It seems I've brought a Knife to a gunfight,
And you've got an army beside you,
I brought a knife to a gunfight again,
And I don't stand a chance,
No I don't stand a chance.

Because I already lost before,
You walked through my door.

And all it took,
Was a few dirty looks,
From a few dirty crooks,
To break through, My defences.

Oh, and It caught me off guard,
Your cold bloody heart,
It ran through my head,
And left me for dead.

And I found a place,
Behind enemy lines,
Where it's safe,
Under cover of night.

But, there's no, where to hide,
When the cavalry arrives,
So I'm left with a knife,
In a gunfight.

Because I already lost before,
You walked through my door.

And all it took,
Was a few dirty looks,
From a few dirty crooks,
To break through, My defences.

Oh, and It caught me off guard,
Your cold bloody heart,
It ran through my head,
And left me for dead.

Because I'm giving up, Oh,
I'm saying nothing,
Believe, Me, I don't give up easily,
No, I, wouldn't be walking away,
If I thought I could save us now.

And all it took,
Was a few dirty looks,
From a few dirty crooks,
To break through, My defences.

Oh, and It caught me off guard,
Your cold bloody heart,
It ran through my head,
And left me for dead.

And left me for dead.
Left me for dead.
Left me for dead.
Left me for dead.

    Being unprepared, perhaps a love that is particularly destructive. Bringing the knife to the gunfight in the sense that there's no possible way to come out of it uninjured. Whether it be emotionally if not taken in a literal sense.
