about

"The mystery in those eyes that could demand anything. But it's no secret. It's only you that's suffering..."
This is a song about a dysfunctional relationship.

lyrics

Get A Gun:
So beautiful the mouth that says ugly things.
And you should hear it when she sings.
The softness of the hands that wear his rings.
Just like weapons, they're capable of violent things.

Cos it's no fun.
Just get a gun, she begs you.
She won't tell anyone.
It's no fun.
Just get it done.
He's no use to anyone.

The contours of the body and the pleasure it brings.
But you should see that face first thing.
The mystery in those eyes that could demand anything.
But it's no secret. It's only YOU that's suffering.

But it's no fun.
Just get a gun, she tells you.
He's no use to anyone.
Go on and get it done.
Now YOU'RE the only one.

And when she kisses your cheek you go weak at the knees.
Just like a teenager - except you're in you're thirties.
When she kisses your cheek you only see what she sees...
