"Don't Give That Girl a Gun" as written by Amy Elizabeth Ray and Emily Ann Saliers....
A jury of my peers
I'm ready to be ritious
Screaming in her ears
I'm not dignified anymore
You can't say I didn't call
I say I love you
She don't hear me anymore

Don't give that girl a gun
I said now don't give that girl a gun
She's already won
She's already won

I made a bad connection
She says "I would have stayed"
I jumped ship abandoned my post
I didn't think I lost my way
But how the mighty falls
I saw her crack a smile
I don't got a chance of redemption
She don't believe in the American mile

So take the first shot baby
It will be real clean
I'm your girl-it's all me
And take the second shot baby
It'll be real cold
I'm your girl

Don't give that girl a gun
I said now don't give that girl a gun
She's already won
She's already won

Yeah

Yeah

I sing hold me closer
Oh something's happening
I can't belong again
And I said I doubt we ever will
Ever will again

I said don't give that girl a gun
I said now don't give that girl a gun
She's already won, already won.

    General Commentthis is a classic break-up song. It is about knowing you screwed up and lost something really good. You know you deserve to get dumped and you can't ever get your love back. You hate yourself and you wish your ex and her friends would just shoot you by getting all the hate and resentment over at once. The lesbian community is very small and everyone knows everyone's business. If you cheat or hurt yor partner it will get around and everone will telll you what an ass you are. This song is about that.
