Richard Buckner – Faithful Shooter lyrics

Ask her when you're upstairs later on
With her eyes bowing down and her last light gone
You looked up to her window from the backyard dusk
Hired as a shot, lingered as a crush

Stake me when I'm running and I'll stay down
See, I've only had a photograph to drag around
Would you take another trip with a candle like her?
Strike another promise and watch it burn

Someone drove off slow
Another left the day before
Time was saved
But not a thing was changed

Faithful shooter

It's low and it's bright and it won't be known
Till you wake up to the sound of the light below
Did you lose her mercy on some torn down friend?
Half of nothing wasted and split again

If one of us had shown up
Faded, fond and tried
Waiting for some rain
Not a thing would change

Faithful shooter
