I'm sitting down by the highway
Everybody's going somewhere
I guess they've got a lot to do
Their lives are justified
He can let me slide
'Cause I've been up and down this highway
No matter how fast I run
No matter where I am
From where I want to be
Like a river to the sea
Baby if you can see me
There's just one thing
Baby you can free me

You've got those bright baby blues
But you don't like to lose
Like your life is a game you don't mind playing
I don't mean to be cruel baby

Turn down your radio
I want you to know
I've felt the love stirring in my soul
It's so hard to come by
This friend of mine said
I thought I flying like a bird
But when I looked down
Now I need someone to help me

Like I know I need you
I'll ask you to do
To the hole in your garden wall
