Motel Matches - Elvis Costello

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 of an emergency
though your mind is full of love
in your eyes there is a big conceit
and you know what I do
when the light outside changes from red to blue
