TAINTED SHOTS

I could be your lonely hero

Trying to catch your eyes running through my mind 

Nothing I could find

No one I could be

Only loneliness and

Someone else looking back at me

 

I could’ve been much more than a hero

I could’ve been your warrior in times of need

Got to be more to this?

More than I‘ve seen

To protect us from  

The enemy within 

 

I still can remember

Tainted shots of you

[Hook and chorus in]

I miss those days

Your simple ways and wicked ways

A sentimental smile in your eyes

Why couldn’t you have stayed around?

For a while

 

Why didn’t we talk things over?

Why didn’t we speak the words of truth?

So many miles ahead

We will never walk

Now the hope is gone

And we are all alone 

 

I still can remember

Tainted shots of you

[Hook and chorus in]

I miss those days

Your simple ways and wicked ways

A sentimental smile in your eyes

Why couldn’t you have stayed around?

For a while

 

In a daydream I pretend, we’re together again

People waving goodbye

We fly over Montauk Long Island sky

Can you see the sun shining through?

Over rolling hills by the Irish Sea

We never been this close

I realize now what I need the most
