If I had a gun I'd shoot a hole into the sun
And love would burn this city down for you
If I had the time I'd stop the world and make you mine
And every day would stay the same with you

Aaahh
Aaahh

Give you back a dream
And show you now what might have been
If all the tears you cry would fade away
I'll be by your side
When they come to say goodbye
And we will live to fight another day

Excuse me if I spoke too soon
My eyes have always followed you around the room
'Cause you're the only God that I will ever need
I'm holding on, I'm waiting for the moment to find me

Aaahh
Aaahh
Aaahh
Aaahh

Hope I didn't speak too soon
My eyes have always followed you around the room
'Cause you're the only God that I will ever need
I'm holding on, I'm waiting for the moment
For my heart to be unbroken by the seam

Aaahh Aaahh
Aaahh Aaahh
Aaahh Aaahh
Aaahh Aaahh

Let me fly you to the moon
My eyes have always followed you around the room
'Cause you're the only God that I will ever need
I'm holding on, I'm waiting for the moment to find me

Aaahh
Aaahh

If I had a gun I'd shoot a hole into the sun
And love will burn this city down for you

    Clearly about a girl he's had a thing for who's going through heartbreak and he's admitting his feelings for her to her and trying to comfort her and what might have been if she'd chosen him

    This speaks to me on a very personal level
    It reminds me of how i fell in love with someone i couldnt have
    But i still only had eyes for her
    If i had a gun...

    This is my favourite song at the moment. It really captures how i feeling right now in a very real way. The line "my eyes have always followed you around the room" is quite simply one of the best song lines i have ever heard. It is so simple yet conveys such an incredible sense of longing and love. This is one of those songs that i wish i could write.

    Although from the title some people might be lead to believe this song would be about the people noel would execute with a gun, when you actually listen to it you realise it's the total opposite and it's what he'd use a gun for that impact the love of his life in a positive/special way. Basically this song is noel trying to say everything he could do for a girl by mentioning the literally impossible.
