"A Pistol To My Temple" as written by and Stephen Kirby Pouyan Afkary....
If I flew into a mountain, burn myself to nothing
There would be something, would it be enough?
A pistol to my temple, pull the trigger like it's nothing
There would be something but it's never enough

This is all an illusion
What do you take me for?

It makes no difference what I do for you
I would give you my life but it just won't ever be enough

I hurt someone that loved you except that I felt nothing
That would be something, would it be enough?
I had everything you wanted, it shows to give you nothing
That would be something, this is all too much

This is all an illusion
What do you take me for?

It makes no difference what I do for you
I would give you my life but it just won't ever be enough
It makes no difference what I do for you
I would give you my life but it just won't ever be enough

I'm burning alive
With a pistol to my temple

If we don't believe this reason for living
Then we'll never know, do I wanna know?
If we don't believe this reason for living
Then we'll never know, do I wanna know?
If we just give up, give into the pressure
We're losing it all, we're losing control

It makes no difference what I do for you
I would give you my life but it just won't ever be enough
It makes no difference what I do for you
I would give you my life but it just won't ever be enough
(Would I give it all for you?)

    General CommentThis song truly hits the root of my heart.
    This song expresses so much..This song reminds me of me and how i've given up for her. Truly beautiful in it's own way.

    p.s. The last line is "I'd give it all up for you"

    General CommentThis song really means a lot to me on a personal level
    as well, KoKoNotakii. If I could say what's on my mind to
    my best friend (my EX), then it would be in the form in
    this song. The lyrics are just SPOT ON.

    General CommentSome key parts in these lyrics are off, man. The real lyrics are:

    If I flew into a mountain, burn myself to nothing -
    That would be something, would it be enough?
    A pistol to my temple, pull the trigger like it's nothing -
    That would be something, but it's never enough.

    This is all an illusion.
    What do you take me for?
    It makes no difference what I do for you,
    I would give you my life but it just won't ever be enough.

    I hurt someone that loved you, and said that I felt nothing -
    That would be something, would it be enough?
    I had everything you wanted, and choose to give you nothing.
    That would be something - this is all too much!

    This is all an illusion.
    What do you take me for?
    It makes no difference what I do for you,
    I would give you my life but it just won't ever be enough.
    It makes no difference what I do for you,
    I would give you my life but it just won't ever be enough.
