with a single gunshot, my world shifted
and the truths I'd held dear to my heart
became tainted with the poison of a lie
how could I have stopped this tragedy?

I've never believed in destiny till now
when I look into your eyes I know
I'll find understanding and serenity
-- is that because you've lived for so long?
then you smile and the illusion is shattered

with a single gunshot, my world shifted
and the life I'd known changed irrevocably
now it feels like another man's life
is the one I left on that warehouse floor

I've never believed in legends till now
I'd thought I'd seen everything to see
but I'd never seen lightning rise from a corpse
--- you explain it away so easily like it's old hat
and perhaps it is to you but it still amazes me

with a single gunshot, my world shifted
and the dreams I cherished sputtered away in the wind
I'm left to sweep up the pile of ashes
while you rise like a phoenix from the flames

I've never believed in prophecies
but I'm beginning to think I've been cursed
or at least badly blessed somehow
-- you were supposed to be bad luck
but you're a raven of a different kind

with a single gunshot, my world shifted
and the things that were crystal clear frosted over like ice
and now the only vision I can see
is a future where time has no meaning

I've never believed in love till now
at least not the kind you'd kill someone over
but when I fell for you I wasn't looking
-- you'd laugh if I told you that, I know
but this feeling is deeper than a fantasy

with a single gunshot, my world shifted
and nothing is ever going to be the same
