(I'm an angel with a shotgun, shotgun, shotgun,
An angel with a shotgun, shotgun, shotgun...)

Get out your guns, battles begun,
Are you a saint, or a sinner?
If loves a fight, than I shall die,
With my heart on a trigger.

They say before you start a war,
You better know what you're fighting for.
Well baby, you are all that I adore,
If love is what you need, a soldier I will be.

I'm an angel with a shotgun,
Fighting til' the wars won,
I don't care if heaven won't take me back.
I'll throw away my faith, babe, just to keep you safe.
Don't you know you're everything I have?
... and I, wanna live, not just survive, tonight.

Sometimes to win, you've got to sin,
Don't mean I'm not a believer.
... and major Tom, will sing along.
Yeah, they still say I'm a dreamer.

They say before you start a war,
You better know what you're fighting for.
Well baby, you are all that I adore,
If love is what you need, a soldier I will be.

I'm an angel with a shotgun,
Fighting til' the wars won,
I don't care if heaven won't take me back.
I'll throw away my faith, babe, just to keep you safe.
Don't you know you're everything I have?
... and I, wanna live, not just survive, tonight.

Ooohhh, ooohhh whoa whoa oooh whoa

I'm an angel with a shotgun...
Fighting til' the wars won...
I don't care if heaven won't take me back...

I'm an angel with a shotgun,
Fighting til' the wars won,
I don't care if heaven won't take me back.
I'll throw away my faith, babe, just to keep you safe.
Don't you know you're everything I have?
(I'm an angel with a shotgun)
... and I, want to live, not just survive, tonight.
(Live, not just survive)

... and I'm gonna hide, hide, hide my wings tonight.

They say before you start a war,
You better know what you're fighting for.
Well baby, you are all that I adore,
If love is what you need, a soldier I will be.

    To me this song means, if you love someone you will fight for them. It's incredibly inspiring and it's about protecting who you love and being able to hold onto their heart

    Even the kindest people will become murderous just to protect the ones they love and anything that is quite important. This song has a person who wants to protect the one he loves, even if it means death to clear this up lol

    Okay.. So, to me, this song is about not being noticed by them, but still loving that person. You'll do anything for them. You would die for them! You're trying to love them but they don't love you back... But you don't care! You'll still love them forever and you'll fight until you geet them.. Thats just what I think! :3

    The person is fighting a battle for love. Basically, its better to live, have a life, then go around doing the same thing everyday.
