It's alright honey
Sit back and sigh
The world as you know it is ending
So swallow your pride
She left you with a bagful of reasons
More like lies
So buckle up that seatbelt
And kiss your sorry ass goodbye

The only thing bright was the overhead light
Casting shadows on the empty
Spot to my right
This car is getting smaller with
Every breath I take
And I'm thinking maybe
I made a mistake
For letting her go
No, not the girl
Who gave me everything
Her whole fucking world
Who I left without reason
Broke down in shame
I'm beginning to realize
It's me who's to blame
So

Buckle up baby
You're driving way too fast
You took the wrong way
Down a one way track
The speedometer just hit ninety
Now there's no turning back
So sit down
Shut up
And put a
Brick on the gas

She prepared a novel ending
To a heartbreak goodbye
You said you never need someone
Well frankly that's a lie
The wheel isn't turning
But the road is veering wide
One hundred ten, one hundred twenty
Kiss your sorry ass goodbye

Buckle up baby
You're driving way too fast
You took the wrong way
Down a one way track
The speedometer just hit ninety
Now there's no turning back
So sit down
Shut up
And put a
Brick on the gas

The car is burning in the moonlight
But it seems that we've survived
With the clothing on our backs
And what's left of our lives
Your eyes meet mine
And the pressure starts to rise
This bridge is burnt, but it's still smoldering
As we reach for our knives

I cut your seatbelt baby
And the airbag's not that fast
I'll laugh my fuckin' ass off
As you plummet down that path
The speedometer just topped out
Now your world fades to black
So sit down
Shut up
And put a fucking brick
On the gas
On the gas
On the gas
Wow!

    General CommentThanks goes out to Jilaine, aka Beautiful Wonderful. The lyrics are mostly hers, I just tuned em up a little and put em to music. She's as bitterly neurotic about ex's as I am, but luckily, we kick ass at writing lyrics.
