Soundtrack – The Boxer – Lyrics

In the shadow of a gun

In the shadow of a gun lyrics

Cover my eyes, lead me away

one step, two step… towards the water

past the door, past the door, let me out of here

feels like the future, looks like the past

Lover, lover, lover true.

Mother, father, son

Look in the water, what do I see?

The face of the face haunting me

Blood on his legs, eyes run red

and the scream of an angel in my head

Feels like the future, looks like the past.

Makes me wanna kill…

Lover, lover, lover true.

Mother, mother, father, son…

In the shadow of a gun, I break my love,

no feelings here, just a fist in a glove,

A fist in a glove.

Feels like the future, looks like the past

In the shadow of a shadow, the father in the son

In the shadow of a shadow, can never be one,

can never be one, the father in the son

can never be one, in the shadow of a gun.

Everything’s gonna be alright

Tell me everything will be all right

and you’ll be coming home with me for the night

Tell me nothing’s wrong

Baby, I don’t know where you are

I treat you wrong, made you compromise

You’re still the same, I see it in your eyes

Words dont mean a thing

What more can I say?

Tell me everything will be all right

Woman you’re not alone

Answer me, where’re you coming from

Show me, show me love

I need you now, more than ever

How does it feel

when all the world pulls you down

How does it feel

I don’t care, baby we can walk on air

Like the first time, tonight won’t be the last time

Tell me nothing’s wrong

Baby I don’t know where you are

Woman you’re not alone

Answer me where you’re coming from

Show me, show me love

I need you now, more than ever

Woman, you’re not alone

Answer me where you’re coming from

Show me show me love

I need you now, more than ever

    In the shadow of a gun!! Great song! We can´t find your albuns here in Brazil, , so I have to hear it on Youtube… the sound isn´t good, but… Man, keep wrinting songs, you are great! I´m your fan! Our band is trying to play “Caruso”. Hard work, man, hard work!

    Thank you, and excuses for my “english”.
