Gunshots

I thought I heard gunshots last night
Underneath the broken streetlight
Back when this was the bad part of town
All off-track betting joints and dive bars
Rent was cheap and it was well worth it

You called me up long-distance last night
To talk around the problem and fight
I wish there was something much better left to say
But guys like you, you know you can’t really have friends
You save it all for one good woman

So I drove north until it got cold
Where the deer all wait by the sides of the road
Waiting for just the right chance to jump
‘Cuz safety lies over the next hill, always
Yeah I hope we get it right
I hope we get it right
I hope we get it right
