lyrics

The Ride

Heading down that highway
I’ve got nothing but miles and miles of clear blue sky
Heading through hills sign-posted memories
Of times laid to rest along that road

Along for the ride
Strawberry fields along the way
Along for the ride
Till I find a reason to stay

You say there is nothing here
I’m wasting my time
But there is more in what you do than in what you say
You say you’re leaving here you’re leaving tonight
The road is long I’ll see you along the way

Along for the ride
Lightning and rain along the way
Along for the ride
Till I find a reason to stay

The highway, hides the road
The trees, hide the hills
Your eyes hide the trials of yesterday
and what it will take for you to make your way

Shooting stars and crowded bars in every town along the road
Someday I’ll stay
It’s so hard to dictate, It’s so hard to shape
The highway will try to take you on her way Along for the ride
Strawberry fields along the way

Along for the ride
Till I find a reason to stay
Till I find a reason to stay
Till I find a reason to stay
Till I find a reason...

Noted for his passionate performances and rugged vocal style, Elie’s music is writerly, invigorating and, perhaps most important of all, utterly compelling whilst challenging the listener with its message.
