FOUND A GIRL AND I GAVE HER A RING

SHE WAS EVERYTHING I'M LOOKING FOR

IT'S OVER NOW

AND THIS IS HOW
I LOST THE WAR

 

MY HEAD GOT HEAVY AS A CHRISTMAS CAKE

AND I MADE A BREAK FOR THE DOOR

IT STARTS SO YOUNG 
YOU SHARP YOUR TONGUE

I LOST THE WAR

 

BUT YOU'RE NOT THE ONLY ONE
WITH A GUN FOR A MOUTH

BUT YOU'RE NOT THE ONLY ONE
WITH A GUN FOR A MOUTH

 

WE KEPT ON TALKING TILL THE MORNING LIGHT

AND THE NIGHT WASN'T NIGHT ANYMORE

BENEATH THE TREES
WE CRUSHED THE LEAVES

I LOST THE WAR

 

BUT YOU'RE NOT THE ONLY ONE
WITH A GUN FOR A MOUTH

NO YOU'RE NOT THE ONLY ONE
WITH A MOUTH FOR A GUN

GUN FOR A MOUTH

 

YOU CAN SHOUT AND SPIT AND KISS ME WITH IT

POUT AND FROWN AND SHOOT ME DOWN

 

BUT THERE'S A REDHEADED ANGEL IN THE WINGS

SINGING LAY YE DOWN YOUR SWORD

IT'S OVER NOW

AND THIS IS HOW
I LOST THE WAR

 

BUT YOU'RE NOT THE ONLY ONE WITH A GUN FOR A MOUTH

NO YOU'RE NOT THE ONLY ONE WITH A GUN FOR A MOUTH

 

YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH

YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH

YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH

BUT YOU'RE NOT THE ONLY ONE WITH A GUN FOR A MOUTH

 

GOT A GUN FOR A MOUTH

GOT A GUN FOR A MOUTH

 

GUN GOT A GUN

GUN GOT A GUN

GUN GOT A GUN

GUN GOT A GUN
