Story Behind the Song

I have been lucky in love and I am grateful. Many people have not and this is what this one is all about. I have an old friend who is in law enforcement and one of his assignments was doing body guard duty on Ollie North during the Iran-Contra hearings. M

Lyrics

Suburban Car Wreck
words & music: Matt Burt
©2006 matt?songs BMI 2007

I don?t want to see you come the dawn, pack up your bags and move along. I?ve had enough of your lies today.
You broke all your promises wrecks on the highway, Mid-western ice storm. I?ve made up my mind. Just go away!

You lie when there?s no one there
Your acquaintance with the truth is pretty spare
I should?ve noticed all the bodies piled in your yard

You never swore an oath that you kept, like collared masochistic pets. You played them like the Marquis De Sade?s cats.
You never knew what the truth was, black was white and red was green. You?d do and say just anything you pleased.

chorus

bridge:
I sat with my heart on my sleeve and now it?s
in pieces, I can?t believe. You slapped my hand
away when I was down.

I?m wiser to your pain I?ve learned how you play your silly games.
I?ll clean my wounds, close and lock up your door.
Your party?s over and done, open the draperies let in some sun.
Air out my life, thank God you?ve gone away!
