Hit Home

from by Callum Gentleman



A kind of love song ... written on Muriwai Beach, West Auckland, New Zealand Aotearoa


Your lips blazed red
My skin was on fire
Such brazen seduction
To kill a simple guy

You were every bit as gorgeous
As the warned me
Now all my thoughts are torn

I hear soft moans
You breathe down my neck
My body’s exploding
Your dreams roam through my head

You got a foothold in my heart
Now it’s a stranglehold
Your blood flows through my bones

You warned me to run
But I’m standing still
So come if love is your gun
Make your kill

Your bullet will hit home
Your bullet will hit home
Hit Home
