If our lives could lie before us
Like a straight and narrow highway
So that we could see forever
Long before we took the ride
We would never look to heaven
Make a wish or climb a mountain
'Cause we'd always know the answer
To what's on the other side

But life ain't no easy freeway
Just some gravel on the ground
You pay for every mile you go
And you spread some dust around
But we all have destinations
And the dust will settle down
This life ain't no easy freeway
Just some gravel on the ground

So let's walk the road together
Who knows what we'll find tomorrow
Maybe good times, maybe sorrow
Will be waitin' 'round the bend
Given time two hearts discover
What they're feelin' for each other
At the best we'll end up lovers
At the least we'll make a friend

But life ain't no easy freeway
Just some gravel on the ground
You pay for every mile you go
And you spread some dust around
But we all have destinations
And the dust will settle down
This life ain't no easy freeway
Just some gravel on the ground
