He's got a road map of Jupiter
A radar fix on the stars all along the highway
She's got a liquid-crystal compass
A picture book of the rivers under the Sahara

They traveled in the time of the prophets
On a desert highway straight to the heart of the sun
Like lovers and heroes and the restless part of everyone
We're only at home when we're on the run, on the run

She's got a star map of Hollywood
A list of cheap motels all along the freeway
She's got a sister out in Vegas
The promise of a decent job far away from her hometown

She traveled on the road to redemption
A highway out of yesterday that tomorrow will bring
Like lovers and heroes, birds in the last days of spring
We're only at home when we're on the wing, on the wing

We are young
Wandering the face of the earth
Wondering what our dreams might be worth
Learning that we're only immortal for a limited time

We are young
Wandering the face of the earth
Wondering what our dreams might be worth
Learning that we're only immortal for a limited time

Time is a gypsy caravan
Steals away in the night to leave you stranded in Dreamland
Distance is a long-range filter
Memory, a flickering light, left behind in the heartland

We traveled in the dark of the new moon
A starry highway traced on the map of the sky
Like lovers and heroes, lonely as the eagle's cry
We're only at home when we're on the fly, on the fly

We are young
Wandering the face of the earth
Wondering what our dreams might be worth
Learning that we're only immortal for a limited time

We are young
Wandering the face of the earth
Wondering what our dreams might be worth
Learning that we're only immortal for a limited time

We are young
Wandering the face of the earth
Wondering what our dreams might be worth
Learning that we're only immortal for a limited time

We traveled on the road to adventure
On a desert highway straight to the heart of the sun
Like lovers and heroes and the restless part of everyone
We're only at home when we're on the run, on the run
