Put The Gun Down

(Lyons)

Well, that’s me on the pavement
Kicking my heels and digging the dirt
That’s you in the papers
Kick me when I’m down – it’s all I deserve

We’re one but we’re not the same
When you’re not catching my eye
But don’t say ‘no change today’
As you go and pass me by

It don’t make no sense
It don’t make no sense

Put the gun down

That’s me with my can in one hand
The other stretched out for more
And that’s you with your head in the clouds
Your feet firmly on the floor

We’re one but we’re not the same
Mistakes, I’ve made a few
Cos it seems like only yesterday
I was once just like you
