How To Play

INTRO
N.C
No, nothing good starts in a getaway car
 
 
VERSE 1
          C
It was the best of times, the worst of crimes
  G
I struck a match and blew your mind
             Dm
But I didn't mean it
               F
And you didn't see it
    C
The ties were black, the lies were white
   G
In shades of gray in candlelight
            Dm
I wanted to leave him
           F
I needed a reason
 
 
PRE CHORUS
C
X marks the spot where we fell apart
G
He poisoned the well, I was lyin' to myself
  Dm
I knew it from the first Old Fashioned, we were cursed
F
We never had a shotgun shot in the dark
 
(Oh!)
 
 
CHORUS
           C
You were driving the getaway car
          G                          Dm
We were flying, but we never get far
 
Don't pretend it's such a mystery
 F
Think about the place where you first met me
 C
Ridin' in a getaway car
            G                               Dm
There were sirens in the beat of your heart
 
I shoulda known I'd be the first to leave
   F                                         C
Think about the place where you first met me
                        G
In a getaway car, oh-oh-oh
                              Dm
No, they never get far, oh-oh-ahh
     F
No, nothing good starts in a getaway car
 
 
VERSE 2
          C
It was the great escape, the prison break
    G
The light of freedom on my face
                Dm
But you weren't thinkin'
               F
And I was just drinkin'
      C                                                  G
Well, he was running after us, I was screamin', "go, go, go!"
                                             Dm
But with three of us, honey, it's a sideshow
 
And a circus ain't a love story
              F
And now we're both sorry (we're both sorry)
 
 
PRE CHORUS
C
X marks the spot where we fell apart
G
He poisoned the well, every man for himself
    Dm
I knew it from the first Old Fashioned, we were cursed
   F
It hit you like a shotgun, shot to the heart
 
(Oh!)
 
 
CHORUS
           C
You were driving the getaway car
          G                          Dm
We were flying, but we never get far
 
Don't pretend it's such a mystery
 F
Think about the place where you first met me
 C
Ridin' in a getaway car
            G                               Dm
There were sirens in the beat of your heart
 
I shoulda known I'd be the first to leave
   F                                         C
Think about the place where you first met me
                        G
In a getaway car, oh-oh-oh
                              Dm
No, they never get far, oh-oh-ahh
     F
No, nothing good starts in a getaway car
 
 
 
BRIDGE
D                 A                    Em
 We were jet-set, Bonnie and Clyde (oh-oh)
                              G
Until I switched to the other side
 
To the other si-i-i-i-ide
D                   A                 Em
 It's no surprise I turned you in (oh-oh)
                   Gm
'Cause us traitors never win
D
 I'm in a getaway car
A
 I left you in a motel bar
        Em
Put the money in a bag and I stole the keys
G
That was the last time you ever saw me
 
(Oh!)
 
 
CHORUS
  D
Drivin' the getaway car
        A                                      Em
We were flying, but we never get far (don't pretend)
 
Don't pretend it's such a mystery
G
Think about the place where you first met me
D
Ridin' in a getaway car
            A                                          Em
There were sirens in the beat of your heart (should've known)
 
I shoulda' known I'd be the first to leave
G                                          D
Think about the place where you first met me
                        A
In a getaway car, oh-oh-oh
                              Em
No, they never get far, oh-oh-ahh
    G
No, nothing good starts in a getaway car

Said goodbye in a getaway car

Ridin' in a getaway car
