    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.
