Chekhov's Gun


if music player doesn't appear, click here


he lived in a two by four full of nothing
except a fifty inch that's always on
he checks his gun out from this song
he's gonna use it in the chorus

he said a prayer, drove his ford out to the lot
sat in the dark, turned the engine off
he lit a smoke
while the radio scans the night for this heartbreak song

he shot him in the eye
because he didn't like the way he looked at her

it's just like Anton said don't
leave a gun lying in a song unless it's gonna fire

she saw right then when he walked through this door
he was The One she'd been waiting for
but she couldn't see
she was gonna lose it in the chorus

she let herself in, helped herself to the gin
sat on their couch and waited patiently
at verse four she hears them laugh
and the key turn in the door

she shot him in the eye
because she didn't like the way he looked at her

it's just like Anton said don't
leave a gun lying in a song unless it's gonna fire

well the good doctor comes and looks me in the eye
i tell him, straight up doc, i ain't gonna lie
when i put that gun there i knew
i was gonna use it in the chorus

he shot him in the eye
because he didn't like the way he looked at her

she shot him in the eye
because she didn't like the way he looked at her

it's just like Anton said don't
leave a gun lying in a song unless it's gonna fire
