Fistful O' Dynamite

lyrics

[Verse 1: Moonlet]
Cold war in the heart of your family home
Have I lost control?
Got a lot of shit bottled up that I can'y take anymore
In on the ground floor when I promised you that we were forever
We were in this together
Well I never told you anything that I ever meant
When I told you you were heaven sent
What I left out was the poison in the pen
The sentiment was cruel
A fool in love to me will always and forever be a fool

Chorus:
Such futile plans
Just holding hands
And I can't understand you
(Love lost by the dying of the firelight)
Misguided hearts
So far apart
And I can't understand you
(Scorched earth and a fistful o' dynamite)

[Verse 2: Moonlet]
Drawn lines but the blood ties tight
So tell me, darlin', tell me
How are the weans
They alright?
Well, one in a million, billiion, trillion stories have a happy end
To a better one, my friend
On whom my life depends
I'll say I'm sick of living in the gloom
In a room without a view
I'll say I'm feeling blue
This all means nothing without you
I love you, can't you see?
I wish you'd come back to me
I'll tie a yellow ribbon 'round the old oak tree

Chorus:
Such futile plans
Just holding hands
And I can't understand you
(Love lost by the dying of the firelight)
Misguided hearts
So far apart
And I can't understand you
(Scorched earth and a fistful o' dynamite)
