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

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

To thank you for all the small favors
Im thinkin now, I hope it doesnt change us
And take us to a time when we were strangers
In a two-station town, you cant 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 cant repay
The debts that I cant repay

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

And though its 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 panes

And I thank you for all the small favors
Im thinkin now, I hope it doesnt change us
And take us to a time when we were strangers
In a two-station town, you cant get the train to slow down

Small favors
Im thinkin now, I hope it doesnt change us
And take us to a time when we were strangers
In a two-station town, you cant 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 cant repay
The debts that I cant repay, debts that I cant repay
