DOUBLE BARREL SHOTGUN

we climbed the stairs to my first apartment
find a keyhole in the dark
all out of breath there in the bathroom
both pressed up against the tiles
she pulled the towel rod right out of the wall
that was our love
and it hits me
again it's like
it's like a double barrel shotgun
and it's like a life that kills you twice

my narrow bed was only a single
but we fit into the night
i'd hear the street there at the window
let the buses count the time
i'd go and find the couch to let her get some sleep
that was our love
and it hits me
again it's like
it's like a double barrel shotgun
and it's like a life that kills you twice
and it's like a double barrel shotgun

the sun's reflected even when you close your eyes
yeah that was us
we were golden then
and like a double barrel shotgun
we were like a knife that kills you twice
and it's like a double barrel shotgun
you were like a life that killed me twice
you killed me twice
