I was taught real young how to shoot a gun
But I aimed too high and I shot the sun
The dark side won
Oh, but it didn't take long just to take it too far
I kept on shootin' and I made me some stars
You know who you are

Well, if the sky ain't bullet proof
Neither is my heart
I've learned to love a life
left deep in the dark
'Cause when you left that day
I learned that I loved you, anyway
It's like a permanent phase

The full moon rises when the sun sets
So I tell myself this is as good as it gets
But I've worked with less
Well, I'm constantly changing
Waxing and waning
Hoping my baby will come out and save me
But I know he's lazy

Well I bought myself a ring
to lessen the void
They say there's a million things
wrong with my boy
But when he left that day
I learned that I loved him anyway
It's like a permanent phase

Every now and then
my mind gets crazy
But he said, "Baby I don't care,
'cause you amaze me"
And when he left that day
he knew that he loved me, anyway
It's like a permanent phase
