Audioslave – I Am the Highway Lyrics 6 years ago
All the comments I read all seem to be wrong...or at least to compared to how I read this song.

I am not your rolling wheels
I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride
I am the sky

A relationship where he just a girl's rolling wheels is one like you would have in high school or college for a short stint that was fun but which ultimately ended. A short term enjoyable trip (rolling wheels or magic carpet ride.)

He is saying he wants to be and is her everything-->a highway or a sky.

Then he says friends and liars and don't wait for me and he put millions of miles on his feet to get away and forget about her, but then he says he...

And still too close to you
I feel

He is saying he still has feelings and wants to be with her, but not just for a fling for whatever short term or more casual relationship the girl had wanted.

then he says...

I am not your blowing wind
I am the lightning
I am not your autumn moon
I am the night

Not your blowing wing is more reference to not being just a short term whatever to her in his mind. He is the lighting or the autumn moon (husband\father\long term relationship wanting)
