He does a lot of thinkin' in his car, goin' forward, never lookin' back.
He moves with the traffic of time, ridin' on the Freeway of Life.
The white line keeps him company, mem'ries tumble thru his head.
The endless highway is his friend, ridin' on the Freeway of Life.

His world's in motion from one setting to the next,
Always reachin' just beyond the nearest star.
No time to worry what's in someone else's mind;
Too busy dreamin' of some sight he's never seen.

And he breathes in the fragrance of the road, welcomes the taste of each view.
He flies with the lightning and the storm, ridin' on the Freeway of Life.

He races the pavement in the sinking of the sun,
heads for the high road at the birth of each new day,
Weaves with the landscape, but his course will never change.
He's driven to a destiny on a trip that never ends.

And his fortune is waiting in the wind. Who knows where the open road leads?
Wisdom's his only worldly gain, ridin' on the Freeway of Life.

His world's in motion from one setting to the next,
always reachin' just beyond the nearest star.
No time to worry what's in someone else's mind;
too busy dreamin' of some sight he's never seen.

And he breathes in the fragrance of the road, welcomes the taste of each view,
Wisdom's his only worldly gain, ridin' on the Freeway of Life.
Drivin' down the Freeway of Life. Travelin' on the Freeway of Life.
Headin' home on the Freeway of Life.

CHORUS:
We all have gifts to give, making the whole world brighter.
We have gifts to give, taking our spirits higher.
When we give freely of our love, so much more love we receive;
This is the wondrous pattern that we weave.

When you are in lack, speak with words of praise.
If you count them, you will find your blessings will amaze.
When you are in fear,  spread the gift of love.
The joy of calm and peace of mind surrounds you like a glove with ...

CHORUS:
Gifts to give, making the whole world brighter.
We have gifts to give, taking our spirits higher.
When we give freely of our love, so much more love we receive;
This is the wondrous pattern that we weave.

When anger fills your heart, understanding is your gift
To put your life in harmony and give everyone a lift.
When you are in pain, fill your mind with prayer.
An awe-inspiring web of love supports you everywhere with ...

CHORUS:
Gifts to give, making the whole world brighter.
We have gifts to give, taking our spirits higher.
When we give freely of our love, so much more love we receive;
This is the wondrous pattern that we weave.

Giving of yourself doesn’t cost you anything,
But that gift is more valuable than any other you can bring.
There’s something you can give, that someone can embrace.
Somebody will be happier, this world a better place with ...

CHORUS:
Gifts to give, making the whole world brighter.
We have gifts to give, taking our spirits higher.
When we give freely of our love, so much more love we receive;
This is the wondrous pattern that we weave.
