The Guy That Drives Her Home

Chorus
I’m the guy who drives her home
when her options don’t pan out
when she’s lonely and alone
I ‘m the guy that drives her home 
 
Piano interlude over the chorus structure
 
Verse
She has had too much to drink
so how could I let her go?
Get in her car take her chances 
swerving down these winding roads
but sometimes, I do resent her
how she just can’t see inside
see the man that’s always loved her
see the love that I must hide
 
Repeat Chorus
 
Oh, and some people they would say
I should step forward and be brave
but I can’t risk it when I know
I’d see that pity on her face
knowing she doesn’t want to hurt me
and so, its better to pretend
and so, I’ll gather up her car keys
and I will drive her home again
 
Repeat Chorus
 
Piano interlude over the chorus structure.
 
I’m the guy that drives her home
oh, because she see me still
the greatest friend she’s ever known
just the guy that drives her home
though I am lonely and alone
I’m just the guy that drives her home
