New Model Army

New Model Army - One Bullet

rate me

In a ring of men, with money changing hands

All the gypsy kings, they were gathered from miles around

I was tapped on the shoulder, stripped to the waist

But I was quick, quicker than all of them

I watched him fall, then he staggered back

There was blood on my hands, but my face was intact

I picked up all my money and I walked away

It was like I was chosen, but I did not choose

I was in love, just the one time

It was years ago, I still have her photograph

I look at it sometimes, when I'm on my own

I think of her sometimes, when I'm on my own

We fought the once and she went down

I'm sorry now, but you can't go back

I was wrong and I have paid

Carry it with me for the rest of my days.

Do you keep one bullet left for yourself

For when it's all over and done?

My grandmother's house, it's all empty now

I live here alone, nobody bothers me

I work on shift down at the bakery

And I fix up the house and I try to be happy

My father's rage is still in me

I bury it down where nobody sees

Everyone knows me here, but they don't speak

Maybe that's just the way that I like it to be

Do you keep one bullet left for yourself

For when it's all over and done?

I've gone to ground - just like the animals

In the fading light where all men go

Gone to ground - just like the animals
