This is a story I wrote into a song about 2 lovers who run around doing wrong such as making enemies and stealing from people in a major way,...major enough that the law has been involved and they are finally going to be found and taken down,....keep in mind that the characters in this song are not bad people,....they've just made bad choices...

Verse 1

Would you tell me what to do,

If i said that I needed you to,

cause everything we do depends,

on all the bullets money and sin,

when will we stop running from,

all of the enemies we make,

and how much more blood do we take,

before we both become innate,

Pre-Chorus

In the dark,

silently we lay,

holding our toungs,

now it's too late,

Chorus

and now were found,

and the shot ring spreads,

and everything oh,

well it all turns red,

and the siren sounds,

and the shot ring spreads,

and everything oh,

well it all turns red,

Verse 2

Would you tell me how to live,

or would you only sit there and fib,

cause everything I say to you,

is like a burning fire in my shoes,

when will you stop saying,

that what we do is only right,

cause right now I am telling you,

tonights gonna be our last night,

Chorus 2

and now were found,

and the shot ring spreads,

and everything oh,

well it all turns red,

and the siren soundsz,

and the shot ring spreads,

an everything oh,

well it all turns red,

Bridge

On the ground,

silently we lay,

turning black and blue,

now its too late

Outro before chorus 3

so you see me fading,

holding on to something,

wondering where i'm headed,

Chorus 3

and now were found,

and the shot ring spreads,

and everything oh,

well it all turns red,

and now were going,

to someplace,

everywhere i'm looking,

it's all to much

I love this song also, I like it much better when you pick your moments and only draw out certain lines. I also love the message! You are a skilled story teller.
