lyrics

the winter has melted but this city, it's still cold
routine has taken over and i'm feelin' so old
so i pack my bags and hit the road, when all that's left is shattered hope
escape the familiar, embrace the unknown
and let the highway gospel soothe my soul

standin' on the shoulder in the midday sun
smiling at the drivers and stickin out our thumbs
you had one hand thumbin' west, the other hand in mine
there isn't any other way i'd rather spend my time

cause as the cars fly by and i see you look at me and smile
all my fears are lost in that string of yellow highway lines
i know we might bicker and i know we might fight
but i just don't want it any other way

we got a good ride, let's both take the back seat
fly by rolling canola fields under an infinite sky
we both got jobs and a great place to stay
these neverending saskatchewan roads will take me far away

to a place where everybody knows their neighbours
to a place where everybody knows the mayor
to a place where the thunderstorms rattle in your bones
to a place where they harvest their own grain
to a place where they hunt their own terrain
and to a place where we get drunk and play horseshoes all day long
a place called gerald, saskatchewan

but as the cars fly by and i see you look at me and smile
all my fears are lost in that string of yellow highway lines
i know we might be hungry and i know we might be lost
but i just don't want it any other way

then we left and headed further west
through the rockies, where the air is the best
the mountains were beautiful but fucking unforgiving
when i was dying of thirst on the side of the road
ya know i felt like i was finally living

and as we roll out our sleeping bags, side by side
underneath the stars guarded only by the mountains
i feel a freedom so real and a dream so strong
that i just don't want it any other way
i just don't want it any other way
i just don't want it any other way
