Charted: 62 6
  • 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
    We won't hesitate break down the garden gate
    There's not much time left today

    Life is a highway
    I want to ride it all night long
    If you're going my way
    I want to drive it all night long

    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 get back up again
    You're in my blood I'm not a lonely man

    There's no load I can't hold
    Road so rough this I know
    I'll be there when the light comes in
    Just tell 'em we're survivors

    Life is a highway
    I want to ride it all night long
    If you're going my way
    I want to drive it all night long

    Life is a highway
    I want to ride it all night long
    If you're going my way
    I want to drive it all night long

    There was a distance between you and I
    A misunderstanding once but now
    We look it in the eye

    There ain't no load I can't hold
    Road so rough this I know
    I'll be there when the light comes in
    Just tell 'em we're survivors

    Life is a highway
    I want to ride it all night long
    If you're going my way
    I want to drive it all night long

    Life is a highway
    I want to ride it all night long
    If you're going my way
    I want to drive it all night long

    Life is a highway
    I want to ride it all night long
    If you're going my way
    I want to drive it all night long Writer/s: Thomas William Cochrane
