                lyric fixes by: Jason Vertucio.


I had sent in a file with just the fills but today decided to include a whole
file instead, so that everyone can see how they fit together. And remember,
my fills don't have any real sense of rhythm to them and are pretty sloppily
done. So I hope this is readable. Enjoy! -Jason


INTRO

Arr. for one guitar: Em (022003), G (32003), D (xx0233), Em (022003)

VERSE

Em                           G
 Just three miles, from the rest stop
D                     Em
    And she slams on the breaks
Em                          G   
She said I tried to be but I'm not
D                                         Em
    And could you please collect your things

PRE-CHORUS

               D
Well I don't wanna be cold, I don't wanna be cruel
       Em              
But I gotta find more than what's happenin' with you
                C                   (fill 1)
And if you would open up the door

Fill 1.

CHORUS

         G                                         
She said, "While you were sleeping
       D                                                        
I was listening to the radio and wondering what you're dreaming
Em               D                  C 
when it came to mind that I didn't care."
              G
And I thought, "Hell if it's over
       D  
I had better end it quick or I could lose my nerve
        Em         D        A   
Are you listening?  Can you hear me?
            C        (fill 2)
Have you forgotten?"

VERSE (same; add fills)
Just 3 miles from the rest stop
                               (fill3)
And my mouth's too dry to rage
The light was shining from the radio
                            (fill3a)
I could barely see her face

Fill 3.					Fill 3a.

PRE-CHORUS
But she knew all the words that I never had said
She knew the crumbled up promise of this
                                             (fill1a)
broken down man, and as I opened up my door

Fill 1a.

CHORUS
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, I had better end it quick or I could
lose my nerve. Are you listening? Can you hear me?"
