so I can get on my way.
Click off the safety, I’ll pick up my things
We both know it’s not here I’m supposed to stay
Aim straight my dear,
Those pearly gates are calling
or maybe they’re the ones in flames.
Either way, I’m going
and it’ll never be the same.
Let loose that bullet, darlin’
let me slip away.
Stand back my dear, don't get
marred by crimson spray.
It’s gruesome, I know, but it’s how I’ll fly away.
Don’t fall to your knees in pain.
Turn on your heel, stay tall, stand strong.
You’re not the one who has been slain.
Oh darlin’ how could you not see?
Love frays, love always ends.
Whether it is kind, crooked,
or death tearing us apart.
You freed me with bullets you fired from your tongue,
the ones I fell for when we’d first begun.
