Standing in the rain, cab comes into view
Asked me where am I goin’ to
Running for so long, been gone too many nights
And my heart has paid the price

This ain’t heaven
And this ain’t the life I've bargained for, oh no
My reason for living isn’t here inside this car
You know I gotta get back to you

Cab driver, take me home
Spent too much time away, too much time alone
Cab driver, take me home
Spent too much time away from my baby, oh yeah

I need familiar streets to show me that you’re near
Feeling like a stranger here
Oh, does the mirror show the miles on my face
Am I goin’ any place?

This ain’t heaven
But this ain’t the life I was hopin’ for, oh no, oh no
Reason for living sure ain’t here inside this car
You know I’ve gotta get back to you

Cab driver, take me home
Spent too much time away, too much time alone
Cab driver, take me home
Spent too much time away from my baby, oh yeah

I need to see the look on your face
A kiss from your lips, oh, the taste, baby
Nothing waiting for me but a lonely room
Girl, I’ve gotta get back to you, baby, soon

Cab driver, take me home
Spent too much time away, too much time alone
Cab driver, take me home
Spent too much time away from your baby

Oh, cab driver, take me home
I've spent too much time, take me home
Cab driver, take me home
Gotta get back to my baby
