The anticipated trailer of GTA 6 has officially launched, causing a lot of positive impressions not only for its stunning graphics but also for its memorable soundtrack song selection.

The franchise is returning to Vice City in the state of Leonida (Florida), which recreates Miami and its surrounding areas in a hyperbolic way. Of course, to convey the very soul of this well-known city, a fitting soundtrack is a must.

Thankfully for those who waited a long time for the GTA 6 trailer, Rockstar nailed it by choosing just the perfect song from Tom Petty to hit the right notes!

Is Love Is a Long Road a Good Fit?

With its Bonnie-and-Clyde romanticism lyrics and classic Miami-reminiscent style, this song perfectly fits what Rockstar intended to depict in GTA 6’s trailer.

Love Is a Long Road captures the traditional early 90s Miami vibe you would expect in Vice City, retaining that bold yet dangerous love often envisioned in these sorts of settings.

Furthermore, the lyrics of the tune perfectly match the visual narrative between Lucia and her partner and crime and seemingly love interest.

Love Is a Long Road Lyrics

[Verse 1]
There was a girl I knew
She said she cared about me
She tried to make my world
The way she thought it should be

[Chorus]
Yeah, we were desperate then
To have each other to hold
But love
Is a long, long road
Yeah, love
Is a long, long road

[Verse 2]
There were so many times
I would wake up at noon
Yeah, with my head spinning ’round
I would wait for the moon

[Chorus]
And give her one more chance
To try and save my soul
But love
Is a long, long road
Yeah, love
Is a long, long road

[Verse 3]
Yeah, it was hard to give up
Some things are hard to let go
Some things are never enough
I guess I only can hope

[Chorus]
For maybe one more chance
To try and save my soul
But love
Is a long, long road
Yeah, love
Is a long, long road

[Outro]
Love
Is a long, long road
Yeah, love
Is a long, long road (Oh)
Oh, it’s a long, long road
