the highway lyrics – ajalon

i’m waiting,
for a shiny new life when i leave the old.
i’m tired,
and it’s hard to go on when the world goes cold.
i hunger,
for a different place he prepares for me.
i wander,
like a rudderless boat on a hostile sea.

chorus
deep in the darkness calling me,
out to a brand new day.
i don’t want to be left in the back street.
pinned down and hidden from the light of day.
i don’t want to be sitting on the curb
when i yearn to speed down a distant highway.

i wonder,
will the world ever see what you’ve done for them?
i travel,
down the lines on a map with an urgent mission.
i hunger,
for a glorious place he prepares for me.
i wander,
like a rudderless boat on a hostile sea.

2nd chorus
deep in the darkness calling me
out to a brand new day
i don’t want to exchange what you gave me,
for the worlds nihilistic ways.
i fight the fear and i cry, lord save me!
put me back on the narrow highway!
i don’t want to be left on the back street.
pinned down and hidden from the light of day.
i don’t want to be sitting on the curb
when i yearn to speed down a distant highway.
