lyrics

I met a girl in Portland and she felt important to me
Brewed me some jasmine tea and we talked about the big one
She followed me to Washington where I found my love in a man I trust you know
Trust don’t come easily to me

And as we made it to Montana I met a woman from Alabama
She broke the law by putting her body first
And as we got to South Dakota I met a widow in a long wool coat
She was looking for a place to call her home

My car is full of people that I picked up on the side of the road
We were going in the same direction I was tired of driving alone

We finally made our way back east where the great Atlantic was at her peak
She was coming down from her summertime heat, and ready to take me in
We stripped down to nothing and now darling ain’t it something to see
Five naked strangers running full force into the blue

Full force and first choice I was using my most desired voice I saw a love I’d never see again
And I could feel my body’s core do everything to hold in store the hope I felt from salt drying on my skin

My car is full of people that I picked up on the side of the road
We were going in the same direction I was tired of driving alone

My car is full of people that I picked up on the side of the road
We were going in the same direction I was tired of driving alone

And I gave in I gave it everything I knew
A fleeting paradise imperfect and true
I’ll keep collecting and protecting all I know
I might not be with you but I’m not quite on my own

Cause my car is full of people that I picked up on the side of the road
We were going in the same direction I was tired of driving alone

My car is full of people that I picked up on the side of the road
We were going in the same direction I was tired of driving alone

My car is full of people that I picked up on the side of the road
We were going in the same direction I was tired of driving alone
