Lyrics

Verse 1
We fell in love on Geary Boulevard, aye
With the sun coming down on the front of my car, aye
Felt something like, something like an 80s movie, yeah
Felt something, like something like you’d never lose me, yeah

Pre-chorus
So why we gotta check into the heartbreak hotel?
Oh hell, you know me better than myself
I don’t wanna go home, no way without you
Ain’t gonna be good for my health
And every roadmap leads straight to your heart
So I can’t leave you tonight
No, not tonight

Chorus
’Cause who’s gonna drive you home (’Cause who’s gonna drive you home)
When you’ve had a crazy day? (When you’ve had a crazy day?)
Who’s gonna dry your eyes (Who’s gonna dry your eyes)
When your tears fall like the rain?
Tears fall like the rain

Verse 2
I think we lived in a homemade video, aye
But it’s like you and I rewind to the lowest low, aye
I always thought, always thought we could reverse it, yeah
I always thought, always thought we could be perfect, yeah

Pre-chorus
So why we gotta check into the heartbreak hotel?
Oh hell, you know me better than myself
I don’t wanna go home, no way, without you
Ain’t gonna be good for my health
And every roadmap leads straight to your heart
So I can’t leave you tonight
No, not tonight

Chorus
’Cause who’s gonna drive you home (’Cause who’s gonna drive you home)
When you’ve had a crazy day? (When you’ve had a crazy day?)
Who’s gonna dry your eyes (Who’s gonna dry your eyes)
When your tears fall like the rain?
Tears fall like the rain

Post-chorus
So who’s gonna drive you home?
Who’s gonna drive you home?
And I’m eighty miles from going insane
I’ve been missing, missing those days
So baby, let me love you, ooh woah

Bridge
We fell in love on Geary Boulevard
We fell in deep, we fell so hard
Maybe one more cruise will make it alright
While you hold my hand from the passenger’s side, yeah

Chorus
’Cause who’s gonna drive you home (Baby, who’s gonna drive you home)
When you’ve had a crazy day? (When you had a crazy day?)
Who’s gonna dry your eyes (Tell me who’s gonna dry your eyes)
When your tears fall like the rain? (Tears fall like the rain)
Tears fall like the rain (Tears fall like the rain)

Post-chorus
So who’s gonna drive you home? (Who’s gonna drive you home? Who’s gonna drive you home?)
Who’s gonna drive you home? (Who’s gonna drive you home? Who’s gonna drive you home?)
And I’m eighty miles from going insane (I’m eighty miles)
I’ve been missing, missing those days (I’ve been missin’ those days)
So baby, let me love you, ooh, woah

Outro
So who’s gonna drive you home?
