"Bullets" as written by and Daniel/palomar Layus....
Come fly down like a singing bird
Sings your name, but I am still the same
Black and white, no, you're not to blame
Holly swing, put me down to shame

Jack and coke, please take off your coat
Come and dance, shuffle with a glance
Come and smile, please stay here awhile
When you're gone, leaving for the door

Lights in the car in the park
Falling on my face, I know who we are
Now I'm looking down for the rest of the night
Bullet in my head ended late last night

It's in my head
My head

Come face down, lying on the ground
In record time, your words, they always rhyme
There's a strange, strange boy with his favorite toy
In your room..

She's shaking in the car with a gun in her hands
Falling over love and the sweet romance
And I ain't never thought it could come down to this
A bullet in my head with the sweetest kiss

It's in my head
It's in my headâ?¦
My head

She's shaking in the car with the gun in her hands
Falling over love and this sweet romance
And I ain't never thought it could come down to this
A bullet in my head with the sweetest kiss

It's in my head
It's in my head
It's in my head
It's in my head
It's in my head

    General CommentI agree this is a hard song to break down...but it's still one of my favs from the cd.

    The way I see it is, he was infatuated (maybe to the point he might have thought he was in love) with this girl for probably only a brief time (probably met at a party hince the second verse). They had a one night stand (in his car apparently). The gun was a metaphor for the control she had over him, and the bullet in the head was basically her leaving and not contacting him again and him left by himself, or something like that.

    General CommentThe version of this song i heard has different lyrics, but this song, for me, is hard to pick apart. I feel like it's a troubled relationship, where the death of their relationship is symbolized by the gun, and the bullet is the break up?
