Hunters, lonely workers wander
clutching their briefcase or bag
umbrella in hand

I'm just a child now I know I will
be doing things that I shouldn't
like picking up when I could put down
and saying no when I wouldn't

never was my ray gun on you
if it was you have somehow slipped through
my fingers tremble too much
to hold or control
never was, never was my ray gun on you

working only shifting heartbeats
making the day flow by
laborious lines

you say you've held it inside
you've seen some things that are real
but only now do I realise
cos only now do I feel

never was my ray gun on you
if it was you have somehow slipped through
my fingers tremble too much
to hold or control
never was, never was my ray gun on you
never was, never was my ray gun on you

    General CommentMy favourite song off his album.

    As to the meaning, the guy finds out this other person has or had feelings for them and they lament that they never really looked at the person in that way when it matter, that his "ray gun" was never on that person. That even if they considered it at the time his nerves or fear of rejection meant he wouldn't go after this person. Pretty much a song about missed opportunities in love.
