Bust Your Windows
Jazmine Sullivan Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I bust the windows out ya car
And no, 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 ya car
After I saw you laying next to 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 feel when you saw it
I didn't know that I had that much strength
But I'm glad you see what happens when

See, you can't just play with people's 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, 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 that's all I did
After five whole years of this bullshit
Gave you all of me and you played with it, ooh-ah

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 people's 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

I bust the windows out ya car
But it don't compare to my broken heart
You could never feel how I felt that day
Until it happens, baby, you don't know pain

Oh, 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 deserved it (you deserved it)
I ain't sorry (I ain't sorry)
No, no, oh (I ain't sorry)

You broke my heart
So I broke ya car (you caused me pain)
You caused me pain
So I did the same

Even though all that you did to me was much worse
I had to do something to make you hurt, yeah
Oh, but why am I still cryin'?
Why am I the one who's still cryin'?

Oh, oh, you really hurt me, baby
You really, you really hurt me, baby
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Now watch me you




Now watch me you
I bust the windows out ya car

I'm 47, but nearly 18 years with a narc made me realize that sometimes the consequences are worth it. He already had me stopped by the police three times in two weeks, to the point where last time I tore into the cop before he even cleared the car, telling him this was ridiculous. He approached me, with his high-lumen flashlight in my face, saying he had to slam on his brakes to avoid hitting me.


I was on a bike and hugging the curb as I made a right turn. He had to pull into my neighborhood at a full 90 degree turn, and then navigate the deep dip in the street that slows cars for the elementary school that is there. Yet, he claimed to almost hit me? Liar.


I told him to get his flashlight out of my face because I have one too, and the box specifically warns that it can cause permanent damage to the eyes. He stopped with the light, but tried to continue intimidating me, right as my daughter came around the corner on her bike with my Belgian Malinois. He never even addressed the fact that she had no bike light, as he had done to me. And he said nothing about my Mal being off leash. It was me he wanted.
The funny thing is, even though I told him I lived in this neighborhood for 18 years, he never asked my address. And he never asked my name either. Who is pulled over by a cop and not asked their name? Could it be that the wife of a kung fu master who trained local PD and FBI is the target of some weird intimidation scheme? Seriously, a 47 year old woman, pulled over on a bike, or stopped at the park with her dog, or interrogated by police in her own bedroom the night after her hero husband had sexually assaulted her in their marriage bed, all seems a little to coincidental to be chance. Hell, I was not stopped by police that much when I was a little 20 year old rebel riding my bike with a screwdriver in my back pocket in the middle of the night. And the cop who had been at the park, whom I told where I lived and why I took my Mal to the park at all hours because she needs to be off-leash, well, he just happened to be driving past my home when I arrived home from walking my pup.
But the absolute marvelous thing was the little bitch who wouldn't leave my bedroom. Two cops come in, and yes, I had been having a fit because my husband held me down and told me he wouldn't "have a wife I (he) can't fuck. Oh, forgive me for losing my shit, especially when I know he already had his bag packed, and intentionally needled me about what he did to make me explode, and then he called the police, but didn't escape in time to avoid them.
I was in my bedroom, in underwear and a t-shirt. The male cop, clearly uncomfortable, listened to my reasons and got out of there asap. The little blond woman who was about 5 inches shorter than me, wouldn't leave. I relayed the info to her, told her why I might seem a little aggressive after being held down and groped, but she stayed. I asked her to leave and she wouldn't. I was so mad she is lucky I didn't grab her by the throat. No matter what I said she refused to leave my bedroom, so I got up.
I stood as close as possible to her, towering over her little blond ass, and said, "ARE YOU FUCKING STUPID? YOU ARE A WOMAN! HOW DARE YOU VIOLATE MY REQUEST AFTER WHAT I JUST TOLD YOU.


I know I am lucky to not have been arrested. But I make all those kinds of decisions carefully, now that I know what I am up against. She left. I didn't get arrested, but I still feel like she violated me, knowing that I was in a trauma state. In contrast, one night when I slept in my truck at the beach to avoid being raped for the fourth time, the cops drive by as I was barfing out the door. I'm sure I looked a mess and he could have easily taken me in to jail. But when I told him why I was like that, all he did was ask me if there was anything he could do. So sweet. Just goes to show you that maybe my local PD are slightly biased against me...


I would not have regretted going to jail for any of those things. I would have missed my cigarettes though. LOL. There were no cops around when I bashed the mirror off of my whore husband's new car, both times, so they never saw me do anything. That is the secret. Don't be on video or let the cops trick you. I'd rather go to jail than be a little bitch. Just because it is illegal doesn't mean it is wrong. He deserved much worse.
