i am the highway lyrics – chris cornell

(originally by audioslave)

pearls and swine bereft of me.
long and weary my road has been.
i was lost in the cities, alone in the hills.
no sorrow or pity for leaving, i feel.

i am not your rolling wheels, i am the highway.
i am not your carpet ride, i am the sky.

friends and liars don’t wait for me,
’cause i’ll get on all by myself.
i put millions of miles under my heels;
and still too close to you i feel.

i am not your rolling wheels, i am the highway.
i am not your carpet ride, i am the sky.
i am not your blowing wind, i am the lightning.
i am not your autumn moon, i am the night… night.

i am not your rolling wheels, i am the highway.
i am not your carpet ride, i am the sky.
i am not your blowing wind, i am the lightning.
i am not your autumn moon, i am night… night… night.
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
