Maybe I should drop you at your door
Leave tonite and say the sun looks low
Anywhere but here
It's three o'clock and we're driving in your car, yeah
You're screaming out the window at the stars
Please don't drop me home

Blame us cause we are who we are
Hate us cause you'll never get that far
And who supposed that you would go
I'm already learned
Enough to know that...

Tell me all the places we can go
You can't behave less fashioned on the road
A long, long time ago

Blame us cause we are who we are
Hate us cause you'll never get that far
Who supposed that you would go
I'm already learned
Enough to know that...

Here, here we are
Sorry to that world, straight and composed
As long as I can do without
I finally found that everybody loves to love you
And you're far away

Could it be we've done something wrong
I make it back to your place before dark
Please don't drop me home, yea
Please don't take me home

Blame us cause we are who we are
Hate us cause you'll never get that far
Who supposed that you would go
I'm already learned
And I'm already learned
Enough to know that....

    General CommentThis song is a cover actually. Originally done by Better Than Ezra from their 1998 disc "How Does Your Garden Grow"

    General Commentthose lyrics are somewhat wrong, the real ones are...

    maybe i should drop you at your door
    and leave tonite and vanish up the shore
    anywhere but here.

    its three o'clock, we're driving in your car
    you're screaming out the window at the stars,
    "please dont drive me home!"

    chorus:
    blame us cause we are who we are
    and hate us cause you'll never get that far
    and who'd supposed that you would go
    i've already learned enough to know

    tell me all the places we could go
    and count the headlights passing on the road
    a long, long time ago

    chorus

    here we are
    foreign to their world
    straight and composed
    your sermons i can do without
    and i finally found
    that everybody loves to love you
    when you're far away

    could it be we've done somethign wrong?
    we'd make it back to your place before dawn
    "please dont take me home..."
    "please dont take me home..."

    chorus

    General Commenti love the better than ezra version, it is the original of course. but howie's is so much more emotion-filled and gives me a different, more personally related feeling when i listen to it. i think its a great cover.

    General CommentI love howie's version of this song so much. It is awesome. This song just reminds me of like those summer nights when you're driving around late at night with somebody special to you, like a best friend or a boyfriend. And like you don't want to go home and it feels like it's you against the world but it's ok b/c you're together.

    General Commentthe lyrics that you missed above where you said 'say the sun looks low' is actually one of howie's trademark lyric switches. i believe he says something like 'leave tonight and sign the senders log'. if u guys are such die hard howie fans you should've jumped right on that.

    General CommentI really like this version better then the better then ezra version, but I have my sentimental reasons. The person who introduced me to Howie Day is who I think of when I listen to this song, and, "Hate us Cause we are who we are" really applies to my... yes.
