Intro

Darling, put the gun down,

We don't have to do this now,

Darling, put the gun down.

Verse 1

And they tell me how suicide

Is an act of cowardice.

Do you know how much strength it takes

To erase your whole existence?

Pre-chorus 1

And there's no looking back tonight,

And there's no putting up a fight,

Now I can't turn it all around,

There will be one less sinner in this town.

Chorus

Darling, put the gun down,

We don't have to do this now.

Don't feed your tears with your spilled blood,

Don't crawl under the cozy mud.

You can't sleep before you wake up,

You can't be lost before you're found,

Darling, put the gun down,

Darling put the gun down.

Verse 2

And they tell me it's selfish.

How do they justify this?

Asking one to live life in vain?

Just to spare others from the pain?

Pre-chorus 2

Nothing will ever get better.

I'll never get it together.

My heart has gone into rigor.

So why not just let me pull the trigger?

Chorus

Darling, put the gun down,

We don't have to do this now.

Don't feed your tears with your spilled blood,

Don't crawl under the cozy mud.

You can't sleep before you wake up,

You can't be lost before you're found,

Darling, put the gun down,

Darling put the gun down.

Bridge

My fingers tremble, my eyes shed a tear,

When I see You standing right here.

Darling, oh darling, come to me, I'll save you.

Salvation, my creation, you will be, a brave you.

There's mercy, there's forgiveness,

There's a new day, and a new place.

Paradise can wait, you shine your light on this Hell now.

Darling, put the gun down,

Darling, put the gun down.

Chorus

Darling, put the gun down,

We don't have to do this now.

Don't feed your tears with your spilled blood,

Don't crawl under the cozy mud.

You can't sleep before you wake up,

You can't be lost before you're found,

Darling, put the gun down,

Darling put the gun down.

Outro

And I put the gun down then.

For the first time I see hope, Amen.

A/N: The theme is basically someone wanting to die and God talking them out of it by showing them hope. I cried when I wrote the bridge. This is somewhat personal, I guess.
