(Verse 1)
Long days traveling
Straight into night
Darkness unraveling
Underneath big city lights
Going down the open road

Traffic's fast
If it starts to slow
I shift into the passing lane
'Cause all I want to do is go...
Down the open road

And all I really need
Is to feel my wheels picking up speed
Taking me where I want to be
Going down the open road

(Verse 2)
Scorching sun
Pouring rain
Criss-crossing the country
Burning tanks of high octane
Down the open road

I've turned corners
But I've never turned back
Yeah me, I'm just a refugee
From someone else's cul-de-sac
Going down the open road

(Repeat chorus)

Well, if you never have been satisfied
I'll show you what it's like then on the other side
Just come along for the ride
We'll go down the open road

(Verse 3)
Sacred time
Sacred place
Leaving behind
Every reminder, every trace
Going down the open road

Asphalt jungle
Asphalt church
Like some crusader
Nearing the end of my search
Going down the open road

(Repeat chorus)

Going down the open road
Going down the open road
Going down the open road
Going down the open road
