"Shoot From The Hip" as written by Michael Elvis Baskette and Torry Jasper....
Picture perfect turned to worthless
Bittersweet, the taste is like ash in my mouth
Love, we had it, you're a bad habit
I'm ready to give you up, I give up

Silly me for thinking honesty is something given free
I make the rules and this is how it ends

Heartbreak, baby, is half the fun
You bring the bullets, I'll bring the guns
Take ten steps now turn and draw
I shoot from the hip then watch you fall

Heartbreak, baby, is half the fun
You bring the bullets, I'll bring the guns
Take ten steps now turn and draw
I shoot from the hip then watch you fall

Scenes of passion never lasted
Your mistakes are too much to put behind
I am tired with no desire
To put together things that just fall apart

Silly me for thinking honesty is something given free
I make the rules, this is how it ends

Heartbreak, baby, is half the fun
You bring the bullets, I'll bring the guns
Take ten steps now turn and draw
I shoot from the hip then watch you fall

Heartbreak, baby, is half the fun
You bring the bullets, I'll bring the guns
Take ten steps now turn and draw
I shoot from the hip then watch you fall, then watch you fall

Silly me for thinking honesty is something given free
I make the rules, this is how it ends

Heartbreak, baby, is half the fun
You bring the bullets, I'll bring the guns
Take ten steps now turn and draw
I shoot from the hip then watch you fall

Heartbreak, baby, is half the fun
You bring the bullets, I'll bring the guns
Take ten steps now turn and draw
I shoot from the hip then watch you fall

    General Commentwhen i heard the intro with the Wooaah bit, i thought it was some rave song lawl. But no, and i love it.
    'You bring the bullets, I'll bring the guns' I think its about working together to end a relationship properly? Like they both have their reasons to end it but he's the one who wins the argument, sort of, 'I shoot from the hip then watch you fall'
    Well thats how I see it lawl
    xo.

    General CommentA Change of Pace went downhill after the first CD. It's a shame. These lyrics seem like they were written in crayon by a 5 year old. Decent musical talent being wasted by terrible writing.

    General Commentomg love the song, i think it has to do about how when you know a relationship has come to an end and that maybe one found out secrets about the other and wants them to feel pain as revenge

    General Commenti freaking love this song. i believe its talking about ending a relationship as well.
    they talk about how the relationship was perfect and full of love "Picture perfect
    Turned to worthless"
    but then she started lying to him "Silly me for thinking honesty is something
    Given free,"
    but then he took control and decided to end it "I make the rules
    And this is how it is"
    maybe even by "You bring the bullets, I'll bring the guns" he means she brought the issue "bullets" and hes going to end it "guns" because he cant take her lying and he knows its over and never going to get better because theres no more trust "Your mistakes are too much to put behind
    I am tired
    With no desire
    To put together things that just fall apart"

    thats what it sounds like to me :)
