I'm sitting down by the highway
    Down by that highway side
    Everybody's going somewhere
    Riding just as fast as they can ride
    I guess they've got a lot to do
    Before they can rest assured
    Their lives are justified
    Pray to God for me baby
    He can let me slide

    'Cause I've been up and down this highway
    Far as my eyes can see
    No matter how fast I run
    I can never seem to get away from me
    No matter where I am
    I can't help feeling I'm just a day away
    From where I want to be
    Now I'm running home baby
    Like a river to the sea

    Baby if you can see me
    Out across this wilderness
    There's just one thing
    I was hoping you might guess
    Baby you can free me
    All in the power of your sweet tenderness

    I can see it in your eyes
    You've got those bright baby blues
    You don't see what you've got to gain
    But you don't like to lose
    You watch yourself from the sidelines
    Like your life is a game you don't mind playing
    To keep yourself amused
    I don't mean to be cruel baby
    But you're looking confused

    Baby if you can hear me
    Turn down your radio
    There's just one thing
    I want you to know
    When you've been near me
    I've felt the love stirring in my soul

    It's so hard to come by
    That feeling of peace
    This friend of mine said
    "Close your eyes, and try a few of these"
    I thought I flying like a bird
    So far above my sorrow
    But when I looked down
    I was standing on my knees
    Now I need someone to help me
    Someone to help me please

    Baby if you need me
    Like I know I need you
    There's just one thing
    I'll ask you to do
    Take my hand and lead me
    To the hole in your garden wall
    And pull me through
