GETAWAY CAR

[intro]
No, nothing good starts in a getaway car

[1]
It was the best of times, the worst of crimes
I stroke a match and blew your mind
But I didn't mean it
And you didn't see it
The ties were black, the lies were white
The shades of grey in candlelight
I wanted to leave him
I needed a reason

[pre-chorus]
X marks the spot where we fell apart
He poisoned the well, I was lying to myself
I knew it from the first old fashioned, we were cursed
We never had a shotgun, shot in the dark

[chorus]
You were driving the getaway car
We were flying, but we never get far
Don't pretend it's such a mystery
Think about the place where you first met me
Riding in a getaway car
There were sirens in the beat of your heart
Should've known I'd be the first to leave
Think about the place where you first met me
In a getaway car, oh
No, we never get far, oh
No, nothing good starts in a getaway car

[2]
It was the great escape, the prison break
The light of freedom on my face
But you weren't thinking
And I was just drinking
While he was running after us, I was screaming "go, go, go!"
But with three of us, honey, it's a sideshow
And a circus ain't a love story
And now we're both sorry (we're both sorry)

[pre-chorus]
X marks the spot where we fell apart
He poisoned the well, every man for himself
I knew it from the first old fashioned, we were cursed
It hit you like a shotgun, shot in the heart

[chorus]
You were driving the getaway car
We were flying, but we never get far
Don't pretend it's such a mystery
Think about the place where you first met me
Riding in a getaway car
There were sirens in the beat of your heart
Shoul've known I'd be the first to leave
Think about the place where you first met me
In a getaway car, oh
No, we never get far, oh
No, nothing good starts in a getaway car

[Bridge]
We were jet-set Bonnie and Clyde
Until I switched to the other side
To the other side
It's no surprise I turned you in
'Cause us traitors never win

I'm in a getaway car
I left you in a motel bar
Put the money in the bag and I stole the keys
That was the last time you ever saw me

[chorus]
Driving the getaway car
We were flying, but we never get far (don't pretend)
Don't pretend it's such a mystery
Think about the place where you first met me
Riding in a getaway car
There were sirens in the beat of your heart
Should've known I'd be the first to leave
Think about the place where you first met me
In a getaway car, oh
No, we never get far, oh
No, nothing good starts in a getaway car

[outro]
I was riding in a getaway car
I was crying in a getaway car
I was dying in a getaway car
Said goodbye in a getaway car

Riding in a getaway car
I was crying in a getaway car
I was dying in a getaway car
Said goodbye in a getaway car
