Bust Your Windows
Glee Cast Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I bust the windows out your car
And it didn't mend my broken heart
I'll probably always have these ugly scars
But right now I don't care about that part.
I bust the windows out your car
After I saw you looking right at her
I didn't wanna but I took my turn
I'm glad I did it cause you had to learn

I must admit it helped a little bit
To think of how you'd felt when you saw it
I didn't know that I had that much strength
But I'm glad you see what happens when
You see you can't just play with peoples feelings
Tell them you love them and don't mean it
You'll probably say that it was juvenile
But I think that I deserve to smile ha, ha, ha, ha,

I bust the windows out ya car
You know I did it cause I left my mark
Wrote my initials with the crowbar
And then I drove off into the dark

I bust the windows out ya car ha,
You should feel lucky that was all I did
After five whole years of this bullshit
Gave you all of me and you played with it

I must admit it helped a little bit
To think of how you'd feel when you saw it
I didn't know that I had that much strength
But I'm glad you see what happens when
You see you can't just play with peoples feelings
Tell them you love them but don't mean it
You probably say that it was juvenile
But I think that I deserve to smile
Bust windows out your car
But it don't come back to my broken heart
You could neva' feel I how I felt that day
Until it happens baby you don't know pain
Ooh Yeah I did it (yeah I did it)
You should know it (you should know it)
I ain't sorry (I ain't sorry)
You deserved it (you deserved it)
After what you did to me (after what you did)
You deserve it (you deserve it)
I ain't sorry no no oh (I ain't sorry)
You broke my heart so I broke you car
You caused me pain (you caused me pain)
(So I did the same)
Even though what you did to me was much worse
I had to do something to make you hurt
Oh but why am I still crying
Why am I the one who's still crying
Oh oh you really hurt me baby
You really, you really hurt me baby

Hey hey hey hey hey
Now watch me you




Now watch me
Oh I bust the windows out your car.

Best singer in glee for a reason

@dbacaxi

Ok, idkw but It's so strange to see a lot people here coming from TikTok and not from Mercedes's iconic scene

@maelyzzz_

Lmao it's not strange not everyone watched glee

@dbacaxi

@@maelyzzz_ Actually, what I was trying to say It's strange to not see many gleeks here, especially because a lot of people consider this scene iconic

@WhyfallinLUVwhenUcanfallasleep

@@maelyzzz_ yeah but you would think that most of the people watching this would be the ones who actually watched the show. And it’s not even from the last seasons, it’s from the from the first three episodes of the first seasons.
