Emiliana Torrini – Gun lyrics

Every day I see you looking in
I'll be the smoothest thing to touch your skin
You're longing to be loved but you're alone
And your longing makes you shiver to the bone

And no, your mamma told you nothing of importance
No, your daddy taught you nothing you could learn
You had your sister's weighing on your pockets
And your priest, he tries so hard to get you turned

Maybe you've been living lonely
While your woman has a fellow on the side
Your kids keep telling jokes that ain't that funny
And you've failed in everything that comes to mind

Now you see I'm only here to let you know
That I love you and I'll never let you go
So take me in the hand and walk on by
For the life this has to offer twists inside

Now your woman has a fellow in your bed
You have to go, you have to move right in
And the ring on your finger would leave another scar
But the joke's on her, she hasn't seen it all

So you shuffled up close and you shot him in the face
And your woman looked on and your children, they embraced
And the candle's still burning and the fire's roaring fire
You moved right in, yeah, you moved right in

Stuck, you're shaking, sweating, whining and regretting
You're making a scene but it's gonna get you caught
Meet me in the barrel and tell me that you love me
Yes, this is a kiss that I swear will blow your mind
