  When heaven or hell takes this life I,ll be done      I,ll be done


Lyrics

You and I went deeply you and I went far and wide
You and I went gently you and I went for a ride
But somewhere in the ashes of this burning lovers game
Somewhere you decided that you would find another flame

And as you lay sleeping with your eye softly shut
I will be cleaning my gun, cleaning my gun
When heaven or hell takes this life, I,ll be done

You never lied to me never said youd be around for long
Somehow I believed that you would be my only one
Cause you know where I,m going you know where I,m coming from
But now this train is slowly coming to its final destination

And as you lay sleeping with your eye softly shut
I will be cleaning my gun, cleaning my gun
When heaven of hell takes this life, I,ll be done
Cleaning my gun, cleaning my gun
When heaven or hell takes this life I,ll be done
As you lay sleeping with your eyes softly shut
I know it ain,t me that you’re dreaming of

Mama always told me love would save me from myself
Daddy always told me love would take me straight to hell
Sometimes they were righteous sometimes they were oh so wrong cause I,m

Cleaning my gun, cleaning my gun
When heaven or hell takes this life I,ll be done
Cleaning my gun, cleaning my gun
When heaven or hell takes this life I,ll be done
I,ll be done

First off, this is great. I'm glad you did it. Just made my day. But I believe that the last G in each verse is actually a G/Am7.

I want to post or [tab]
