"Lost Highway" as written by Jon Bon Jovi, Richard Sambora and John M. Shanks....
Hey, hey
Hey, hey

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 you hit the road 'round here
So I drive (Drive, drive)
Watching white lines passing by
With my plastic dashboard Jesus
Waiting there to greet us

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

Don't know where I'm going
But I know where I've been
I'm afraid of going back again
So I drive (Drive, drive)
Years and miles are flying by
And waiting there to greet us
Is my plastic dashboard Jesus

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

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

I finally found my way
Said goodbye to yesterday
Hit the gas, there ain't no brakes on this lost highway
I'm busting loose, I'm lettin' go
When I'm out on this open road
It's independence day on this lost highway
Hey hey
Hey hey
Hey hey
On this lost highway

    General CommentThis is pretty self-explanatory. I really like it.

    He has been riding on a "lost highway," ie his life has been confusing, tumultuous and he hasn't found his way.

    Now he sees the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel and he's racing for it. "Hit the gas. There ain't no brakes."

    There's obviously a spiritual side of it, too. He has found Jesus and is letting him guide him out of the darkness. "Guide the car, you've got the keys."

    General CommentI really like this song. I agree with the people below, me, i think he has had a rough life, and maybe made some mistakes, but now he is changing it and giving his new life all he can give, by just letting go of his past and taking a new chance of life, always hitting the gas and moving forward, and not giving up and stopping.

    General CommentI Think This Album Is Alot Better Than Have A Nice Day, Its Got A Country Rock Sound To It, Which For Me Is Better Than The Pop Rock Of Have A Nice Day And Bounce. (:
