One Down and Four Up - lyrics

Kick start
Spread my legs apart
I need
The open road today Kim Smith Singing with Dave Morgan

Give me
An easy ride
Take me
Anywhere, take me away

One down and four up
Feeling through turns we’re leaning from side to side
One down and four up
There are no seatbelts on this E-ticket ride

I try
To read your mind
There’s no
Telling what I’ll find

Miles fly
By in a blur
Knees squeeze
I feel the engine purr

One down and four up
Feeling through turns we’re leaning from side to side
One down and four up
There are no seatbelts on this E-ticket ride

Wrap my
Arms around you
And I lace my fingers
across your heart

If you
Only knew
That I have loved you
from the start

I feel
Wind rushing through my hair
Our Hearts
Are racing the engine
Like two
Bats out of hell straight to heaven

Hold tight
It’s just you and me
Saddled up
We’re always rolling free

You are
My love my guy
And we
Will never say goodbye

One down and four up
Feeling through turns we’re leaning from side to side
One down and four up
There are no seatbelts on this E-ticket ride
One down and four up
Feeling through turns we’re leaning from side to side
One down and four up
There are no seatbelts on this E-ticket ride
One down and four up
Feeling through turns we’re leaning from side to side
One down and four up
There are no seatbelts on this E-ticket ride

More than 20 years after I earned my motorcycle endorsement, how did I fall in love with riding again? It’s a case of ‘life imitating art’ as I wrote my first novel and decided I had to have the bike from my own book…
