Dancing With A Gun Lyrics

by Jack's Mannequin

Wake up, It's Monday afternoon
We're still in bed, Oh what to do?
You call your friends but can't get through
And I write songs, to sing, for you
Sometimes we're stuck, most times we're drifting
Most times we're drifting but tonight, let's move

Think fast, we're young
Remember when the spotlight cracks
We're dancing with a gun
Your hands will shake
Just take another shot in the dark
Don't keep your safety on
As fast as it comes, it's gone
But we're not through dancing
Dancing with a gun

It's 5 o'clock, the sidewalks filled
A world so ready to break
How will you stand surrounded by a crowd?
Your eyes protecting, a scream, so slow loud
So looks could kill, but yours
They shout, come on let's shout
Don't stand still

Think fast, we're young
Remember when a spotlight cracks
We're dancing with a gun
Your hand will shake
Just take another shot in the dark
Don't keep your safety on
As fast as it comes, it's gone
But we're not through dancing
Dancing with a gun

(You gotta think fast)
Think fast
And you'll remember when the spotlight cracks
You're dancing with a gun
Your hands will shake
And we'll take another shot in the dark
Shot in the dark,

Now think fast, we're young
Remember when a spotlight cracks
We're dancing with a gun
You're hand will shakes
Just take another shot in the dark
Don't keep your safety on
As fast as it comes, it's gone
And we're not through dancing
Dancing with a gun
