"For the Love of the Road"

Strange afternoons
found myself in a place so far from home
where no one knew
what the hell
slow'n down would do
at the crest of the tallest hill
began to wonder
what it's like to settle here

So here I go
for the love
of the road

If dreams cracked the sky
don't want no villain
comin' round to ask
where all this goes
tell him seas, with the breeze, through lightning
cursing up the road
another traveler
livin' track by track like he
doesn't know how far to go
Says, "I'm bored, in search for more"

So here I go
for the love
of the road

Hard was the rain
a howl'n down
how quick these highways change
racing minds
Weather's no good to me now

Here I go
for the love
of the road

Reflections beaming down
tides roll on
never was a kind of trust
still sparrows build
a nest upon a shed in Winter

Here I go
for the love
of the road
yeah, here I go
for the love of the road
