i feel like a bullet (in the gun of robert ford) lyrics – elton john

like a corn in a field i cut you down
i threw the last punch too hard
after years of going steady, well, i thought that it was time
to throw in my hand for a new set of cards

and i can’t take you dancing out on the weekend
i figured we’d painted too much of this town
and i tried not to look as i walked to my wagon
and i knew then i had lost what should have been found
i knew then i had lost what should have been found

and i feel like a bullet in the gun of robert ford
i’m low as a paid *ss*ssin is
you know i’m cold as a hired sword
i’m so ashamed, can’t we patch it up
you know i can’t think straight no more
you make me feel like a bullet, honey, in the gun
in the gun of robert ford

like a child when his toys have been stepped on
that’s how it all seemed to me
i burst the bubble that both of us lived in
and i’m d*mned if i’ll ever get rid of this guilt that i feel

and if looks could kill then i’d be a dead man
your friends and mine don’t call no more
h*ll, i thought it was best, but now i feel branded
breaking up’s sometimes like breaking the law
breaking up’s sometimes like breaking the law

and i feel like a bullet in the gun of robert ford
i’m low as a paid *ss*ssin is
you know i’m cold as a hired sword
i’m so ashamed, can’t we patch it up
you know i can’t think straight no more
you make me feel like a bullet, honey, in the gun
in the gun of robert ford

(repeat)
