Songfacts®:

  • Such is her commitment to her beau, Sia is willing to take one million bullets for their love. However, she is wondering how far he would go for her. Sia told Australian station Nova 96.9's DJs Fitzy and Wippa she wrote the song for her film maker husband Erik Anders, "right before we got together."
  • "Bullets" was released as a promotional single from This Is Acting. It is the only song on the album that wasn't originally written for another artist.

    Sia told Rolling Stone all of the tracks "were written with the intention of being for somebody else." However this one she didn't send to anybody. "That one I liked," she explained, "and I already had so much of the album completed - but I loved it and didn't want to give it to anyone else."
