Lyrics

Taxi

Written By: Philipp Weiss

In my car, I´m driving all night long.
Than I saw you standing there,
wats going on?
Now I see that I was driving,
was only driving,
so long, just to find you now.

Through my town I´m diving,
much to long.
I had no ideia outsidemy car,
whats going on?
Now I see that I was driving,
was only driveing,
so long just to find you now.

Taxi

Written By: Philipp Weiss

In my car, I´m driving all night long.
Than I saw you standing there,
wats going on?
Now I see that I was driving,
was only driving,
so long, just to find you now.

Through my town I´m diving,
much to long.
I had no ideia outsidemy car,
whats going on?
Now I see that I was driving,
was only driveing,
so long just to find you now.

When you came my way,
things changed right away.
I thought I´d better know
what I am doing here.
But now I see
it was right to believe,
I was a fool just to wait too long.

When you came along,
all my hopes were gone.
So your Taxi should bring us
far away from home.
But now I see
it was right to believe,
I was a fool just to wait so long.

Drivin´, drivin´, drivin´,
we´re drivin´ away.
´Till we find the right place to stay.

Drivin´, drivin´, drivin´,
we´re drivin away.
´Till we find the right place to stay.
