lyrics

The road swings left, the road swings right
It dances oh so gracefully in the direction of the light
It dips down low, into the valley no one knows
It reaches to the mountains high, where no mountaineer did ever go

Ooh, I wanna hug those curves,
spin me in circle, twirl
Ooh, I wanna hug those curves,
wander round the great big world

On tiptoes as we climb the heights,
need wheels that grip on lonely nights
Only the road knows where it goes,
it spins away, loses control

You wanna kiss I can’t say no,
and then you whisper, “I don’t know.”
You make me laugh when I am low,
my letters they remain unopened
Combustion makes my heart’s blood flow,
vacation plans we never go
You move my feet, I fear to go,
with moves that keep me on my toes
I find the dreams lost long ago,
but daughter’s still bear mother’s woes
A ballerina on a tightrope,
walking where she doesn’t know
