Liner Notes: 

So when the girl spends all night in a club trying to hook up with Mr Right. She ironically finds him in the taxi driver driving her home.

Lyrics: 

Saw those warm eyes in your mirror
When you drove me home
A while after dinner
Was content being your last fare
Smile was not the drink
I was glad I was there
Had spent hours looking for that spark
that could start a fire
Help me see in the dark
Then sat in the leather back seat
hoped I still looked good
Ripe, young, almost too sweet

Look back here
Taxi driver
Signals are clear
I'm arriving
Look back here
Taxi driver
I'm In smart gear
Heart surviving

Could almost stroke your short black hair
Your eyes on the road
Couldn't see my wide stare
I grabbed the seat with a passion
Gently shook my hair
I feared I was crashing

Look back here
Taxi driver
Signals are clear
I'm arriving
Look back here
Taxi driver
I'm In smart gear
Heart surviving

I went on a ride with a guy
Who turned my insides upside down
As we drove and the time went by
It was a treat to drive round town

Look back here
Taxi driver
Signals are clear
I'm arriving
Look back here
Taxi driver
I'm In smart gear
Heart surviving

Saw those warm eyes in your mirror
When you drove me home
A while after dinner

Taxi driver
Taxi driver

Really well written lyrics that tell this story! Being a bit of a cynic, rather than irony I see her as desperate...last chance/last dance! I like how you don't resolve this. Maybe it ends up being only a taxi ride? Nice work.

Nice to see a positive song about taxi drivers - some of them can be utter creeps
very interesting angle you've taken with this one
i also really like the chorus - the heart surviving is a very intriguing line!

A great story here! There is something both hopeful and desperate about these lyrics, and I like that they're sort of open-ended to allow some different interpretations. I could see this working equally well as a classic country tune or a modern pop song a la Taylor Swift.
