The Rush

Verse 1

Angels ridin' on my shoulders, they've been lookin' after me
Six strings, this old highway, my songs and I'm free
People ask me one question, it's not mysterious
Why does the music still drive me
I just tell them it's THE RUSH

Verse 2

I still stand here in wonder after all of these years
How can music and words make hard times disappear
To sing for you people that I hope to touch
Is the reason that drives me
The reason for THE RUSH

Bridge

It's an addiction that found me when I first took the stage
I stare in amazement as these words fill the page
There's something that drives me, it's been continuous
It burns deep in my soul, keeps me reaching for THE RUSH

Bridge

It's an addiction that found me when I first took the stage
I stare in amazement as these words fill the page
There's something that drives me, it's been continuous
It burns deep in my soul, keeps me reaching for THE RUSH

Verse 3

Now, I will always remember until my dying day
All the stories and people I've loved 'long the way
As I write down these memories I surrender and trust
That the music will save me, keep me livin' for THE RUSH

Outro

Yes, it's the music that saves me, I'm only in it for THE RUSH
And I will always remember that first feeling of.........
THE RUSH...............
