​The Taxi Ride

This song is by Melissa McClelland and appears on the album Thumbelina's One Night Stand (2006).

The taxi ride was dreaful, I kept staring straight ahead
I was willing him to smoke with all the windows closed
Your smell was tangled in my hair
I left you all alone
Waiting for the end of the world

And surely I'll succeed in breaking someone's heart
Most likely my own has already fallen apart
Now it's getting light outside
He wonders where I've been
And whose scent I am wearing on my skin

I don't love anyone but you
This is the only lie, it's true
I don't love anyone but you
This is the only lie, it's true
And I'm telling it to you

I lose myself from time to time, amid the city streets
As you honorably search for me I silently retreat
Eventually I come to rest my heavy head
I breathe a little slower
To hold familiar hands

And surely I'll succeed in bringing all of this down
I am powerful and careless as I saunter off to war
And how could I truly know the devastation of battle
When I have not even lost before

I don't love anyone but you
This is the only lie, it's true
I don't love anyone but you
This is the only lie, it's true
And I'm telling it to you

Well I pay the fare, I pay the price
And I tiptoe through the house
I wouldn't want to wake you from this dream you're having now
I wait till it's unbearable then slap you in the face
Just look at this, just look at me
I'm a goddamn disgrace

I don't love anyone but you
This is the only lie, it's true
I don't love anyone but you
This is the only lie, it's true
And I'm telling it to you
