One Reason (Gun)

I was thinking ‘bout the time When we were young, swimming against the tide Was I blind cause all I saw Was the future in your eyes Now those days are over and nothing’s as it seems Reality has changed our lives Taken away our dreams I was talking to myself Lying that things would work out right Make your choice – sink or swim In the river of life tonight ‘Cos all I need to feel right now is rain against my skin I’ve been waiting in the desert for my ship to come in So give me one reason why we’re not together If I had one reason I would feel so much better I guess that you’re leaving has left me with nothing I was touched by your honesty but now I’m forgotten Now I’m living in a daze Trying hard to laugh in the face of love When we’re born we learn to live With what we can’t rise above Cars go by, days drag on It’s like some kind of gravity that’s pulling me under So give me one reason why you’re screaming in silence Just give me one reason why the whole world is laughing And now we’re all together, liars and lovers I was shocked by the things you said But now I’ve recovered I’m doing fine without you Let all this guilt be on your head Never thought I would see you go Never thought you would go so slow When you’re down at the bottom There’s really only one way left Just the memory of what you never head So give me one reason welcome to heaven Why don’t start believing life is forever I guess that fate told me you were there for the taking All you get is one chance in life and then you’re forgotten Just give me one reason why you’re right out of fashion And now your heart’s calling for what I have to offer And there is no denying you had something so special But you threw it back in my face and now you’re forgotten I’ve had enough and I heard you say life is forever I’ve had enough I’m walking
