Black Taxi

Bryson/McDowall/Balfe/Mulhearne

While I was standing in the room
I felt some pleasure and a pain
I want to share it all and soon

A taxi pulls up to the kerb
Some shifting thoughts lay undisturbed
I get in thinking what I might do

Uncertainty twisting your desire
I come to you in black taxis
And wish you inside
I wish you inside

And moving slowly to your home
To give you all that is your own
It will be soon that you will know

Just for a moment I'm displaced
But when I look in into your face
I will see all that I need to

Uncertainty twisting your desire
I come to you in black taxis
And wish you inside
I wish you inside

Dark thoughts are closer than before
As I get out closing the door
Bringing gifts of fear to you

I won't be long before I show
That fear is all that's left to go
For here the day will come to a close

Uncertainty twisting your desire
I come to you in black taxis
And wish you inside
I wish you inside
