Matchbox Twenty


Rest Stop

Just three miles from the rest stop
And she slams on the breaks
She said I tried to be but I’m not
And could you please collect your things
I don’t wanna be cold
I don’t wanna be cruel
But I gotta find more
Than what’s happening with you
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
So I thought - hell if it’s over
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
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
So I thought - hell if it’s over
I had better end it quick
Or I could lose my nerve
Are you listening - can you hear me
Have you forgotten

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
I had better end it quick
Or I could lose 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
So I thought - hell if it’s over
I had better end it quick
Or I could lose all my nerve
Are you listening - can you hear me
