"Gunshot Glitter" as written by and Jeff Buckley....
Don't you want to let go of your heart
Or you resist the beds of bliss
Fortune makes fools of us all
My dear materialista, silence was insane,
The parting was mutual.
Don't you want the rocket to rock out?
There's room for us both to fly.
Tell the man I'm never coming back again.
Tell the man I'm never coming back again.
Why should you notice at all?
Gone again beside you will fall
Down to the sea out of the skies
Of gold cards and casual tears
I have only come to see you shine
Feminine smiles the right side is wise, more than I.
I want to be your lover,
Lipstick my name across your mirror.
Blood red with flaked gunshot glitter
And be one with all you disowned in your young life.
You paranoia politician diva.
You paranoia politician diva.

Will you let go of your heart,
Left behind a hypnotizing swirl
The semi's left behind.

Don't you want to rocket to rock?
There's room for both of us to fly
Same show everyday, don't have to blow up in the sky.
So I just came from Hicks town,
Left my coins behind
Maybe some poor cloths pony will himself a life
Why should you care if I crash your affair?
Why should you notice me? I really want to see you shine.

I want to be your lover,
Lipstick my name across your mirror.
Now, be one with all you disown,
True love has come to us all.
Blinded by the flame, right side smiles,
Organized male, love, my silence was insane.
The parting was mutual the moment I became
A paranoia politician
Diva
A paranoia politician diva
A paranoia politician diva
A paranoia politician diva
Diva, diva, diva

    General CommentIt's probably in my top five favourite Buckley Songs.

    It has a color and Emotion Landscape to it, that I really love, and only get with songs that connect with me personally, and that's how I feel about This Stunning Song.

    It shocks me what little imagination people seem to have.

    This Song, was going to Rule The World.

    Like All His Others

    General CommentThis song rocks. He reaches his highest note recorded on this track, on "the semi's left behind" that last note on "behind" always creeps me out a tad. This song is just beautiful in a ..weird creepy rockstar industry puppet way.

    General CommentConsidering Jeff used his fingers to tap the beat on his microphone, this song is just pure pleasure. Like Murder Meteor Suicide Slave, don't be put off by the sound quality - the lyrics are great.

    General CommentI think maybe this song could be about the speaker trying to relase somebody from parts of their life that they are bound to in order to allow them to start a relationship with someone again and reassuring them that this time it will be different as they will be taken care of. The person who is being addressed in the past has perhaps been mistreated by former partner(s). Yet the speaker can't seem to be able to help this person at all and if he does it's always just a series of tempory fixes until it crumbles again and leads the speaker to believe it's all just for attention and starts to get angry and agressive about this towards the end of the song

    "same show everyday, don't have to bow up the sky.
    why should you care if i crash your affair?
    why should you notice me? "

    yet the yearning for the heart of this person still remains with the speaker but he can't waste anymore time so decides to leave this person alone to their own devices.

    i really wanna see you shine i wanna be your lover

    lipstick my name across your mirror
    now, be one with all you disown.

    Peace Out ( all that was probably me talking crap hehehehe)
