about

Written in memory of Steve.

lyrics

It's not fair to you that I can't be
As in love with you as you are with me
So take back this ring, I can't wear it anymore
I finally slept through the night, I threw it on the floor

I got your call on my answering machine
You sounded at peace, if I could only have seen
You sitting alone, drinking in the dark
Saying your goodbye to your broken heart

Your momma found you in the morning
Your heart shot clean out
By a gun you kept to keep the bad things out
I never did think that you could take things this far
To ease that pain that I caused in your heart

But when a gun goes off
And there's no one around
Does it make a sound?
Well, are you listening now?
When a gun goes off
And there's no one here
You may not hear the sound
But it will resonate all of your years, all of your years

It's been a few years now since you've been gone
And my mind's stopped racing long enough to put it in a song
Your memory, it chills and it haunts me
You ended you pain, it's come full circle to me

But when a gun goes off
And there's no one around
Does it make a sound?
Well, are you listening now?
When a gun goes off
And there's no one here
You may not hear the sound
But it will resonate all of your years, all of your years
This will resonate all of my years
