Getaway Car CHORDS

No, nothing good starts in a getaway car

It Cwas the best of times

The worst of crimes

I struGck a match and blew your mind

But I didn't meanDm it

And you didn’t seeF it


The tiesC were black, the lies were white

In shadGes of gray in candlelight

I wanted to leaveDm him

I needed a reasFon


* X mCarks the spot where we fell apart

He Gpoisoned the well, I was lyin' to myself

I knewDm it from the first Old Fashioned

We were cursed

We neveFr had a shot, gunshot in the dark

(Oh!)


** You were driviCn' the getaway car

We were flyiGn’, but we never get far

Don'Dmt pretend it's such a mystery

ThinFk about the place where you first met me

RidinC' in a getaway car

There were sireGns in the beat of your heart

I shoulDmda known I'd be the first to leave

ThinkF about the place where you first met me

CIn a getaway car, oh-oh-oh

GNo, they never get far, oh-oh-ahh

DmNo, nothiFng good starts in a getaway car


It Cwas the great escape, the prison break

The lightG of freedom on my face

But you weren't thinDmkin'

And I was just drinFkin'


Well, he Cwas runnin’ after us,

I was screamin’, "go, go, go!" G

But with three of us, honey, it's a sideshow

AndDm a circus ain’t a love story

And now we're bothF sorry (we're both sorry)

( REPEAT * , ** )

We Dwere jet-set, BonAnie and Clyde (oh-oh)

UnEmtil I switched to the other side

To Gthe other si-i-i-i-ide

It's Dno surprise I turnAed you in (oh-oh)

'CauEmse us traitors nevGer win

I'm Din a getaway car

I lAeft you in a motel bar

Put the moneEmy in a bag and I stole the keys

ThatG was the last time you ever saw me

(Oh!)


You were driviDn' the getaway car

We were flyiAn’, but we never get far

Don'Emt pretend it's such a mystery

ThinGk about the place where you first met me

RidinD' in a getaway car

There were sireAns in the beat of your heart

I shoulEmda known I'd be the first to leave

ThinkG about the place where you first met me

DIn a getaway car, oh-oh-oh

ANo, they never get far, oh-oh-ahh

EmNo, nothiGng good starts in a getaway car


I was ridinD' in a getaway car

Getaway Car LYRICS
No, nothing good starts in a getaway car
It was the best of times
The worst of crimes
I struck 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
In shades of gray in candlelight
I wanted to leave him
I needed a reason

* X marks the spot where we fell apart
He poisoned the well, I was lyin' to myself
I knew it from the first Old Fashioned
We were cursed
We never had a shot, gunshot in the dark
(Oh!)

** You were drivin' the getaway car
We were flyin’, but we never get far
Don't pretend it's such a mystery
Think about the place where you first met me
Ridin' in a getaway car
There were sirens in the beat of your heart
I shoulda known I'd be the first to leave
Think about the place where you first met me
In a getaway car, oh-oh-oh
No, they never get far, oh-oh-ahh
No, nothing good starts in a getaway car

It was the great escape, the prison break
The light of freedom on my face
But you weren't thinkin'
And I was just drinkin'


Well, he was runnin’ after us,
I was screamin’, "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)
( REPEAT * , ** )
We were jet-set, Bonnie and Clyde (oh-oh)
Until I switched to the other side
To the other si-i-i-i-ide
It's no surprise I turned you in (oh-oh)
'Cause us traitors never win
I'm in a getaway car
I left you in a motel bar
Put the money in a bag and I stole the keys
That was the last time you ever saw me
(Oh!)

You were drivin' the getaway car
We were flyin’, but we never get far
Don't pretend it's such a mystery
Think about the place where you first met me
Ridin' in a getaway car
There were sirens in the beat of your heart
I shoulda known I'd be the first to leave
Think about the place where you first met me
In a getaway car, oh-oh-oh
No, they never get far, oh-oh-ahh
No, nothing good starts in a getaway car

I was ridin' in a getaway car
I was cryin' in a getaway car
I was dyin' in a getaway car
Said goodbye in a getaway car
Ridin' in a getaway car
I was cryin' in a getaway car
I was dyin' in a getaway car
Said goodbye in a getaway car
