Nail, David - The Gun Lyrics




I was just kid
Didn't know you leave
If you'd return
If you even wanted me

I was angry
I couldn't understand
It was hard to trust
Any man

I don't blame you for tonight
It wasn't you I was looking for
Wrong place I picked the fight
Instead walking out that door
I guess it was bound to come
I just happened to have the gun

I was trouble
That's what people say
I suppose god
Made us both that way

Guess you raised me right
Like you wanted to
Never once around
Still just like you

I don't blame you for tonight
It wasn't you I was looking for
Wrong place I picked the fight
Instead walking out that door
I guess it was bound to come
I just happened to have the gun

They say they can't believe
That it ever took this long
As I sit here in the backseat of a cop car
Seems just like a dream
But I know it's real
Now that you're gone, no more pain to kill

I don't blame you for tonight
It wasn't you I was looking for
Wrong place I picked the fight
Instead walking out that door
I guess it was bound to come
I just happened to have the gun
I just happened to have the gun

    David, this is breathtaking. You invites us in and then take us right along with you on a powerfully intimate journey that touches a dark corner inside. Absolutely spellbinding.

  11. medo lance

    Nice work David pure sound 😍

  12. Branded JB

    David's music, his sound and even his lyrics are unique. Seems to be a blessing and a stumbling block...radio and labels don't know what to make of it. Luckily for those of us who enjoy and appreciate his music so much, he continues to follow his heart and make great original music. Thank you David

  13. Melanie Bonnet

    Damn. The vocal arrangement. Your voice. The story. Perfect mix. I love it. Well done, David.

  14. Dickson Head

    David, your new sound is a amazing, and hauntingly beautiful.

  15. Music Man

    Damn, i love David´s new Sound...got some magic on it...cool

  16. William Allman

    Love this..... damnit man, sounds like my days on earth so far......

  17. hunter7783

    My favorite track off this project. It was played before David came out at the last Indy show and fell in love with it then. Damn good track!

  18. WindWipper

    Such a unique sound, how does one classify it?

    Jarrod Freitas

    WindWipper Great song! But I was thinking the same thinly as well

    WindWipper

    Jarrod, yes, I like it; so haunting yet not too much. Just right. Real genius in this song.

    Rob Norton

    Ever since I first heard Heavy I've been saying this new sound is "Phil Collins meets Kings of Leon."

    Jarrod Freitas

    WindWipper definitely! David Nail just has a way with music....unreal....

    WindWipper

    I really relate to this song, knowing what it's like to come to blows & want to kill an abusive parent. But for the grace of God go i.
