Mixtape Monday #8

Hello Human Being.

It’s Mixtape Monday!

Once again I’ve disappeared. I am really ashamed of how poorly I’ve done keeping up with this blog… but then, frankly, I’m not. I’ve been having a great time, drinking in the final days of Spring, celebrating the Solstice (Litha!), camping, hiking, gardening, playing with my dogs (and cats), and just living.

So with that in mind I decided to share another of my favorite “Summer Songs”. All too appropriate with the travels my husband and I have made to various parts of the state and beyond, and also of course, the overarching message of this song. It’s just a good one, and if it doesn’t make you smile, well, I don’t understand you. :)

The song I’ve chosen today is “Life is a Highway” by Tom Cochrane (released on his album Mad, Mad World in 1991).

Life is a Highway

Life’s like a road that you travel on
When there’s one day here and the next day gone
Sometimes you bend, sometimes you stand
Sometimes you turn your back to the wind

There’s a world outside every darkened door
Where blues won’t haunt you anymore
Where the brave are free and lovers soar
Come ride with me to the distant shore

We won’t hesitate break down the garden gate
There’s not much left today

Life is a highway
I want to ride it all night long
If you’re going my way
I want to drive it all night long

Through all the cities and all these towns
It’s in my blood and it’s all around
I love you now like I loved you then
This is the road and these are the hands

From Mozambique to those Memphis nights
The Khyber Pass to Vancouver’s lights
Knock me down get back up again
You’re in my blood I’m not a lonely man

There’s no load I can’t hold
Road so rough this I know
I’ll be there when the light comes in
Tell ’em we’re survivors

Life is a highway
I want to ride it all night long
If you’re going my way
I want to drive it all night long

Life is a highway
I want to ride it all night long
If you’re going my way
I want to drive it all night long

There was a distance between you and I
A misunderstanding once but now
We look it in the eye

There’s no load, I can’t hold
Road so rough this I know
I’ll be there when the light comes in
Tell ’em we’re survivors

Life is a highway
I want to ride it all night long
If you’re going my way
I want to drive it all night long

Life is a highway
I want to ride it all night long
If you’re going my way
I want to drive it all night long

Life is a highway
I want to ride it all night long
If you’re going my way
I want to drive it all night long
