I must look just like a fool

Here in the middle of the road
standing there in your rearview
and getting soaked to the bone
this land is flat as it is mean
a man can see for a hundred miles
so im still praying I might see
the glow of a brake light.

As I watched the car drive out of site I started to cry. How could he leave me? I knew that he would not turn around. My Angel, my love. It started to rain, just the way that I was feeling

But your wheels just turn,
down the road ahead
If it hurts at all
you aint showed it yet
I keep a lookin' for
the slightest sign that you might miss
what you left behind
I know there's nothing stopping you now
but I'd settle for a slowdown.

How could this not affect you? You just drove on and on. The space between us increasing slowly.

I held on longer then I should
Leaving you might change your mind
those bright lights of Hollywood
would fade in time.

When you told me that you were leaving I should have given up then. I knew how serious you got, and when you set your mind on something you could not be persuaded otherwise. You wanted me to have a normal life, but that would never happen. I was the Slayer god dammit.

But your wheels just turn
down the road ahead
If it hurts at all
you aint showed it yet
I keep a lookin' for
the slightest sign
that you might miss
what you left behind
I know there's nothing stopping you now
but I'd settle for a slowdown.

As I watched you go farther and farther away, I started to cry and cry. How could you leave me? You were my everything. Nothing you ever said or did could make me love you less. Not even this. In fact this only made me cry harder because you were so noble.

But your wheels just turn
down the road ahead
if it hurts at all
you aint showed it yet
your just a tiny dot on that horizon line come on tap those brakes
baby just one time
I know there's nothing stopping you now
Im not asking you to turn back around

As the lights started to fade I realized that the chance of me seeing you again where so slim. I wish that this was different and the chances of it ever happening were null. I gave you might heart and you never gave it back. And with that I fell on the floor and sobbed. I sobbed until there was nothing left. My heart was gone; broken and scattered on the wind. Why not let the rest of me go with it?

I'd settle for a slowdown
come on just slow down
I'd settle for a slow down.

And with that the rain poured and the glow of the lights on your car faded and I knew that you were never coming back.
