I Threw It All Away.

i drove too fast
suffocated
i opened the window too far and threw
our love onto the side of the road
hoping
knowing i would never again find it
and i drove and i drove

but i turned around when i saw a sign
it said rest stop next five miles
it wasnt a significant sign
of course
most are nothing really
but i missed where my head would rest in your arms
and i turned around

i searched the highway for the love i threw away
knowing i wouldnt find it
hoping i would anyway
but every piece of dirt looked like a piece of us
i shattered what you gave me
but i want you to know
you can find me
looking for the pieces
so i can drive away again
without you still
but whole again
