    Lyrics

    Just take off your clothes and I'll drive you home I said
    Knowing she never could pass on a dare
    And knowing it sounded more desperate than reckless or bold
    I just put it out there cold, too far gone to care

    My eyes on the road, she slid herself down in the seat
    And a vision of paradise swung into view
    Across those five lanes not one driver glanced over to see
    The beauty known only to me, and a big rig or two

    On that freeway the light was receding
    Her beauty, a sight so misleading
    I failed to hear the heart that was beating alone
    On the naked ride home

    With the trace of a smile and that defiant look in her eye
    She hurtled through space in a world of her own
    And turning aside my caress spoke of all that she'd not yet done
    As if I was the doubting one who would have to be shown

    On that freeway the light was receding
    Her beauty, a sight so misleading
    I failed to hear the heart that was beating alone
    On the naked ride home

    She gathered her clothes
    And ran through the yard in the dark
    Up onto the porch like a flash, and inside
    Then one room at a time
    I watched every light in our house come on
    Like the truth that would eventually dawn,
    Forcing me to decide

    But on that freeway the light was receding
    Her beauty, a sight so misleading
    I failed to hear the heart that was beating alone
    On the naked ride home
