Lyrics:

The road's been calling to me
like a merchant calls his wares.
Teasing me with what I can't
seem to find here.

And I've got no roots to hold me,
like some tree bent to the sky.
For you'd hear my branches snapping
Every-time those clouds roll by.

But there's freedom on the highway
There's safety on the road.
You can loose the one's that might use you.
And your burden is your own load.
And your lover is the road.

I'm a dreamer of the oceans,
like a sailor at the mast.
Caring not what ports
I may have past.

But I've got no ship below me,
just some long forgotten road.
And it's dust not salt that's in my face
And it makes me feel so damn old.

But there's freedom on the highway
Yea there's safety on the road.
You can loose the one's who might use you
And your burden is your own load.
And your lover is the road.
