Well, I got us on a highway, I got us in a car
Got us going faster than we've ever gone before
I got us on a highway, I got us in a car
Got us going faster than we've ever gone before

And I know it ain't gonna last
And I know it ain't gonna last
When I see your eyes arrive
They explode like two bugs on glass

Far above the ocean, deep under the sea
There's a river running dry 'cause of you and me
Far above the ocean, deep under the sea
There's a river running dry 'cause of you and me

And I know it ain't gonna last
And I know it ain't gonna last
When I see your eyes arrive
They explode like two bugs on glass

She's a goddess on a highway, a goddess in a car
A goddess going faster than she's ever gone before
She's a goddess on a highway, a goddess in a car
Goddess going faster than she's ever gone before

And I know it ain't gonna last
And I know it ain't gonna last
When I see your eyes arrive
They explode like two bugs on glass

And I know it ain't gonna last
And I know it ain't gonna last
And I know it ain't gonna last
And I know it ain't gonna last
It ain't gonna last
It ain't gonna last
It ain't gonna last
It ain't gonna last

Great album this is from, pity after this they thought easy listening was the path to glory.
It ain't gonna last....there you go....words to live by for sure :^ / Good grief.
I highly recommend this CD, especially if you like the Flaming Lips.  It's a bit strange, but I like it.
Mercury Rev may not be for everyone but I dig em.  Nice hearing them on RP.  Thanks Bill!

she's a goddess on the highway  
very good
I haven't heard this for YEARS. Love it. Best morning on RP since I've been listening.
Love this song, one of the many bands I heard for the first time from a magazine called CMJ in which each issue included a free CD with all the new bands (or old bands with new songs), and they were usually obscure bands that never made a name for themselves, but some like this one were really great!  I still have all those CD's, wish I would have kept the mags too as they really had some great writers!

This is a great, great record.


New to me, and I'm enjoying this immensely.  Thanks to RP and whomever uploaded the song!
This is one of the many songs that I remember hearing and liking way back, but never knew the artist or title. Thanks RP for bringing them back!
This is cool!
huh.
yahoooooooo. fine :)
C'mon
Come on Bill, it's a beauty...
