Pistola Lyrics

by Mos Def

Shatter, shatter

Believe when I tell you I never meant to break your heart
May God pick up the pieces of dreams that fall apart
Forgive me and forget me, make a brand new start
Don't blink your eyes and say goodbye
I know, you know, I know, you know that love is danger

Criminal minded, gangster of love
Charms in your arms, your gun is wild warm
Worn, bang bang, shoot 'em up
Tips in your clip, click clack, use 'em up

Bad intentions and a very good shot
X marks the spot where you cross the heart
Candlelight vigil on my memory block
Commemorate the date where the bomb got dropped

Love, steady war no more
Put your weapon away, quit collecting the slain
She said, "You're right, I don't wanna fight
I just like the fire and the flashing lights"

Believe me when I tell you I never meant to break your heart
May God pick up the pieces of dreams that fall apart
Forgive me and forget me, make a brand new start
Don't blink your eyes and say goodbye
I know, you know that I know, you know that love is danger

If you are to fall in love
Then where should you stand to begin with?
And when the falling's done
How bad should you plan to get injured?

And if you land on your feet
Do it count as a fall or a jump?
And do it feel like a fall when the hands that pushed you
Were holding you up?

Close encounter, got you wide open
Heartache got your boom box going
Music and vocals, lonely and soulful
You're back in the scene where your sweet dreams are so true

Believe me when I tell you I never meant to break your heart
May God pick up the pieces of dreams that fall apart
Forgive me and forget me, make a brand new start
Don't blink your eyes and say goodbye
'Cause I know, you know that I know, you know what love is

Cowboys and girls, oh baby
I remember when we used to play
Cowboys and girls, oh baby
I remember when we used to play
Cowboys and girls, oh baby
I remember when we used to play

Cowboys and girls, shoot 'em up, bang bang
Shatter, shatter, cowboys and girls
Shoot 'em up, bang bang
We at the movies and you're a star, get down
