Bullets
Passenger Lyrics


He’s been collecting since the age of nine
Every shiny bullet that he could find
Built himself a house with the wooden floors
Put the shiny bullets in a chest of drawers

Well his wife’s long gone and the kids have grown
And trees they fall down on their own
Memories fade like an old slideshow
But the bullets still shine like coins in the snow
Well one day took himself into town
The men with a truck well they came around
They took the television and the gun from the war
And almost every bullet from the chest of drawers

Well he came back home and found the house in a mess
Run into the bedroom and the old brown chest
Well he didn’t care much for the VCR
But he cried for the space where the bullets were

Well the men took the truck down into town
And they sold all the silver they had found
But they couldn’t sell the bullets 'cause they weren’t live rounds
So they dug a big hole put the bullets in the ground

Well he doesn’t leave the house much anymore
'Cause the men are gonna come like they did before
And he’ll hold onto the three or four
Bullets that they left in the chest of drawers
Well the bullets that they left in the chest of drawers

He’s been collecting since the age of nine
Every shiny bullet that he could find
Built himself a house with the wooden floors
Put the shiny bullets in a chest of drawers

Well his wife’s long gone and the kids have grown
And trees they fall down on their own
Memories fade like an old slideshow
But the bullets still shine like coins in the snow

Well one day took himself into town
The men with a truck well they came around
Took the television and the gun from the war
And almost every bullet from the chest of drawers

Well he came back home and found the house in a mess
Run into the bedroom and the old brown chest
Didn’t care much for the VCR
But he cried for the space where the bullets were

The men drove the truck down into town
And sold all the silver they had found
But they couldn’t sell the bullets cause they weren’t live rounds
So they dug a big hole put the bullets in the ground

Now he doesn’t leave the house much anymore
Cause the men are gonna come like they did before
And he’ll hold onto the three or four
Bullets that they left in the chest of drawers
Oh yeah the bullets that they left in the chest of drawers

He's been collecting since the age of nine
Every shiny bullet that he could find
Built himself a house with the wooden floors
Put the shiny bullets in a chest of drawers

Well his wife's long gone and the kids have grown
And trees they fall down on their own
Memories fade like an old slideshow
But the bullets still shine like coins in the snow

Well one day took himself into town
The men with a truck well they came around
They took the television and the gun from the war
And almost every bullet from the chest of drawers

Well he came back home and found the house in a mess
Run into the bedroom and the old brown chest
Well he didn't care much for the VCR
But he cried for the space where the bullets were

Well the men took the truck down into town
And they sold all the silver they had found
But they couldn't sell the bullets 'cause they weren't live rounds
So they dug a big hole put the bullets in the ground

Well he doesn't leave the house much anymore
'Cause the men are gonna come like they did before
And he'll hold onto the three or four
Bullets that they left in the chest of drawers
Well the bullets that they left in the chest of drawers

Passenger is the only artist I know, that makes me smile, laugh, cry, dream and having goosebumps at the same time.
Every song of you is beautiful in its very own way but they are all united by your unique style of putting feelings in what you sing.
Sitting at the window, a cup of tea in my hands, watching the rain fall and listening to Passenger...I can't imagine a better way to let my problems vanish at least for a while. Thank you for always being there for me, Mike, even if you don't know me.

Honestly you spoke my mind and my heart. He has made an impact in my life with his music .

when you're waiting for a happy ending and there isn't one.... you know you have grown up.

Is it any Wonder

It's a happy ending.. None of the people actually used the bullets.
