On a Highway to Freedom

I recently rediscovered this song, one that I had completely forgotten about, probably not heard for more than 20 years.  It's called On a Highway to Freedom, by the German band Fahrenheit 104.  This was their big 1986 hit. When I listen to it, I recall road trips with my family, being a teenager, staring out the car window, watching landscapes fly by, and spinning dreams about an unknown future.
To me, this song is all about just that: Dreams and hope about the yet-to-be, the unknown, the Something out there...


On a highway to freedom, everyone on his own,
Always longing to find the rainbow’s end, never feeling alone.
On a highway to freedom, everyone on his own,
Always longing to find the rainbow’s end, never feeling alone.
(we’re riding on fire), never feeling alone, (we’re riding on fire),
Never feeling alone, (we’re riding on fire).
We’re riding on fire, we are crossing the night,
With a burning desire to get higher and higher, we reach out for the light.
And this world will be a better place, we’ll be children of the sun someday.
On a highway to freedom, everyone on his own,
Always longing to find the rainbow’s end, never feeling alone.
On a highway to freedom everyone on his way,
Always knowing you’re heading for your dream, never going astray.
On a highway to freedom, everyone’s on the track,
Always keeping on rolling down the road, never driving it back.
We’re riding on fire, we are riding on fire, we are crossing the night,
With a burning desire to get higher and higher, we reach out for the light.
And this world will be a better place,
We’ll be children of the sun someday, someday.

On a highway to freedom everyone on his own,
Always longing to find the rainbow’s end,
Never feeling alone (never feeling alone).
On a highway to freedom everyone on his own,
Always longing to find the rainbow’s end, ( the rainbow’s end)
Never feeling alone, (never, never feel alone).
On a highway to freedom everyone on his own,
Always longing to find the rainbow’s end, never feeling alone.
