My love is in league with the freeway
Its passion will rise as the cities fly by
And the tail lights dissolve in the coming of night
And the questions and thousands take flight

My love is miles in awaiting
The eyes that just stare and the glance at the clock
In the secret that burns and the pain that won't stop
And it's fueled with the years

Leading me on (leading me on)
Leading me down the road
Driving me on (driving me on)
Driving me down the road

My love is exceeding the limit
Red eyed and fevered with the hum of the miles
Distance and longing, my thoughts do collide
Should I rest for a while at the side?

Your love is cradled in knowing
Eyes in the mirror still expecting their prey
Sensing too well when the journey is done
There is no turning back, no
There is no turning back on the run

My love is in the league
With the freeway
Oh, with the freeway
And the coming of the night time
My love
My love is in the league with the freeway

    General Commentwhat it means? to me?
    a classic about plant selling his soul, or whatever was in the pact, the two meanings

    My love is in league with the freeway (the freeway, is of course the way of the Devil, no law, etc, here the singer's love is in league- pact- covenant, agreement with it)
    Its passion will ride as the cities fly by
    And the tail-lights dissolve in the coming of night
    And the questions in thousands take flight (doubts, etc)
    My love is the miles and the waiting (futility)
    The eyes that just stare, and the glance at the clock
    And the secret that burns, and the pain that won't stop(maybe a little regret, hence no turning back, driven so2seak)
    And it's fuelled once again (but it'd recharged, refueled, once again)
    Leading me on - leading me down the road (the spirit leads the disciple)
    Driving me on - driving me down the road (the road eventually ends, driven on down it)

    My love is exceeding the limit
    Red-eyed and fevered with the hum of the miles
    Distance and longing - my thoughts do collide
    Should I rest for a while at the side?(this is, should I just end it?, suicide)
    Your love is cradled in knowing
    Eyes in the mirror, still expecting they'll come (this would be the beings of light, an arrival everyone senses, though few perceive accurately- ''sometimes words have two meanings'' - "from stairway"
    Sensing too well when the journey is done (a call to death)
    There is no turning back - no (once sold, it cannot be recovered, it's in the deal, fame now... but...)
    There is no turning back - on the run (a belief in unforgiven)

    My love is in league with the freeway (the last call to where his allegiance lies, and with whom his soul rests...yowza!!!)
    Oh, with the freeway, and the coming of night-time(the darkness)
    My love, my love is in league with the freeway
