Noel Gallagher – If I Had A Gun lyrics
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

    I think its about a guy who meets a girl who has had a past of her own with a previous relationship and he falls in love with her and wants to show her what a real relationship is like. " give you back the dream, and show you now what might have been, if all the tears you cry would fade away. " but he doesn't want to s***w it up so hes afraid to go to fast but he loves her so much he can't control it shes all he thinks about " scuse me if I spoke too soon, my eyes have always followed you around the
    room. 'cus you're the only god that I will ever need, I'm holding on and
    waiting for the moment to find me. " and hes waiting for the perfect moment to tell her how much he loves her? Just my interp lol amazing song!

    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.

    Regretting not fulfilling a dream of loving a woman who in some way represents godliness to himself and whom he has spent time watching and realizing that through her he could have been deepened, as a person but has failed her. Wanting to make it happen and making what he knows he should have done with her in the beginning right now and fulfilling her dreams of being loved by him. Wanting to suspend the moment so that everything in her dream bears fruit and is finally fulfilled.
    And can stay that way unchanging. There is a sense of needing to be taming the extremes of destructive forces within to be with the one he loves. The violence of shooting a hole in the sun and burning down a city reflects that. Knowing this extreme desire to make it right can't be fulfilled and that there will be a painful goodbye between them. He is sensitive enough to know the separation will be painful for her not to have her dreams of love with him fulfillled and he wants to be with her in her tears and pain knowing that somehow it is happening to her because of a weakness in his character that he didn't seize the day with her. Lost opportunity regrets and pain from that go to make this song a eulogy.

    Boy meets girl, boy and girl fall in love, boy is happy, boy and girl have problem and split, boy misses girl would shoot a hole in the sun for girl, would stop the world and make her his, give her back a dream (have the happiness they had together) show you now what mightv been (how great things mightv been) every tear you cry would fade away (all the sadness gone and only happiness, i'll be by your side when they come to say goodbye (when the people around her are disappearing he will be there for her and they will live to fight another day, he worships her as someone would worship a god (the only god that he would ever need, holding on and waiting for the moment to find me meaning he's lost without her. Fly you to the moon (make her happy) eyes have always followed you round the room (only has eyes for her)
    oh yeah and unbroken by the sea I think there separated by an ocean.
    Think that covers it, iv been learning guitar for a year on n off now and started singing along just the other day. Finally played and sung the whole song through 5 minutes ago.
    Great song by an amazing artist/song writer.

    When he says "if I had a gun id shoot a hole into the sun and love would burn this city down for you" I think he's trying to say he would get rid of all false hope and love would take over. Could be nothing to do with that.

    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.
