about

The open road and the journey into the unknown, putting everything on the line for the dream.

lyrics

Been driving for days on end taking longer than I planned
Gonna keep my foot to the floor ‘til I see the lights of the promise land
Got an IV drip of coffee and the radio is set to blast
Might not be the first to finish this race but I know I won’t be coming in last

Eyes on that dotted yellow line gonna find my way back home
I never been there before but I know it’s gonna called me it’s own

All night, bright lights, city slickin’ now it’s time we took our turn
1200 miles to get here baby gonna see how bright our star can burn
No regrets, can’t forget to place our bets on our number one chance to take
Living the high life or in the gutter, it’s gonna be make or break

I've been accused of lettin’ chances pass me by, but it ain’t gonna be like before
Got a hot batch of tracks and I won’t be comin’ back without a knock on opportunity’s door
Got 34 dollars and my West Coast strut, I’m steppin’ forward with a new attitude
Rollin’ 7’s and 11’s til the sun comes up until my fingers turnin’ black and blue

Eyes on that ever-elusive prize hope I know it when it comes
Holdin’ on tight to what I know and not forgettin’ where I’m from

All night, bright lights, city slickin’ now it’s time we took our turn
1200 miles to get here baby gonna see how bright our star can burn
No regrets, can’t forget to place our bets on our number one chance to take
Living the high life or in the gutter, it’s gonna be make or break
Living the high life or in the gutter, it’s gonna be make or break
