Barenaked Ladies - Tonight Is The Night I Fell Asleep At The Wheel

BARENAKED LADIES


Tonight Is The Night I Fell Asleep At The Wheel Lyrics

Driving home to be with you
The highway's dividing, the city's in view
As usual, I'm almost on time
You're the last thing that's on my mind
I wish I could tell you the way that I feel
But tonight is the night I fell asleep at the wheel

No commotion, no screaming brakes
Most of it's over before I awake
From the ceiling, my coffee cup drips
While out my window, the horizon does flips
The worst part was hitting the ground
Not the feeling so much as the sound
Can't help but wonder if all this is real
'Cause tonight is the night I fell asleep at the wheel

Rubberneck traffic and passersby
And Slow Motion Walter, the fire engine guy
Stand around with their mouths open wide
I heard some idiot ask if someone's inside
With the Jaws of Life they tried and they tried
Nobody here can know how I feel
'Cause tonight is the night I fell asleep at the wheel

I guess it's over now
'Cause I've never seen so much
Never seen so much, never seen so much
Never seen so much, never seen so much
I guess it's over now
'Cause I've never seen so much
Never seen so much, never seen so much blood

In all the confusion there's something serene
I'm just a posthumous part of the scene
Now, I'm floating above, looking in
As the radio blares and wheels spin
I can see my face slump with a grin
And you, you're the last thing on my mind
You're the last thing on my mind
You're the last thing on my mind
You're the last thing on my mind



HIDDEN SUN (hidden track)

Suddenly, things become unsound
Stumbling on the shakey ground
Given arrows to shoot tornados down, shoot them down
To the ground

Saw a falling leaf, a good luck, jump to grab
Much to our surprise, a butterfly
And it sunk in this induration, induration
In our lives

CHORUS
Inside ourselves
A hidden sun that burns and burns
It never does any harm to anyone

Shivering madly in the dark
Like an animal abandoned in the car park
And she held me, and the she showed me
The beauty of the human heart

CHORUS
CHORUS

Anyone
Oo, anyone
Hidden sun
(Sun, sun, sun)
Hidden sun
Oo (sun, sun, sun)
(Sun, sun, sun)
(Sun, sun, sun)
(Sun, sun, sun)
(Sun, sun, sun)
