James Arthur – Car’s Outside Lyrics

Car’s Outside by James Arthur


I’m packin’ my bags that I didn’t unpack the last time
I’m sayin’, “see you again” so many times it’s becomin’ my type line
But you know the truth
I’d rather hold you
Than tryna catch this flight
So many things I’d rather say
But for now, it’s “goodbye”

You say I’m always leavin’
You, when you’re sleepin’ alone
But the car’s outside
But I don’t wanna go tonight

I’m not gettin’ in the Addison Lee
Unless you pack your bags
You’re comin’ with me
I’m tired of lovin’ from afar
And never being where you are
Close the windows, lock the doors
Don’t wanna leave you anymore

Starin’ at the same four walls in a different hotel
It’s an unfamiliar feelin’, but I know it so well
But you know the truth
I’d rather hold you
Than this mobile in my hand
I guess it’ll do
‘Cause for you, I would run out my phone bill

You say I’m always leavin’
You, when you’re sleepin’ alone
But the car’s outside
But I don’t wanna go tonight

I’m not gettin’ in the Addison Lee
Unless you pack your bags
You’re comin’ with me
I’m tired of lovin’ from afar
And never being where you are
Close the windows, lock the doors
Don’t wanna leave you anymore

Oh, darling, all of the city lights
Never shine as bright as your eyes
I would trade them all for a minute more
But the car’s outside
And he’s called me twice
But he’s gonna have to wait tonight

I’m not gettin’ in the Addison Lee
Unless you pack your bags
You’re comin’ with me
I’m tired of lovin’ from afar
And never being where you are
Close the windows, lock the doors
Don’t wanna leave you anymore
