"Life Is a Highway" as written by and Thomas William Cochrane....
Life's like a road that you travel on
When there's one day here and the next day gone
Sometimes you bend and 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 brave are free and lovers soar
Come ride with me to the distant shore

We won't hesitate
To break down the garden gate
There's not much time left today

Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I wanna 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 and back up again
You're in my blood; I'm not a lonely man

There's no load I can't hold
A road so rough this I know
I'll be there when the light comes in
Tell 'em we're survivors
Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I wanna drive it all night long
Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I wanna drive it all night long

There was a distance between you and I
A misunderstanding once
But now we look in the eye

There ain't no load that I can't hold
A road so rough this I know
I'll be there when the light comes in
Tell 'em we're survivors

Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I wanna drive it all night long
Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I wanna drive it all night long
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, yeah
Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I wanna drive it all night long

    General Commentthe lines "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"
    speak the most to me, because it shows that we can travel as far as we like and go to many many places, but we can never get too far away to escape true love

    General CommentThis song is just so much fun! I loved the cars movie... I know it is a kid movie but it was pretty good. Some of the parts in this song can apply to life too. I mean you just need to keep going.
