Lyrics
Well love is a power and I play to rule
Well love is a power and as an absolute corrupts entirely
All our minds and sets a course that we can't sail

Well love is a power and I play to rule
Well love is a power and as an absolute corrupts entirely
All our minds and it's a language we can't use

Well what if I should call your name at night
What if she can't cope with me if we should come to fight
And what if I can't never be nobody else's

Baby got lost on Highway 5 and called my name out loud
Said she broke down and cried about how we can't
live apart
And all the people they were driving by they watched her
Like she was mad
But she knew she would never suffer from the
Madness that
They had

Baby got lost on Highway 5 and called my name out loud
Said she broke down and cried about how we can't
live apart
And all the people they were driving by they watched her
Like she was mad
But she knew she would never suffer from the
Madness that
They had

Baby takes off in a DC-10 stares down Highway 5
She said she looked down and wondered why we can't
live apart
And all the foolish people they were sitting there like a smile on a
foolish face
Flying 500 miles an hour with no sense of time or space

Baby knelt down in a church of God 10 miles down
Highway 5
She said she looked up and asked to know why we can't
live apart
And all the people were standing up and singing like they
were mad
But she don't get no answers to the questions that she had

Heaven saw a knife in a young girl's heart burn right
through on Highway 5
Said it takes time and big mistakes for us to realize
We need each other like the air we breathe ain't nothing
that we can do
And no one else will ever make me quite as mad as you do
