Your life stepped lightly out of hands
When no one's lookin' at you understand
Your world was a wheel but the cog ceased to turn
The bottom fell out and our fingers got burned

And there's a
Cold, cold highway that the wind whistles down
(Cold, cold highway)
(You've got the)
You've got the corners turn blind like the graveyard ground
(Oh oh black)
Oh your black icy snare once cut down my friend
In the deepest dark winter when the world seemed to end
(Aay)

Every new version of the way of life
Leaves you reckless and searchin' for stars in the night
But whose kid are you when they finally decide?
The lifestyle you led and the way that you died

And there's a
Cold, cold highway that the wind whistles down
(Cold, cold highway)
Where the corners turn blind like the graveyard ground
(Oh oh black)
Oh your black icy snare once cut down my friend
In the deepest dark winter when the world seemed to end
(Away)

But they're oh so simple
They're still tryin' to tell
The difference for you between Heaven an' Hell
To glorify somethin'
Your legends are found
But all they bought you was a hole in the ground

Years rollin' by just like a dream
(Ooh)
I'm partly human and I'm partly machine
They've lost you in fate put your name on a stone
(Aaa)
Perhaps now my friend they might leave you alone
(Aaa)

And there's a
Cold, cold highway that the wind whistles down
(Cold, cold highway)
Where the corners turn blind like the graveyard ground
(Oh oh black)
Oh your black icy snare once cut down my friend
In the deepest dark winter when the world seemed to end
(Aay)
