in the dark a million gems stand out
dancing and burning into my eyes
the neon words marking burger joints
the headlights and tail lights streaming
and reflectors on the trucks screaming careful!
and the reflectors on the trucks screaming watch out!
in the passenger seat you cry and scream and yell
I just know that in a few moments
you'll seize the wheel and all that's solid
will be dashed on the side of that truck
with the shiny reflectors screaming careful!
with all the shiny reflectors screaming watch out!
we're taking a magical ride to the shiny squeaky place
with bright lights and nurses and doctors and pills
but we're on a dark highway and the trucks close in
all over the dark highway I watch the trucks close in
with their glinting reflectors screaming careful!
with their shining reflectors screaming watch out!
somehow I thought I could help you
you were the scattered pieces of a childs jigsaw puzzle
and my clumsy hands put the pieces upside down and over
somehow I thought I could fix you up real clever
reach out and put humpty back together again
reach out and put mommy back together again
