I saw those three little words starin' back at me
your eyes told on your heart, but I pretended not to see
then I leaned in for a kiss, before those words could leave your lips
and I knew what you were thinking', "why is she avoiding this........?"
I'm a little bit Gun Shy, still licking my wounds from the last time
hearts been shot up like Old Glory, and it's.... ashamed to fly
Oh Yeah...., I'm a little bit Gun Shy, L word sounds like a battle cry
I'm not quite ready for suicide
Yeah...., I'm a little bit Gun Shy
You tell me that you're different you shoot straight from the heart
but fairy tales seem more like, a crap shot in the dark
I could let you have your way, pull back the hammer and take aim
before you pull that trigger, still got one thing left to say.........
No, I don't wanna hide and I don't want you to run
but I damn sure ain't ready to face that gun...
Oh Yeah, I'm a little bit, just a little bit, Gun Shy....
