No, nothing good starts in a getaway car

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

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

-Oh!-

Chorus:
           CC chord
You were drivin' the getaway car
          GG chord                          DmDm chord
We were flyin', but we never get far

Don't pretend it's such a mystery
 FF chord
Think about the place where you first met me
 CC chord
Ridin' in a getaway car
            GG chord                               DmDm chord
There were sirens in the beat of your heart

I shoulda known I'd be the first to leave
   FF chord                                         CC chord
Think about the place where you first met me
                        GG chord
In a getaway car, oh-oh-oh
                              DmDm chord
No, they never get far, oh-oh-ahh
     FF chord
No, nothing good starts in a getaway car

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

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

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

-Oh!-

Chorus:
           CC chord
You were drivin' the getaway car
          GG chord                          DmDm chord
We were flyin', but we never get far

Don't pretend it's such a mystery
 FF chord
Think about the place where you first met me
 CC chord
Ridin' in a getaway car
            GG chord                               DmDm chord
There were sirens in the beat of your heart

I shoulda known I'd be the first to leave
   FF chord                                         CC chord
Think about the place where you first met me
                        GG chord
In a getaway car, oh-oh-oh
                              DmDm chord
No, they never get far, oh-oh-ahh
     FF chord
No, nothing good starts in a getaway car

 We were jet-set, Bonnie and Clyde -oh-oh-

Until I switched to the other side

To the other si-i-i-i-ide

'Cause us traitors never win

 I'm in a getaway car
