Pushing through the topsoil
And blinking in the light
Shading my eyes from the morning sun
I just wish that I could still see the world sometimes
The way I saw the world when I was young

Sleeping with a gun
Sleeping with a gun
Sleeping with a gun under my pillow
Sleeping with a gun
Sleeping with a gun
Sleeping with a gun under my pillow

Sometimes it gets lonely
Being valiantly alone
Sometimes I wish I was human, too
I get sad just thinking
Of all the little things
I never, ever had the heart to do

Sleeping with a gun
Sleeping with a gun
Sleeping with a gun under my pillow
Sleeping with a gun
Sleeping with a gun
Sleeping with a gun under my pillow

Sleeping with a gun
Sleeping with a gun
Sleeping with a gun under my pillow
Sleeping with a gun
Sleeping with a gun
Sleeping with a gun under my pillow

If I looked out of a
Different window would the
Snow still fall as beautiful?

    General CommentThis song goes right through me. I can't even listen to it anymore it's just so intense. Sometimes it gets lonely, being valiantly alone. Truth.

    General CommentThese are the correct lyrics:

    Pushing through the topsoil
    And blinking in the light
    Shading my eyes from the morning sun
    I just wish that I could still see the world sometimes
    The way I saw the world when I was young

    Sometimes it gets lonely
    Being valiantly alone
    Sometimes I wish I was human, too
    I get sad just thinking
    Of all the little things
    I never, ever had the heart to do

    If I looked out of a
    Different window would the
    Snow still fall as beautiful?
