Motel Matches  Elvis Costello

[C]Somewhere in the distance I can hear "[F]Who Shot Sam?"
[G]This is my conviction, that I am an [C]innocent man
[C]Though you [C]say [D]I'm [E] [F]unkind
[F]I'm being as nice as I can
[Am]Boys everywhere, fumbling with the catches
[Am]I struck lucky with motel [F]matches
[G]Falling for you without a [F]second look
[G]Falling out of your open [F]pocketbook
[G]Giving you [F]away like motel [C]matches
I wake with the siren in an emergency
Though your mind is full of love
In your eyes there is a vacancy
And you know what I'll do
When the light outside changes from red to blue
