Lyrics

so i looked for the slow lane
i looked for the breakthrough
so i wanted to touch down
so i wanted to hold you
so i went for the penthouse
so i went for the top prize
so i let it all fall away
unfinished and compromised

i can never be
better than brave
it's all i know
and i'm still
out here
on the road

and you thought it was too good
and you thought it was wrong or unreal
and you rode along anyway
you trusted me at the wheel
and you carried the heavy loads
you carried the hard times
and you kindly let me go
because i needed to stay on the ride

are you dancing now
my love?
it must be so
and i miss you
out here
on the road

well we broke all the bad rules
we broke where we had to heal
we made a host of memories
we made the most of our crazy deal
i slide into the slow lanes
i brake for the breakthroughs
i’m still trying to touch down
still hoping to hold you

i will always be
moving ahead
that's how i grow
and i’ll see you
out here
on the road

are you dancing now
my love?
