Song lyrics
Lisa: Leave me out with the waste
This is not what I do
It's the wrong kind of place
To be thinking of you
It's the wrong time
For somebody new
It's a small crime
And I've got no excuse

Lisa: Is that alright with you?
Give my gun away when it's loaded
Is that alright with you?
If you don't shoot it how am I supposed to hold it
Is that alright with you?
Give my gun away when it's loaded
Is that alright with you?
With you.

Damien: Leave me out with the waste
This is not what I do
It's the wrong kind of place
To be cheating on you
It's the wrong time
She's pulling me through
It's a small crime
And I've got no excuse

Damien: Is that alright with you?
Give my gun (Lisa: it's not alright) away when it's loaded
Is that alright with you?
If you don't shoot it how (Lisa: it's not alright) am I supposed to hold it
Is that alright with you?
Give my gun away (Lisa: its not alright) when it's loaded
Is that alright
Is that alright with you?

Damien: Is that alright with you?
Give my gun away (Lisa: its not alright) when it's loaded
Is that alright with you?
If you don't shoot it how (Lisa: its not alright) am I supposed to hold it
Is that alright with you?
Give my gun away (Lisa: its not alright) when it's loaded
Is that alright
Is that alright with you?

(Slight Overlap..)
Damien: Is that alright yeah? with you?
Lisa: Give my gun away when it's loaded
Damien: Is that alright yeah?
Lisa: If you don't shoot it how am I supposed to hold it
Damien: Is that alright yeah?
Lisa: Give my gun away when it's loaded
Damien: Is that alright, is that alright?

D & L: Is that alright with you?

Damien: No...

If you've ever been in that relationship and been cheated on or stupidly cheated on the love of your life in a moment of weakness then you'll understand the lyrics. And the repetition of the lyrics isn't just because they had nothing else to say it's them both asking, is that alright? It's not alright, even after the relationship has broken down and it doesn't matter what the other person thinks anymore. But still you ask yourself if that would be k with them because they were such a huge part f your life and your still not over it. And your regrets are massive and you wish you could get it back, but you can't al because of that one tiny moment of weakness

I love this song. Lisa's voice is so beautiful...wish she would have done more on the album...but this song is just so good, it's sick. Seriously, Damien Rice is so ahead of his time.

This song.. i can't find the words even. i love it. I totally love it. and for all of you that dosnt understand the lyrics, i think you have to be in a certain place in life, or you've got to been through certain things to really feel what they mean.

The voices are perfect for this song. It makes it so real. Really good work Lisa and Damien!

I think the repeting of the words just makes it better. It makes you really feel it. I dont know. I cant explain it really. This is a song i will be listening to a long long long time, over and over again.

i love this song, its soft and mellow but intense at the same time
i love damien's coffee stained voice and with lisa's the song is so dynamic
the lyrics, however, are understood when they're needed to..when u feel them, which is y i feel they're repeated so often

i dunno, just a thought

It is a great song! and the lyrics are good, maybe it is repeated over and over, but i think that was the intension. if you read the song tekst you would understand Lisa and Damien both have a great voice. in Unplayed piano they also have a duet and its great!

great great song. first heard it on the Grey's Anatomy 3x09, then it was all over the radio. it just somehow nesltes into your head,takes it own space... and connects itself with a variety of feelings within you!

absolutely love it.

It's such a pretty song!! I prefer the part when he is singing, because I just love his voice! This is the first song I've heard of him but I just loved it immediately. I agree that the lyrics aren't that good (I don't really get it..) and that they're repeated too much. ANd I think that the 'Is that alright' is really beautifull but they say it too often and I'm afraid I'm gonna be tired of it after a while. BUt besides that, I absolutely love it!! Indeed it's so peaceful and yet so powerful. I also like the video clip very much, a bit weird maybe but nice.

It'a a perfust song.
It is slow and quite and in the same time so intense.
I agree with the 1 reaction, the sing the same lyrics -they could do it differently -but it is still a great song happy I got to know it!!

What a great song! The vocal by Lisa is astounishing!

Although the song is way to short, and maybe they could sing a variety of lyrics in stead of just the same over and over
