers
