"With A Bullet" as written by and Sam Lewis Roberts....
Our love is dark thoughts as it is bright lights
It's the sound of a teardrop falling down from a great height
So don't let go, let waters flow

And babe you have nothing to fear for
This is as real as the rain
My love for you is as deep as a coalmine

You move like moonshine straight to my head
This is a storyline we write from the same bed
You had for sale a holy grail

And babe you have nothing to fear for
This is as real as the rain
My love for you is as deep as a coalmine

And our love is dark thoughts as it is bright lights
And it's the sound of a teardrop falling down from a great height

And babe you have nothing to fear for
This is as real as the rain
My love for you is as deep as a coalmine
No, babe you have nothing to fear for
This is as real as the rain
My love for you is as deep as a coalmine

If you were marked with a bullet
I'd jump in front of it
I'd rather die for love than die for the want of it
Forever alive, forever forward
I have no use at all for any more words

I'll take on all of your sorrows for mine my dear, till the days run clear,
Until they start to shine, coming through your window, head on your pillow,
The sight is honey for my mind girl and I've been digging, ever deeper,
This love gets easier the more it's sung to, the more it rings true,
The more I find the breath to help sing with these miner's lungs

    General CommentHow is it lame? The song seems to be written about a coal miners love for his girl (sing with these miner's lungs) and coal mines a pretty deep. I think it's a great metaphor.

    General Commentmy friend is actually cousin's with eric fares (he does guitar, keyboard and backup vocals)
    anyway... from what he tells me, sam roberts band has had a past with drugs... especially weed... and miner's lungs is very much the kind of lungs you get when you smoke weed... their music references the stuff a couple times... and umm... you can kind of tell they do drugs, by the sound... or at least have in the past
    so why talk about coalmines? for coherence? 'cause it sounds good and makes sense...

    General Commenti can listen to chemical city all the way through, i think it's a great album and for sure with a bullet is one of the stand out songs, the lyrics may not be the greatest but the music is undeniably good.
    the best line, "It's the sound of a teardrop falling down from a great height."

    General CommentI just wanna say that this song was one of those songs for me that made no sense untill i could relate to it....I think its about how a girl was doubting that their love was true, but he was saying not to worry...that he loved her more than anything, that their love was really really deep....and also how she takes the pain away..."You move like moonshine, straight to my head..." Love it...

    General CommentThis song really grew on me after time.

    I think the coalmine line is lame, but the rest of it rocks.
