  • She had a face straight outta magazine
    God only knows but you'll never leave her
    Her balaclava is starting to chafe
    When she gets his gun he's begging, babe stay, stay, stay, stay, stay

    I'll give him one more time
    We'll give you one more fight
    Said one more lie
    Will I know you

    Now if you never shoot, you'll never know
    And if you never eat, you'll never grow
    You've got a pretty kinda dirty face
    When she's leaving your home she's begging you, stay, stay, stay, stay, stay

    I'll give you one more time
    We'll give you one more fight
    Just said one more line
    There'll be a riot, 'cause I know you

    Well now that you've got your gun
    It’s much harder now the police have come
    And I'll shoot him if it's what you ask
    But if you just take off your mask
    You'd find out everything's gone wrong.

    Now everybody's dead
    And they're driving past my old school
    And he's got his gun, he's got his suit on
    She says, babe, you look so cool, you look so cool, you look so cool
    You look so cool, you look so cool, you look so cool Writer/s: ADAM HANN, GEORGE DANIEL, MATTHEW HEALY, ROSS MACDONALD
