Wrecked Lyrics

Well lookin back when I met you, we were shiny, we were
brand new
A couple kids who'd never been to town
It was a quart of beer, a paper sack, leave a penny on
the railroad track
You let me steal a kiss from you when no one was around

Hangin out, hangin on to the night fore it was gone
Like we'd never see that parking lot again
We were sneakin in the picture show and pourin' bourbon
in our coke
Aw and never seein' how the movie ends
And I thought that they might ride off in the sun

Chorus:
But you wrecked it all, you wrecked my heart
You wrecked our house and you wrecked my car
Left all the pieces scattered on the lawn
Caught up in your headlights
Well I was blindsided in plain sight
I'll salvage what I may when you're gone but you
wrecked it all

Well on down the road we built our home out of
bedsheets and Styrofoam
Hopin that the wind might never blow
And it's love or fight, everyday like a Tennessee
Williams play
Not knowin how it ended when we signed on for the show
And I hoped that we might ride off in the sun

Chorus

Life ain't what it was back then, someone smashed the
windshield in
Well you never see it comin till it's knockin out your
teeth
And it's the same Saturday, brand new Fords and
Chevrolet's
Lined up like they never saw the likes of you and me
And I watched them as they drove off in the sun
