lyrics

Her boyfriend was against it
Said it wasn’t safe
But she yearned to save up money
To go and see the Taj Mahal

Signing up was easy
So she became the first female Uber driver
In their circle of friends

One night she kept on driving
Until the sun came up
And just when she was about
To call it a day
She thought one more ride
Just one more ride

So she picked up this guy in a business suit
He sighed as he sat down
A sound that spoke of honest deep fatigue

What followed was the silence
Of a crisp golden morning
A rare state of timelessness and weightlessness
And unspoken agreement
On nothing in particular

She dropped him off at Watson’s Bay
And made a joke to lighten the mood
Sir don’t jump now will ya
They’ve got cameras everywhere these days
You know what it’s like

But he did
And she never heard about it
