Rest Stop

Lyricist: THOMAS, ROBERT    Composer:

Just three miles from the rest stop
She slams on the breaks
She said, "I tried to be but I'm not
And could you please collect your things"
Well, I don't wanna be cold
I don't wanna be cruel
But I gotta find more than
What's happening with you
An' if you'd open up the door

She said, "While you were sleeping
I was listening to the radio
And wondering what you're dreaming when
It came to mind that I didn't care"
And I thought hell if it's over
Well, I had better end it quick
Or I could lose my nerve
Are you listening? Can you hear me?
Have you forgotten?

Just three miles from the rest stop
And my mouth's too dry to rage
The light was shining from the radio
An' I could barely see her face
But she knew all the words that I never had said
She knew the crumpled up promise of this
Broken down man and as I opened up the door

She said, "While you were sleeping
I was listening to the radio
And wondering what you're dreaming when
It came to mind that I didn't care"
And I thought hell if it's over
And I had better end it quick
Or I could lose my nerve
Are you listening? Can you hear me?

Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?

While you were sleeping
Well, I was listening to the radio
And wondering what you're dreaming when
It came to mind that I didn't care
So I thought hell if it's over
Well, I had better end it quick
Or I could lose all my nerve
Are you listening? Can you hear me?

While you were sleeping
I was listening to the radio
And wondering what you're dreaming when
It came to mind that I didn't care
I thought hell if it's over
Well, I had better end it quick
Or I could lose all my nerve
Are you listening? Can you hear me?
