lyrics

Asleep at the Wheel

Well we gave it a hell of a fight
We screamed and we talked and we cried
Till we had to admit that calling it quits
Was the only thing we hadn't tried

So you gave me one last farewell kiss
And I promised that I would be brave
That I'd do my best to go it alone
And I'd smile when I thought of your name

But last night I woke up in your headlights
And my heart was racing to go
So I snuck out like some teenaged girl after dark
And we sped off back out on the road

It's time to wake up now
This isn't real
Stop driving by my house
Asleep at the wheel

It's hard to remember the exit
When it's years of to have and to hold
When your foot is still on the pedal
But baby your arms have gone cold

And tonight I woke up in your headlights
And my heart was racing to go
But I know we ain’t got no business
Being back out on the road
