  • First time they took me down
    I went down swinging
    Second time, I didn't put up a fight
    I take the keys down from the hook
    I pick you up from work
    We stick to the straight roads up the West Coast
    And I feel a part of me slide

    When the trucks drive by
    I feel 'em sway us side to side
    You're underneath a blanket on the backseat
    I'm going station to station on the dial
    Don't wanna be pretty like a girl
    I think I'm pretty much your boy
    You wear a baseball cap all the time
    And keep a knife in the passenger door

    Sleeping behind the wheel
    Pulled over on the freeway
    4Runner, stolen plates, long, long gone
    Take off a shift for me
    I'm waiting down the street
    Take all the time you want to come, come, come

    Last time we did it
    We both felt it hit different
    Lying down across the front seats
    Used to leave you weightless and listless
    When the trucks drive by
    I feel 'em sway us side to side
    I used to keep you up all night
    You used to drive when I got tired

    Sleeping behind the wheel
    Pulled over on the freeway
    4Runner, stolen plates, long, long gone
    Take off a shift for me
    I'm waiting down the street
    Take all the time you want to come, come, come

    I think we're getting close
    I think we're getting closer
    We got this 4runner
    And we been good together

    I think we're getting close
    I think we're getting closer
    We got this 4runner
    And we been good together

    Sleeping behind the wheel
    Pulled over on the freeway
    4Runner, stolen plates, long, long gone
    Take off a shift for me
    I'm waiting down the street
    Take all the time you want to come, come, come

    (whoa-wee, woo)
    (whoa-wee, woo)

    Sleeping behind the wheel (whoa-wee, woo)
    Pulled over on the freeway (whoa-wee, woo)
    4Runner, stolen plates, long, long gone
    Take off a shift for me
    I'm waiting down the street
    Take all the time you want to come, come, come

    Sleeping behind the wheel
    Pulled over on the freeway (whoa-wee, woo)
    4Runner, stolen plates, long, long gone
    Take off a shift for me (whoa-wee, woo) Writer/s: Brad Oberhofer, Rostam Batmanglij
