No, nothing good starts in a getaway car

Verse 1:
C C
It was the best of times, the worst of crimes
G G
I struck a match and blew your mind
Dm Dm
But I didn't mean it
F F
And you didn't see it
C C
The ties were black, the lies were white
G G
In shades of gray in candlelight
Dm Dm
I wanted to leave him
F F
I needed a reason

Pre-Chorus:
C C
X marks the spot where we fell apart
G G
He poisoned the well, I was lyin' to myself
Dm Dm
I knew it from the first Old Fashioned, we were cursed
F F
We never had a shot, gunshot in the dark

-Oh!-

Chorus:
C C
You were drivin' the getaway car
G G Dm Dm
We were flyin', but we never get far

Don't pretend it's such a mystery
F F
Think about the place where you first met me
C C
Ridin' in a getaway car
G G Dm Dm
There were sirens in the beat of your heart

I shoulda known I'd be the first to leave
F F C C
Think about the place where you first met me
G G
In a getaway car, oh-oh-oh
Dm Dm
No, they never get far, oh-oh-ahh
F F
No, nothing good starts in a getaway car

Verse 2:
C C
It was the great escape, the prison break
G G
The light of freedom on my face
Dm Dm
But you weren't thinkin'
F F
And I was just drinkin'
C C G G
Well, he was runnin' after us, I was screamin', "go, go, go!"
Dm Dm
But with three of us, honey, it's a sideshow

And a circus ain't a love story
F F
And now we're both sorry -we're both sorry-

Pre-Chorus:
C C
X marks the spot where we fell apart
G G
He poisoned the well, every man for himself
Dm Dm
I knew it from the first Old Fashioned, we were cursed
F F
It hit you like a shot, gunshot to the heart

-Oh!-

Chorus:
C C
You were drivin' the getaway car
G G Dm Dm
We were flyin', but we never get far

Don't pretend it's such a mystery
F F
Think about the place where you first met me
C C
Ridin' in a getaway car
G G Dm Dm
There were sirens in the beat of your heart

I shoulda known I'd be the first to leave
F F C C
Think about the place where you first met me
G G
In a getaway car, oh-oh-oh
Dm Dm
No, they never get far, oh-oh-ahh
F F
No, nothing good starts in a getaway car

Bridge:
D D A A Em Em
We were jet-set, Bonnie and Clyde -oh-oh-
G G
Until I switched to the other side

To the other si-i-i-i-ide
D D A A Em Em
It's no surprise I turned you in -oh-oh-
Gm Gm
'Cause us traitors never win
D D
I'm in a getaway car
A A
I left you in a motel bar
Em Em
Put the money in a bag and I stole the keys
G G
That was the last time you ever saw me

-Oh!-

Chorus:
D D
Drivin' the getaway car
A A Em Em
We were flyin', but we never get far -don't pretend-

Don't pretend it's such a mystery
G G
Think about the place where you first met me
D D
Ridin' in a getaway car
A A Em Em
There were sirens in the beat of your heart -should've known-

I shoulda' known I'd be the first to leave
G G D D
Think about the place where you first met me
A A
In a getaway car, oh-oh-oh
Em Em
No, they never get far, oh-oh-ahh
G G
No, nothing good starts in a getaway car

I was ridin' in a getaway car

I was cryin' in a getaway car

Said goodbye in a getaway car

Ridin' in a getaway car

I was cryin' in a getaway car
