(Lyric Find)

Highway run

Into the midnight sun

Wheels go round and round

You’re on my mind

Restless hearts

Sleep alone tonight

Sendin’ all my love

Along the wire

They say that the road

Ain’t no place to start a family

Right down the line

It’s been you and me

And lovin’ a music man

Ain’t always what it’s supposed to be

Oh girl you stand by me

I’m forever yours, faithfully

Circus life

Under the big top world

We all need the clowns

To make us smile

Through space and time

Always another show

Wondering where I am

Lost without you

And being apart ain’t easy on this love affair

Two strangers learn to fall in love again

I get the joy

Of rediscovering you

Oh girl, you stand by me

I’m forever yours, faithfully

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Faithfully, I’m still yours

I’m forever yours

Ever yours, faithfully
