Gunshot – Ilana Charnelle

From the album A Minute of Your Time (2020).

I heard a gunshot outside my window 

I thought I loved you but now I don’t know

I thought my words had all dried out

I heard a gunshot and pictured your mouth 

And the way you can say anything 

And make it feel like a kiss or a wound 

Time will keep me restless and wandering 

But it’ll get the best of you 

I heard the stories, my eyes were open 

I thought you were god but I stopped hoping 

You stole the things I could never say 

I heard the stories but worshipped anyway 

And I hope one day the tide starts turning 

I hope you’re punished for all you did 

Time will make martyrs of the deserving 

And I hope it shares everything you hid 

I heard a gunshot outside my window 

I thought I loved you, but now I don’t know

I thought my words had all dried out 

I heard a gunshot but pictured your mouth

I heard a gunshot but pictured your mouth
