Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Bet your window's rolled down and your hair's pulled back
And I bet you got no idea you're going way too fast
You're trying not to think about what went wrong
Trying not to stop 'til you get where you goin'
You're trying to stay awake so I bet you turn on the radio and the song goes

[Chorus]
I can't live without you, I can't live without you, baby
I can't live without you, I can't live without you, baby, baby
The highway won't hold you tonight
The highway don't know you're alive
The highway don't care if you're all alone, but I do, I do.
The highway won't dry your tears
The highway don't need you here
The highway don't care if you're coming home, but I do, I do.

[Verse 2]
I bet you got a dead cell phone in your shotgun seat
Yeah, I bet you're bending God's ear talking 'bout me.
You're trying not to let the first tear fall out
Trying not to think about turning around
You're trying not to get lost in the sound but that song is always on, so you sing along

[Chorus]
I can't live without you, I can't live without you, baby
I can't live without you I can't live without you baby, oh baby
The highway won't hold you tonight
The highway don't know you're alive
The highway don't care if you're all alone, but I do, I do.
The highway won't dry your tears
The highway don't need you here
The highway don't care if you're coming home, but I do, I do.

[Bridge]
I can't live without you, I can't live without you, baby
I can't live without you I can't live without you, baby, oh baby
The highway don't care
The highway don't care
The highway don't care, but I do, I do.

[Outro]
I can't live without you, I can't live without you, baby
(The highway don't care, the highway don't care)
I can't live without you I can't live without you, baby, oh baby
(The highway don't care, but I do, I do)
I can't live without you, I can't live without you, baby
(The highway don't care, the highway don't care)
I can't live without you I can't live without you, baby
(The highway don't care, but I do I do)
I can't live without you, I can't live without you, baby
(The highway don't care, the highway don't care)
I can't live without you I can't live without you, baby, oh baby
(The highway don't care, but I do I do)
I can't live without you, I can't live without you, baby
