Shot in the Dark – By Adrian Krygowski
If you as how it burns
I picked the wrong night to learn
Concerned, I'm sure
I walked a straight line
Said you swerved, but you turned

If the promise was fake
Like the rent check was late
Or the shotgun you saved
From the fire, to survive
Left the damn thing engaged.
Left to my lonesome-y ways
Right from the spark
Keep a close watch for first thoughts of flame
Like a shot in the dark
Took the town just to date
Forged the debt that was paid
Found a ring I could save
I bought you a new life
Said it's better with age

Got blessed by the church
Did it by the Lord's word
Raising sons is hard work
I fought with the wife
Over minimum-wage
But this tattoo "I Love you, Irene"
Is where you left your mark
Like a candle still burning the flame
Of a shot in the dark
I only came for the lunch
You know, potatoes and such
She comes burstin' on in like
I gave her a line
She gave me a suckerpunch

Took the short way to my place
Showed her how I was raised
But the grin on her face
When she said she was late
I only had to hear once
I asked if you wanted to dance
You asked if I wanted to park
We never once really had a chance
Just a shot in the dark
