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

But on that freeway the light was receding
Her beauty, a sight so misleading
But 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

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