(Give my gun away when it's loaded
If you don't shoot it, how am I supposed to hold it
Give my gun away when it's loaded
If you don't shoot it, how am I supposed to hold it)

Now I can tell you're growing bored of me
Like you finally figured out that I don't deserve you
But you always meant more to me
And while your body borders me, it's clear to me
We only have so much love to give so we rationed it accordingly

Now we can handle this very adult and orderly
As long as you don't speak to me in that tone and condescendingly order me
In order for me to be under control you can't corner me
Cause I'll fly off the handle and scream
"You're just a fucking whore to me!"

More importantly, in the very core of me
I know that you were right, cause loving you has become a chore to me
And I know that you won't hear this song
Because it's been a solid couple years since you outwardly supported me

Now with suspicion or rather sordidly
I jot these lyrics in my pad to release the deepest thoughts stored in me
(Yeah)
According to me, fortunately we only wasted five years
But I thank you for the love that you afforded me.

(Give my gun away when it's loaded
If you don't shoot it, how am I supposed to hold it
Give my gun away when it's loaded
If you don't shoot it, how am I supposed to hold it)

Half sincere apologies seem to follow me everywhere
And though I swear solemnly that I care
I can't promise that you will tomorrow
Something blue, something borrowed,
Something carved out in the middle till it's cold and it's hollow

I never thought that we'd turn into this
A broken heart with a valve shut off and the lips served as tourniquet
Sure it gets hard but I guess we're not concerned with it
Even the greatest loves'll die if we're not present or there to service it

But I guess that's an excuse
I know that I was gone a long time on the road
And I guess you just got used to it
Nobody can do for me what you did
You taught me how to find truth even when it hides deep inside where lies live

And that's why I'd give anything for you
More than just content, you deserve the dreams you're after too
And I know we can't be wrong, but I can only stand up for our love on eggshells for so long and...

(Give my gun away when it's loaded
If you don't shoot it, how am I supposed to hold it
Give my gun away when it's loaded
If you don't shoot it, how am I supposed to hold it)

Now it would be the truth if I said that I felt stuck
But again it would be the truth if I said I'd never give you up
Never felt such confusion
Yeah, we put on a happy face and a smile
But it's only in hopes of selling the illusion
Grips that used to be tightened, loosened
We sit in stew in this apartment
Annoyed by what we used to find amusing
See, we've become the very thing that we vowed not to be
And it's that failure that keeps us trapped in our hypocrisy
This is not you and me, we've become something else
Two enemies forced to give pieces of one's self

This was supposed to be infinity, but I guess that's not true,
This is goodbye, I will always love you.

(Give my gun away when it's loaded
If you don't shoot it, how am I supposed to hold it
Give my gun away when it's loaded
If you don't shoot it, how am I supposed to hold it)
