You're right it's getting late and we should probably go
Drive our quiet cars back to our quiet homes
But since it's friday night and we're both still alone
Could I just try?
To change your mind

The bartender packs up without a word
It's been an hour now since drinks stopped being served
But I'm not tired and still working up the nerve so I can try
To change your mind

So what can I do? To make you choose to
Be more than friends,
More than friends in quiet cars

The open sign it flickers once then dies
All the chairs are up except for ours on either side
of the table with the shorter legs on the left hand side but I don't mind
I let it slide
No I never mind, I let things slide

I let things slide
So slide away...

It's worked a thousand times, at least in my own head
When I plan it out, as I lay alone in bed
How I'd take your hand and bring you home instead
but then I, I change my mind
I let it slide, and I change my mind

Cause I can't lose you
I'd rather choose to, just stay friends
Just stay friends in quiet cars.

You're right it's getting late and we should probably go
Drive our quiet cars, back to our quiet homes.
