Lori McKenna – American Revolver lyrics

She's crying again
You lay quiet on her chest
She knows you're a dangerous comfort
But you haven't broken her heart yet

She wants to feel safe again
She thinks that you understand
Maybe it's crazy maybe it's brave
Either way it's a losing game

She's hoping she'll know what to do
With a 6 shot 22

When the only one who's innocent is cold blue steel
For the first time someone's listening to how she feels
Lord knows you can't save her
You can't stop or change her plans
Just an American revolver

You're proof she means what she says
It's a fairer fight with you around
To rescue her if things get so bad
There's no other possible way out

She keeps going back and forth
Between herself and the door

When the only one who's innocent is cold blue steel
For the first time someone's listening to how she feels
Lord knows you can't save her
You can't stop or change her plans
Just an American revolver

Too late now for I'm sorry - American revolver
He's coming up the front steps - American revolver
He's been drinking again
She keeps going back and forth
Between herself and the door

When the only one who's innocent is cold blue steel
But this time someone's gonna listen to how she feels
Lord knows you can't save her
You can't stop or change her plans
Just an American revolver
