The Song - Travelling Life's Highway

Written and produced by Miss Tun Pickney.

The Song Idea

Travelling Life's Highway, reggae song, reggae music, Single Cover Art

I was thinking about the vibe for a song I wanted to write and Steve Winwood’s hit 'High Life' came to mind, a song I always liked. I searched on Google and found it was on a compilation album 'Life is a Highway' and that title sowed a seed. The analogy of life as a highway really clicked with me. You meet others, there are diversions, you have a destination, and depending on your route the journey could be full of joy or pain. These were the themes I explored in the song.

Lyrics

Verse 

Like the sunrise in the early morning

What lies ahead will be slowly dawning

Lives and futures never constant through the day

Never knowing with whom our world may cross

Will it bring regret or a magic touch

Like the sun there will be highs and lows each day

 

 Chorus

Travelling life's highway

Heading for a place called tomorrow

Better make the most of today

Whether feeling happiness or sorrow

 

Travelling life's highway 

Heading for a place called tomorrow

Love every second of the day 

Time is something you can never borrow

While travelling life's highway 

 

 

Verse 2

Though we're part way through our journey

No sign that hindsight's gonna come early

No point wanting to re-live moments again

There'll be diversions we want to follow

But what they promise may turn out hollow

Sometimes it's best to change to another lane

 

 

Chorus

Travelling life's highway 

Heading for a place called tomorrow

Better make the most of today 

Whether feeling happiness or sorrow

 

Travelling life's highway 

Heading for a place called tomorrow

Love every second of the day 

Time is something you can never borrow

While travelling life's highway 

 

 

 

Verse 3

We say hello or goodbye to many

Moments live on as heartfelt memories

But memories can bring love heartache or blame

We'll get to our destination some day

Then we remember the journey some say 

Will we fill it with more love laughter or pain

 

Chorus

Travelling life's highway

Heading for a place called tomorrow

Better make the most of today

Whether feeling happiness or sorrow

 

Travelling life's highway

Heading for a place called tomorrow

Love every second of the day 

Time is something you can never borrow 

While travelling life's highway
