Lost Highway Lyrics

1. Lost Highway (4:14)
In my rearview mirror
My life is getting clearer
The sunset sighs and slowly disappears
These trinkets once were treasure
Life changes like the weather
You grow up, grow old or hit the road 'round here
So I drive, watching white lines passing by
With my plastic dashboard Jesus, waiting there to greet us

Hey, hey, I finally found my way
Say goodbye to yesterday
Hit the gas there ain't no brakes on the lost highway
Yeah I'm busting loose, I'm letting go
Out on this open road
It's independence day on this lost highway

I don't know where I'm going
But I know where I've been
Now I'm afraid of going back again
So I drive, years and miles are flying by
And waiting there to great us
Is my plastic dashboard Jesus

Oh patron saint of lonely souls
To tell this boy which way to go
Guide the car, you got the keys
Farewell to mediocrity
Kicking off the cruise-control
And turning up the radio
Got just enough religion
And a half tank of gas come on, let's go

I finally found my way
Say goodbye to yesterday
Hit the gas there ain't no brakes on the lost highway
Yeah I'm busting loose, I'm letting go
Out on this open road
It's independence day on this lost highway
2. Summertime (3:18)
Feels something like summertime
Top down ain't nothing but time
Radio's on and you're by my side
Feels something like summertime

These days life goes like this
Wake up, check that off of some list
Gotta be a little something more than this
at the bottom of my coffee cup
I keep a postcard in the back of my mind
White sand, sunshine
And you're shining like a brand new dime
That's keeping me from giving up
Thinking like I had enough

You make me feel something like summertime
Top down ain't nothing but time
Radio's on and you're by my side
Feels something like summertime
Like that first slow dance and that first long kiss
There ain't nothing baby better then this
It's like a beach blanket and a bottle of wine
It feels something like summertime
Summertime

I was a warm breeze with a cool tan
Life mapped out on the back of my hand
When I was laughing I was making plans
But I didn't laugh when I found you
If there's a heaven baby you're the proof

You make me feel something like summertime
Top down ain't nothing but time
Radio's on and you're by my side
Feels something like summertime
Like that first slow dance and that first long kiss
There ain't nothing baby better then this
It's like a beach blanket and a bottle of wine
It feels something like summertime
Summertime

[Solo]

Feel something like summertime
Top down ain't nothing but time
Radio's on for me and my valentine
Like that first slow dance and that first long kiss
There ain't nothing baby better then this
It's like a beach blanket and a bottle of wine (yeah)
Feels something like summertime
Top down ain't nothing but time
Radio's on and you're by my side,
Feels something like summertime
Just like summer time
Summertime
Something like summertime
3. (You Want to) Make A Memory (4:37)
Hello again, it’s you and me
Kinda always like it used to be
Sippin' wine, killing time
Trying to solve life’s mysteries.
How’s your life, it’s been a while
God it’s good to see you smile
I see you reaching for your keys
Looking for a reason not to leave.

If you don’t know if you should stay
If you don’t say what’s on your mind
Baby just, breathe there’s no where else tonight we should be-
You wanna make a memory.

I dug up this old photograph
Look at all that hair we had
It’s bittersweet to hear you laugh
Your phone is ringing, I don’t wanna ask.

If you go now, I’ll understand
If you stay, hey, I got a plan
You wanna make a memory
You wanna steal a piece of time
You could sing a melody to me
And I could write a couple lines
You wanna make a memory.

If you don’t know if you should stay
And you don’t say what’s on your mind
Baby just, breathe there’s no where else tonight we should be-
You wanna make a memory
You wanna steal a piece of time
You could sing a melody to me
And I could write a couple lines
You wanna make a memory
You wanna make a memory
4. Whole Lot of Leaving (4:17)
It's pretty cold for late September
And autumn wind is creepin' in
The summer sun packed up it's long gone
There's a whole lot of leavin' goin' on

Yeah!

I bet it's warm in California
I think it's time to hit the road
I just might call that plain of gypsies
Whose searching for our pot of gold

Seems like lately there's a whole lot of leavin' goin' on

I close my eyes and picture your hand in mine
I still hear your voice that takes me back to that time
Where I can find a reason to be strong
Seems like lately there's a whole lot of leavin' goin' on

Close the window draw the curtains
You ain't the only one here hurt
No one's right no one's wrong

Lately there's a whole lot of leavin' goin' on

I close my eyes and picture your hand in mine
I still hear your voice that takes me back to that time
Where I can find a reason to be strong
Seems like lately there's a whole lot of leavin' goin' on

You used to live to say you love me
Now you got one foot of the door
It's then you turn around and ask me
Do we got it anymore

I close my eyes and picture your hand in mine
I still hear your voice that takes me back to that time
Where I need find a reason to be strong

I close my eyes and picture your hand in mine
Yeah I hold the line you'll never hear me say goodbye
So pretty thing let the years be strong
Seems like lately there's a whole lot of leavin' goin' on

I'll come back for you baby
5. We Got It Going On (4:13)
Is there anybody out there looking for a party? Yeah!!
Shake your money maker, baby smoke it if you got it.
We just wanna have some fun if you don't wanna kiss this
Everybody raise your hands come on I need a witness.

We Got It Goin' On
We'll be banging and singing just like the rolling stones
We're gonna shake up your sole, we're gonna rattle your bones
'Cause We Got It Goin' On.
Ah ha ha. Ah ha ha. Yeah Yeah. Ah ha.

You got a ticket to kick it, I wanna hear you scream now.
'Cause tonight you got the right to let your hair down.
Everybody's getting down, we're getting down to business
Insane, freak train, you don't wanna miss this.

We Got It Goin' On
We'll be banging and singing just like the rolling stones
We're gonna shake up your sole, we're gonna rattle your bones
'Cause We Got It Goin' On.
Ah ha ha. Ah ha ha. Hey Yeah. Ah ha.
Ah ha ha. Ah ha ha. Hey Yeah. Ah ha.

[voice over]
How old in the back? And now a public service announcement
From my country cousin, Big Kenny, talk to the people.

[voice over by Big Kenny]
Brothers and sisters, we're here to come together as one
And love everybody.....

[voice over]
Can I get an AMEN now?

[Crowd]
AMEN!

[guitar solo]

We Got It Goin' On
We Got It Goin' On
We Got It Goin' On
We'll be banging and singing just like the rolling stones
We're gonna shake up your sole, we're gonna rattle your bones
'Cause We Got It Goin' On.

Gettin' down with Big and Rich and Richie, and Jon
Just banging and singing, why don't you hop on along.
'Cause We Got It Goin' On.
Ah ha ha. Ah ha ha. Hey Yeah. Ah ha.
Ah ha ha. Ah ha ha. Hey Yeah. Ah ha.

We got it, we got it, we got it goin' on.
We got it, we got it, we got it goin' on......
6. Any Other Day (4:03)
Alarm clock rings, it's 6:45,
Must have hit that snooze button least 3 times,
Wishing this morning was still last night,
On any other day, just might wanna die.

Traffics backed up 20 miles to the east,
Must have hit every damn red light on the street,
Weatherman says "It's gonna rain for a week"
Hey, what can you do?

[CHORUS:]
On any other day, I'd be blue eyes cryin',
I could tell the world, 'At least I'm tryin',
The clouds are breakin',
The sun is shinin' new for me and you.
On any other day, I would just go crazy,
the grace is knowing that you're gonna save me,
Baby luck and love,
Will pull us through?
On any other day
Yeah, Yeah!

On any other day, I might just stay in bed
Sit down in a sea of blankets
Pull them up over my head
Get your papers in the morning

Just to get a little edge

Then maybe just give up in time to do it all again
Hey, I like where this is going
Yeah, 'cause I know where it's been

[CHORUS]

[SOLO]

Alarm clock rings, it's 6:45,
I like waking up with you on my mind
Knowing that you're saving me
One more time.

On any other day, I would just go crazy,
the grace is knowing that you're gonna save me,
Baby luck and love,
Will pull us through?
On any other day
Yeah, Yeah!
7. Seat Next to You (4:23)
Long slow drive down an old dirt road
You've got your hand out the window, listening to the radio
That's where I wanna be...

On an old park bench in the middle of December
Cold hard rain fallin', can't find no cover
That would be alright with me...

Hard days, good times, blue skies, dark nights
Baby, I want you to take me ... wherever you're going to
Maybe say that you'll save me ... a seat next to you

In the corner booth of a downtown bar, with your head on my shoulder
Smokin' on a cheap cigar...that would be alright with me
In the back row of a movie or a cross-town train
I wanna hear your voice whispering my name...that's where I wanna be

Hard days, good times, blue skies, dark nights

Baby, say that you'll take me ... wherever you're going to
Maybe say that you'll save me ... a seat next to you

Life is like a ferris wheel, spinnin' around
When you get to the top it's hard to look down
Just hang on ... we'll make it through
Save me ... a seat next to you

When you get to the gates and the angels sing
Go to that place where the church bells ring
You know I'll come runnin' ... runnin' to find you

Baby, say that you'll take me ... wherever you're going to
Maybe I want you to save me ... a seat next to you
A seat next to you
A seat ... next to you
A seat ... next to you
8. Everybody's Broken (4:13)
Welcome to the party
Come on in and disappear
You're feeling like a stranger
But all your friends are here
Little lines and cracks
Around your eyes and mouth
Something's trying to get in
Something's trying to get out

It's ok, to be a little broken
Everybody's broken, in this life
It's ok, to feel a little broken
Everybody's broken, your alright
It's just life

Step into the deep end
Make yourself at home
When you wonder why your breathing
Know your not alone
It's so hard to believe
It's easier to doubt
You're trying to hold in
But your dying to scream out

It's ok to be a little broken
Everybody's broken

In this life
It's ok to feel a little broken
Everybody's broken, your alright
It's alright, it's just life

[Solo]

Take a look around
Tell me what you see
Is who you think you are
Who you want to be

It's ok, to be a little broken
Everybody's broken, in this life
It's ok, to feel a little broken
Everybody's broken, your alright
Just keep on going
Eyes wide open
Everybody's broken
Everybody's broken
Everybody's broken
Everybody's broken
Everybody's broken
Everybody's broken
Yeah
9. Stranger (Feat. LeAnn Rimes) (4:44)
It might be hard to be lovers
But it's harder to be friends
Baby, pull down the covers
It's time you let me in
Maybe light a couple candles
I'll just go ahead and lock the door
If you just talk to me baby
Till we ain't strangers anymore

Lay your head on my pillow
I sit beside you on the bed
Don't you think its time we say
Some things we haven't said
It ain't too late to get back to that place
Back to where, we thought it was before
Why don't you look at me
Till we ain't strangers anymore

Sometimes it's hard to love me
Sometimes it's hard to love you too
I know it's hard believing
That love can pull us through
It would be so easy
To live your life

With one foot out the door
Just hold me baby
Till we ain't strangers anymore

[Solo]

It's hard to find forgiveness
When we just turn out the light
It's hard to say you're sorry
When you can't tell wrong from right
It would be so easy
To spend your whole damn life
Just keeping score
So let's get down to it baby
There ain't no need to lie

Tell me who you think you see
When you look into my eyes
Lets put our two hearts back together
And we'll leave the broken pieces on the floor
Make love with me baby
Till we ain't strangers anymore

We're not strangers anymore
We're not strangers
We're not strangers anymore
10. The Last Night (3:33)
These days, its hard to have a heart
It doesn't matter where you come from, or who you think you are
These days, it's hard just fitting in
Why does someone have to lose, for someone else to win
We're all looking for forgiveness, and someone we can trust
You can wrap your arms around the world
It all comes down to us

This is the last night, you'll have to be alone
I'll be standing right beside you, you can't make it on your own
So walk with me, please, help me to be strong
I'll be the shoulder you can lean on, when everybody's gone
This is the last night, you'll have to be alone

I know, you, heard it all before

There's nothing worst than living less
When you yearn for something more
Makes no sense, its hard to understand
When there's something that should fill you up
Keeps slipping through your hands

We're all looking for answers
We're all down here on our knees
All anybody really wants, is something to believe
Enough is enough, I can't take any more
But I'm standing on your front porch
Kicking down your door
This is the last night
This is the last night
11. One Step Closer (3:37)
I've seen the heart of darkness
Let's just say I crossed over that line
Held hands with the hopeless
In too deep on that ride
Went around one more time
When you're standing on the edge
You don't look down
Till you're ready and willing to fly
Now I'm one step closer
With my arms open wide
I'm one step closer
And I'm willing to try this time
I hitched a ride with forgiveness
In that river of emotion
I went down a third time
I spent the night with the living
Took a chance looked inside
Didn't know who I'd find
Standing on the corner of hello and goodbye
All alone it's there I made up my mind
I'm one step closer
With my arms open wide
I'm one step closer
And I'm willing and to try
I'm sick of giving up
With a little luck
I'm gonna get out of here
When you're standing on the edge
You don't look down
Till you're ready and willing to fly
Now I'm one step closer
With my arms open wide
I'm one step closer
And I'm willing to try
I'm one step closer
I'm one step closer
12. I Love This Town (4:38)
I always knew, that I'd like this place
You don't have to look too far, to find a friendly face
I feel alive when I'm walkin' on the street
I feel the heart of the city poundin' underneath my feet

[CHORUS]
Yeah let the world keep spinning round 'n' round
This is where it's goin' down, down, down
That's why I, love this town
That's why I, keep co-min' round

Say hey (say hey) say yeah (say yeah)
You make me feel at home some how, right, now
That's why I, love this town

I've got some good friends here, I might have broke a heart or two
It's gettin' loud over there, they boys must have had a few
And hey the cop on the corner, he knows everybody's name
And a kid with a dream singin' for some spare loose change

[CHORUS]
Yeah let the world keep spinning round 'n' round
This is where it's goin' down, down, down
That's why I, love this town
That's why I, keep co-min' round

Say hey (say hey) say yeah (say yeah)
You make me feel at home some how, right, now

That's why I, love this town

[GUITAR SOLO]

There's shoutin' from the rooftops
Dancin' on the bars
Hangin' out the window
Drivin' in their famous cars
You want it? You got it
You ready? I'm on it
Come on now, here we go again....

That's why I, love this town
That's why I, love this town

No matter where you're from, tonight you're from right here
This is where it all goes down, down, down
That's why I, love this town

[REPEAT x3]
Say hey (say hey) say yeah (say yeah)
I love this town
[END REPEAT]

Say hey (say hey) say yeah (say yeah)
I loove this town
