Barrel Of A Gun

I know a movie star
Ive got her plastered to my wall.
Just like were dear old friends
Like she already knows me.
Shes as perfect as she seems,
Lifts me right out the mezzanine.
I finally fell in love,
Id been waiting forever.

Four, three, two, one
When at the barrel of a gun
Keep my head way down.
Stay out Ill stay in.
Half dead, half numb
Shes enough to make me warm
Its all so safe and sound.

Lie back and fast asleep
If you could see what I could see.
Drip drop a lovely dream.

Goddamn you movie star,
Cant you just stay a minute more.
Wed be the best of friends
You could stay here forever.

Four, three, two, one
When at the barrel of a gun
Keep my head way down.
Stay out Ill stay in.
Half dead, half numb
Shes enough to make me warm
Its all so safe and sound.

She will be sweet on me
Just like a mystery.
Its not so hard to see
If Im not mistaken.
She comes from far away
Gets closer everyday.
And all that I can say
Shes all I want and all that I live for.

Four, three, two, one
When at the barrel of a gun
Keep my head way down.
Stay out Ill stay in.
Half dead, half numb
Shes enough to make me warm
Its all so safe and sound.
