Are you ready?

Been down this street so many times,
Could hit the gas and close my eyes.
And not touch a thing.


The doorways here are always dark,
Keep movin', it's not safe to park.
'Cause this ain't no lover's lane.

It's where infatuation goes,
You hit this long, strange stretch of road.
And you don't know where it leads.

But if we're goin' anywhere,
Only this'll take us there.
So, baby, hold your breath,
And wrap your arms around me, yeah.

Here we go now, a little closer,
Keep your head down on my shoulder.
We're on our way but it's gonna get rough,
On this road:
The road to lasting love.

Look into the rear view mirror,
Remember all that got us here.
We're gonna need it later.

Out the window, all around,
Dreams in pieces on the ground,
'Cause it won't be easy, baby.

You know if faith and hope and trust,
Ain't ridin' in these hearts with us,
This trip's gonna break on me.


Oh, I've never seen the other side,
But, girl, when you look in my eyes,
I've seen it out there,
I believe that we can make it, baby.

Here we go now, a little closer,
Keep your head down on my shoulder.
We're on our way but it's gonna get rough,
On this road:
The road to lasting love.

There's a light up ahead that we all wanna reach.
So we grab every chance that we can.
But we lose and get lost.
Just a few get across,
This broken promise land.

Here we go now, a little closer,
Keep your head down on my shoulder.
We're on our way but it's gonna get rough,
On this road:
This road to lasting love.

Here we go now, a little closer,
Keep your head down on my shoulder.
We're on our way but it's gonna get rough,
On this road:
This road to lasting love.

Road to lasting love.
Road to lasting love.
