about

A dirty acoustic blues song dealing with the frustration of having feelings for someone that are either unrequited or taken advantage of.

lyrics

One more shot straight through my heart
Cupid’s arrow comes my way
I've been told time and time again
Just can't win if you don't play
Been taking lessons from the best in the world
But still I feel like I'm the worst
Everybody's reaching for the girl on the moon
Don't know how, but I gotta get there first

CHORUS:
Gonna take a call to the lost and found
Gonna jump a train right outta town
Got one shot, not gonna let you down
You’re a stone-cold fox and I’m a hungry hound

Walk right in, sit my ass down
Too many things I’ve got to learn
Five step plan, reach step one
That's when I start to feel the burn
I need ignition to light this dying flame
Get into gear and take command
Can’t fight the fever, I gotta make you mine
Hearts on fire, baby don’t you understand?


(CHORUS)

You lift me up, you tear me down
Set me straight and you spin me around
But you just ignore me when I wanna take control
You know this back and forth is messing with my soul
