you came up again in conversation
someone mentioned the sound of hearts breaking
and there you were hiding on the tip of my tongue
and you know my mouth is, above all, a loaded gun

and you are my gunpowder girl

i think you’d have liked my new place
enough room for all my guitar cases
someone once told me that you don’t look like much
i couldn’t describe how i am fire at your touch

and how you are my gunpowder girl

how can you haunt a house you’ve never been in
i see the smoke you blow settled on the couch i got from a new friend
i know exactly the way you’d move from room to room
you light your fireworks and leave well before the boom
ah, just like my gunpowder girl

i thought of dropping you a letter
it falls to me to make things better
but i’m not prepared for any one outcome
so i cut off my trigger finger, not to be outdone

ah, not by my gunpowder girl
