Motel Matches

by Brett Matthew West

Motel Matches

It's so hard to tell the story
of this new love that you found
Leavin' me to wonder
why my feet have never left the ground

I can see that dress I bought you
fallin' slowly to the floor
Neon lights and heartaches
can't hide what you're doin' any more

Is he the one you wanted
when I gave myself to you
Lately all I hear you say
is you and I are through

There's a time that I remember
Help me to understand
You couldn't wait to be my woman
Now I can't be your man

Our show down scene is over
I know where you have been
Love that lasts forever
is gone now with the wind

You think that I don't notice
I never have you home
While you're out there ridin' rainbows
I spend all my time alone

Don't tell me you still love me
I can't hear you any more
Love you took for granted
walked right out the door

Your memory surrounds me
Cryin' time will soon begin
I need you here beside me
and you're still on the town with him

Well, you can take these motel matches
and strike'em in the wind
One by one they prove to me
you won't be comin' back again

The flame of love between us
has never burned so bright
These motel matches that I hold here
are the only love I have with me tonight
