Firing Lines

lyrics

Taking that shot in the heart again, love
Pin a target on my chest, love
One more time around that track
You gave me love but I gave it back again, love

Early morning I awake, love
The last meal I couldn't face, love
Lead me out at the break of dawn
And stand me up against the wall again, love

I'm out of time, my hands are tied
I see you there on the firing line
Nothing to say, all hell to pay
I'm on my way

I'd have told you anything, love
To see you lying that bed, love
All the lovers of my life
Are stood abreast with rifles high again, love

Work my way along the line, love
With protestations, reasons why, love
Sheer desertion was the charge
From every eye a full barrage again, love

I'm out of time, my hands are tied
I see you there on the firing line
Nothing to say, all hell to pay
I'm on my way

Whoa no you don't, whoa no you don't
Whoa no you don't, whoa no
Whoa no you don't, whoa no you don't
Whoa no you don't, whoa no

Taking that shot in the heart again, love
Open fire, I insist, love
One more time around that track
You gave me love but I gave it back again, love

I'm out of time, blindfold my eyes
I am still here in your firing line
Nothing to say, all hell to pay
I'm on my way
