This is as lonely and cold as the drive home gets
This script is getting tired and old, so let's
Forget the lines we all rehearse
Skip the intro into the verse
We all know
Turn up the stereo
Until we officially disturb someone's peace
Because we can't find our own

I caught you twice before you hit the ground
And you only wanted me to put you down

And I apologize for how cliche these feelings are
All while knowing these words will read like a hallmark card
Just something to make you smile
But nothing special or worthwhile
Enough to get stuck in your head
And they'd warrant a response at least
But it's not quite worth the elbow grease
It's just easier to say 'we're just friends'

This is as hopeless as a romantic can be
The same routine: try and fail, don't get the girl, can't fall asleep
Forget the strings that are pulling on these keys
Just know that it sounds sweet
You shouldn't have to think about those kinds of things

I drove for miles just to make sure you weren't alone
And you only wanted me to drive myself home

And I apologize for how cliche these feelings are
All while knowing these words will read like a hallmark card
Just something to make you smile
But nothing special or worthwhile
Enough to get stuck in your head
And they'd warrant a response at least
But it's not quite worth the elbow grease
It's just easier to say 'we're just friends'

So after all this ribbon and words in print
You will take it down, and I still won't quit
Cause after you've given me the slip
At the end of the slide, my love will still exist

So after all the phone calls you apparently missed
If I'm not on your list, well I still won't quit
And if you comb the beach til there's no rocks to skip
At the end of the night, your window will still get hit
