Motel Matches Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Somewhere in the distance
I can hear who shot Sam
This is my conviction that I am an innocent man
Oh, you say, I'm unkind, I'm being as nice as I can

Boys everywhere fumbling with the catches
I struck lucky with motel matches
Falling for you without a second look
Falling out of your open pocket book
Giving you away like motel 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 do
When the light outside changes from red to blue

Boys everywhere fumbling with the catches
I struck lucky with motel matches
Falling for you without a second look
Falling out of your open pocket book
Giving you away like motel matches

Songwriters
COSTELLO, ELVIS
