Open Road

Open Road is a pop song about seeking change and freedom.

I recorded and produced this on my laptop so dodgy sound quality, but would be good to get feedback. Might take this into studio and get it done properly.

Lyrics

I'm gonna pack my bags
I'm gonna walk out the door
I'm gonna find something new

I'm gonna keep on driving
the road is long and winding
I'm gonna take my chances on the Open  Road

I do it for my satisfaction
Its the way it makes me feel
I'm driving through the wild wind with my hand upon the wheel
and the rain upon my window shield its a freedom you can't steal
Coasting down suburban streets with time upon my heel
Oh its the way it makes me feel
I'm passing under city lights with my hand upon the wheel, on the wheel

I'm gonna take my time
I'm gonna run through state lines
I'm gonna cut right through the night to somewhere new
I'm gonna live a new life
I'm gonna shift to overdrive
I'm gonna run til sunrise
on the open road

I do it for my satisfaction
Its the way it makes me feel
I'm driving through the wild wind with my hand upon the wheel
and the rain upon my window shield its a freedom you can't steal
Coasting down suburban streets with time upon my heel
Oh its the way it makes me feel
I'm passing under city lights with my hand upon the wheel, on the wheel

On the wheel, on the wheel, on the open road
On the wheel, on the wheel, on the open road
On the wheel, on the wheel, on the open road

I do it for my satisfaction
its the way it makes me feel
I'm driving through the wild wind with my hand upon the wheel, on the wheel

I'm gonna drive under the sun
I'm gonna feel it beating down
I'm gonna feel forever young on the open road
I'm be on the run
I'm gonna make a million
I'm gonna drive to oblivion on the open road


I do it for my satisfaction
Its the way it makes me feel
I'm driving through the wild wind with my hand upon the wheel
and the rain upon my window shield its a freedom you can't steal
Coasting down suburban streets with time upon my heel
Oh its the way it makes me feel
I'm passing under city lights with my hand upon the wheel, on the wheel

I do it for my satisfaction
Its the way it makes me feel
I'm driving through the wild wind with my hand upon the wheel
and the rain upon my window shield its a freedom you can't steal
Coasting down suburban streets with time upon my heel
Oh its the way it makes me feel
I'm passing under city lights with my hand upon the wheel, on the wheel

On the wheel, on the wheel, on the open road
On the wheel, on the wheel, on the open road
On the wheel, on the wheel, on the open road
On the wheel, on the wheel, on the open road
On the wheel, on the wheel, on the open road
On the wheel, on the wheel, on the open road

Hey @Polestar ....the link takes us to your general Soundcloud page....which is not a bad thing at all. I am skipping through your catalog and enjoying the listen.

Cool @Polestar   :)
It's almost like a calypso feel. The chorus has a nice flow.

Upbeat, and a happy vibe.......good stuff!
This belongs as a soundtrack introducing a television production....a sit/com for instance ;-)
Love it....

Couldn`t find this song on your SC @Polestar . I like Cain & Abel though- great energy and a BIG sound with a very catchy chorus.

Thanks for feedback everyone. Like the idea of introducing a tv production. Never considered that! Sorry you couldn’t find the song Robert. The Soundcloud gremlins have been at work ;) should work now.
