Cleaning My Gun

  • You and I went gently, you and I went far and wide
    You and I went deeply, you and I went for a ride
    But somewhere in the ashes of this burning lovers' game
    Somehow you decided you would find another flame

    And as you lay sleeping with your eyes softly shut
    I'll be cleaning my gun
    I'll be cleaning my gun

    When heaven or hell takes this life
    I'll be done

    You never lied to me, never said you'd be around for long
    But somehow I believed that you would be my only one
    'Cause you know where I'm going, and you know where I'm coming from
    But now this train is slowly coming to its final destination

    And as you lay sleeping with your eyes softly shut
    I'll be cleaning my gun, yeah
    I'll be cleaning my gun

    When heaven or hell takes this life
    I'll be done

    Mother always told me love would save me from myself
    Daddy always said that love would take me straight to hell
    Sometimes they were right and sometimes they were oh so wrong

    'Cause I'm cleaning my gun, yeah
    I'm cleaning my gun
    When heaven or hell takes this life
    I'll be done

    When heaven or hell takes this life
    I'll be done Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
