A gun for a lover

Hush.

Don’t speak, my dear, I beg you.
The walls have eyes and they are watching us. Hush, my dear, before they find us, before they start closing in.

You believe in the power of love. I believe in the power of guns. It’s heavy in my hand, and it’s not even loaded yet. Its time will come. The sun is burning, my love, but I don’t know if you feel it. You know I will find you, in your cave or cage. Wherever you are, I will hunt you down.

I walk on. I believe devils exist. One of them is watching over me since my guardian angel gave up. He knew it was all in vain and left me. He walked away. I’m walking away. Sand, sand everywhere. And the sun is burning like fire, my love. Soon from now you’ll feel what it is to burn. The bullet in my gun. The bullet in your head. The sunlight dies. The night is coming. But I won’t stop searching, my love. You’ve run away, but I will find you. You left me, but I will find you.

Nothing will hold me back. I scream your name, my love. Maybe you hear me and cringe at the sound of revenge. Are you hiding behind this wall? It’s not a safe wall. The wind could easily blow it away. And then you’d be powerless. The bullet in my gun. The bullet in your head. I’m trembling of anger, pure hate for you. How could you…? How could you leave me like that? If I ever see your pretty face – I hit the wall – it won’t be pretty anymore.

Sometimes, I cannot hold it any longer. Then I smash walls and hearts and thoughts. All because of you, my love, and when I’ll find you, you’ll be smashed too.

Sounds. There are always sounds, even though it’s silent here.

We won’t survive. That’s one thing I know. He’ll find us. He’ll find us, the thought scares me. We’re already at his mercy. The walls are closing in.

Hush.

Don’t you ever want to shoot the pain away? It seems so impossible that you still love him. Love is always over in the morning. By now, you should be drowning in regret. Face the truth, my love!  Soon it will be over. Your prayers are worthless and won’t save you. Can you already hear me shouting your name? The walls must be trembling, like you are too. Face me.
A bullet in my gun.

A shot for the pain inside.

Read the lyrics when hearing the song!

The song is one of my favourite songs ever. Powerful, poetic and just great. Especially combined with the lyrics this song is mind blowing, and way better than my story.

Music once more: lyrics

Noooo! Another post about music? Oh god, how much more can we take?

Oh yes, my dears, I won’t let you go… Another post about music and your conscience obliges you to read it!
But don’t worry too much, this time it’s about lyrics. Yes, lyrics. Not all the good music has lyrics. Most songs do have it though (otherwise we don’t call it songs actually), and mostly in English. Makes it easier to share them with you!

One of the best pieces of lyrics I know, it this:
We should have each other to tea, huh?
We should have each other with cream
(The Lovecats by The Cure)

If anyone ever says this to me, I’ll agree directly and go buy some cream. Then marry and have babies.

Sometimes I feel critical and then these will do:
Just victims of the in-house drive-by
They say jump, you say how high
(Bullet in the Head by Rage Against The Machine)

I can’t stand people who just accept everything. I like to scream when I’m not pleased or when I disagree.

With the sunlight died and night above me
With a gun for a lover and a shot for the pain inside
You run for cover in the temple of love
You run for another it’s all the same
For the wind will blow and throw your walls aside
(Temple of Love by Sisters of Mercy)

This song is entirely great. Stunning. Mindblowing. As soon as I read the lyrics along with hearing the song, I fell in love with it. It’s genius and just GREAT.
