Rest Stop

We're just three miles from the rest stop
And she slams on the brakes
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 happened with you
So if you'd open up my 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
So, I thought, hell if it's over
Then 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 reach it
A light was shining from the radio
And I could barely see her face
 
But she knew all the words that I never had said
She knew the crumbled up promise of a broken down man
As I opened up my door
 
Chorus
 
Have you forgotten
You just don't love to love like I love
 
Chorus
 
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
Hell, if it's over
Then I had better end it quick or I could lose all my nerve
Are you listening
Can you hear me
Can you hear me
