Bullet

Album: The Circle (2009)
  • Dateline early Sunday morning
    Shots ring out without a warning
    No one seems to even blink in this town
    Two dead and a baby missing
    Sirens screaming in the distance
    A mother pleading bring my baby home now

    For the pink slip of an SUV
    A night cut down in tragedy
    His defense another generation breakdown

    Yeah, yeah

    What is the distance between a bullet and a gun
    God are you listening
    Or have you just given up

    Corporate countries go to war
    Behind the lies they're fighting for
    And black gold from an old king's soul won this round
    How can someone take a life
    In the name of God and say it's right
    How does money lead to greed
    When there's still hungry mouths to feed

    Yeah, yeah

    What is the distance between a bullet and a gun
    God are you listening
    Or have you just given up

    We need forgiveness
    We all need a lot of love

    We need some hope
    We need it now
    A little faith man help me out
    I'll learn to pray
    But it's too late now

    Yeah, yeah

    What is the distance between a bullet and a gun
    God are you listening
    Or have you just given up

    What is the distance between a bullet and a gun
    We need forgiveness
    We all need a lot of love
    A lot of love Writer/s: RICHIE SAMBORA, JON BON JOVI

  • Sarah Remmel from Twinsburg, OhioOne of the best songs, on the Circle album. I loved this-song instantly, & I got really addicted, to it, the very first-time, I heard it, on the CD. Bon Jovi, is & will, ALWAYS be, the greatest, New Jersey band Ever.
