"Pistol" as written by and Dustin Michael Kensrue....
Love how you curse when I wake you up
Sweetly demand that I fill your cup
With the smile of your cool gunpowder glare
Honey, you lay me bare

You're the girl of my dreams
And a pistol it seems, but you shoot me straight and true
Time to lay down my bets
Oh, I put all my money on you

When I'm in the dark, girl, you bring me light
It seems like you're almost always right
So keep boxing my ears when I sew them shut
Baby, you sure are tough

You're the girl of my dreams
And a pistol it seems, but you shoot me straight and true
Time to lay down my fears
Honey, I feel so safe around you

If the tiller man taught me anything
It's that a hard headed woman is what I need
To help me to always do my best
Baby, my life is blessed

You're the girl of my dreams
Darling, please wear this ring
You're an angel through and through
Time to lay down my life
Honey, I'd do it gladly for you
Time to lay down my life
Honey, I'd do it gladly for you

    General Commenti absolutely fell in love with this song the first time i heard it. its just exactly about the relationship with my boyfriend its almost scary.. the song just makes me think about his little quirks that drive me crazy, but i secretly love. cuz when you love somebody you love EVERYTHiNG about them, and you would do ANYTHiNG for them..and i would for my bf..i would give my life for him in a heartbeat, i love him that much. ...but the song is absolutely amazing, props to dustin...he is quite the genius

    General CommentDeff like ryan adams. When I first heard his music I thought of Ryan Adams. The harmonica makes me think of Come Pick Me Up by Ryan Adams. I love how Dustin's voice is so raw..

    General CommentGreat song, great album.

    "If the tiller man taught me anything,
    It's that a hard-headed woman is what I need"

    Interesting. I'm sure I'm not the first one to notice this but there is a great album by Cat Stevens, called 'Tea for the Tillerman', which is mostly about a spiritual man trying to find meaning/happiness in life, and it contains the song "hard headed woman".

    Dustin can write some amazing lyrics, and I can't wait for the new Thrice album to drop.

    General Comment"I love how you curse when I wake you up
    And sweetly demand that I fill your cup.
    With the smile of your cool gun powder glare
    Honey, you lay me bare."

    I believe that's what he says.
