The Girl Behind The Man Behind The Gun
(Michael Timmins )


No guarantee of happy endings
I like my stories cut to the bone
a mother of three is awakening
she's the girl behind the man behind the gun

Apples and toast for the children
the hard push to get out the door
arrive just in time for the anthem
she's the girl behind the man behind the gun

A quick stop at Jen's for the gossip
she checks in at work for her sched
there's a rumour going round about a failed op
she's the girl behind the man behind the gun

Back home to something missing
she tries not to think of him now
nothing to jinx his returning
she's the girl behind the man behind the gun

A shiny black car in the driveway
two men in dress at the door
ignore them and go on pretending
that I'm the girl behind the man behind the gun
I'm the girl behind the man behind the gun
I'm the girl behind the man behind the gun

No guarantee of happy endings
