Small Favors
Written by C. Collingwood / A. Schlesinger


From the Fountains of Wayne album Out-Of-State Plates

I have to sit you down
Let me tell you what itís all about
Cause Iíve been carrying a torch around 
And Iíve forgotten how to snuff it out

And you have been unkind
And thatís a matter I cannot ignore
You have to skirt around the truth sometimes
But itís time I told you what I came here for

To thank you for all the small favors
Iím thinkiní now I hope it doesnít change us
And take us to a time when we were strangers
In a two-station town
You canít get the train to slow down

Small favors
Oh to you as sure as she was honest
And now do you remember when you promised
To forgive me someday
The debts that I canít repay
The debts that I canít repay

And I cannot forget
You looked at me as if Iíd lost a bet
And I hadnít opened up my big mouth yet
And I thought of crawling back into the plane

And though itís sad to tell
I still remember how the dry-eye felt
Across the curtains in the cheap hotel
Lit-up dust clouds in the window pane

And I thank you for all the small favors
Iím thinkiní now I hope it doesnít change us
And take us to a time when we were strangers
In a two-station town
You canít get the train to slow down

Small favors
Iím thinkiní now I hope it doesnít change us
And take us to a time when we were strangers
In a two-station town
You canít get the train to slow down

Small favors
Oh to you as sure as she was honest
Now do you remember when you promised
Forgive me someday
The debts that I canít repay
The debts that I canít repay
The debts that I canít repay
