KATE & ANNA MCGARRIGLE
"I Don't Know"

Love... love is like a bullet in a gun
Aimed at your heart
Tears your heart apart
You scream and you bleed
Fall down to your knees
Reaching for a hand
But the hunter turns his back
He hears his trumpet sound
And the sun is going down

You ask me what it's all about
I say I don't know
Should you stay and work it out
I say I don't think so
Someone else will come along and
Hold you close
Someone's lost out in a storm
And looking for safe-haven
Light your lamp but hold it high
Before you let the stranger in

You ask me what it's all about
I say I don't know
Should you stay and work it out
Give it up! Let it go!

Love is like a bullet in a gun
Aimed at your heart
Tears your heart apart
You scream and you bleed
And reach out for a hand
And fall down on your knees
Man is truly the cruelest of beasts

You ask me what it's all about
I say I don't know
Should you stay and work it out
I say I don't think so
Life is short and grief can tear a heart apart
Life is short , life is sweet
This much I know
Should you stay and work it out
I say I don't think so
