This song is by Bruce Springsteen and appears on the album Tunnel of Love (1987).

This song has been covered by…
I'm driving a big lazy car, rushing up the highway in the dark
I got one hand steady on the wheel and one hand's trembling over my heart
And it's pounding, baby, like it's gonna bust right on through
And it ain't gonna stop 'til I'm alone again with you

A friend of mine became a father last night
When we spoke, in his voice, I could hear the light
Of the skies and the rivers the timberwolf in the pines
And that great jukebox out on Route 39
They say he travels fastest who travels alone
But tonight I miss my girl, mister, tonight I miss my home

Is it the sound of the leaves left blown by the wayside
That's got me out here on this spooky old highway tonight
Is it the cry of the river with the moonlight shining through
That ain't what scares me, baby, what scares me is losing you

They say if you die in your dreams, you really die in your bed
But, honey, last night I dreamed my eyes rolled straight back in my head
And God's light came shining on through
I woke up in the darkness, scared and breathing and born anew

It wasn't the cold river bottom I felt rushing over me
It wasn't the bitterness of a dream that didn't come true
It wasn't the wind in the grey fields I felt rushing through my arms
No, no, baby, baby it was you

So hold me close, honey, say you're forever mine
And tell me you'll be my lonely valentine
Lonely valentine
