Drive-in Movie Lyrics

Well the phone broke the silence
Like the screaming of a siren
And I just sat beside it
Took another drag on my cigarette
I swore I'd never smoke again
And I watched it rain
I knew that it was you
Calling just to prove that you were strong as you could be
And you get along without me any time, and any way

I just stare through the door screen
Watch the cars come down the pike
Their lights against the sky
Like a Drive-In movie
On a country road
That I seen before
Never like the first time

Blue lights on the dashboard
Songs on the radio-o
And how were you to ever know
How much I loved you so
You thought that I was only dreaming
What a surprise it must have been
To realize I was one of them
Not a king, but just a man
Not an angel
Hardly a friend
And not someone you could believe in I just stare through the door screen
And watch the cars come down the pike
Their lights against the sky
Like a Drive-In movie
On a country road
That I seen before
Never like the first time

And out across the rugged hills
The dust blows, the wind wails
Sun bleached skulls and empty shells
Broken men with tales to tell
And I would be one of them
And how are we to ever know
How far it's gonna go
You fall in love and that's the road
You travel till you can't no more
And then you just turn around again

And I just stare through the door screen
Watch the cars come down the pike
Their lights against the sky
Like a Drive-In movie
On a country road
That I seen before
Never like the first time
