"Long Highway" as written by and Heather Gail Shannon Nikolas Stephan Kaloper....
You see this writing on the wall.
Oh, angel, you see this curtain fall.
Good times seem so far away.
Just a memory, old and grey.
And there was no one like you.
You rip apart the clouds in all my days.
Others all fade away,

on this long highway, mesmerising.
Long highway, paralysing, long highway.

And you may find your place to run to, in winter frosts, your bed to climb to,
but I have seen down deep inside you.
They won't love you
quite like I do.

Look around, something real.
Touch something you can feel.
I found my dreams were ordinary.
Let me turn to sand.
Still, will be waiting for you.
Still, it will be there.
In the colour of rose on the sky,
in the ever-steady glow of your eye,
let it all fade away.

Long highway, mesmerising.
Long highway, paralysing.
I'm on my way.
So, looking back, you
with your hands on your face.
Did I drift into your mind?
Did I find a place?
All that we had here,
did it happen everyday?

Long highway, terrorising.
When I call your name,
you stand before me.
Hear me roar.
Hear me roar.

    Song MeaningI have a feeling this song is about death, & whether people are able to handle the grief of losing someone close to them.

    It's a long highway to overcome the grief & remember that person, at least in my opinion.

    Song MeaningFirst of all, how can there be no comments for this song! The more I listen to it, the better it gets. And wow, these lyrics are powerful.

    This is my opinion on the meaning, although it may be totally off.
    The person was possibly in a relationship with someone and it was meant to be.
    The memories and times were great! Nothing compares to this person.
    "Long highway, mesmerising.
    Long highway, paralysing." - everything seems so distant and far.
    She/he will always love and be waiting for this other person. She/he is hopeful about it, although it could be a long shot.
