Living with a lonely gun
Like we're both too afraid to run
Unlike us it speaks the truth
Both are waiting to be used
Like a match and a fuse
When you come together
She's your life to lose

I wish I could I could turn it off
Bullets ricochet like thought
Anything to break the calm
Take my mind off this lonely gun

Every time I try to get a hold
You, you turn to stone
A bullet and a chamber, cold
Can you hear a heartbeat alone?

I wish I could I could turn it off
Bullets ricochet like thought
Anything to break the calm
Take my mind off this lonely gun

This lonely gun
Take my mind off this gun
This lonely gun

I don't know
Where the last pieces go
To fix our love
Fix our love
We try
We try
We try
Again to fill it up
Fill it up
Fill it up
Oh...

I wish I could I could turn it off
Bullets ricochet like thought
Anything to break the calm
Take my mind off this lonely gun

I wish I could I could turn it off
Bullets ricochet like thought
Anything to break the calm
Take my mind off this lonely gun

This lonely gun
Take my mind off this gun
This lonely gun
