Blunderbuss Lyrics by Jack White

Blunderbuss is a 'gun' of a debut album by rocker Jack White.

Lyrics

Had my dream I held your hand on matbroad avenue (?)
We crossed the road and never spoke to another as we flew
Left your man alone in drag laughing there at us
A Romantic bust a blunder turned explosive blunderbuss

An ancient grand hotel of Persian thread and ivory
And when your man would turn his head I’d see you look at me
Pools of brown and cigarette (?)
And demons in your pocket that sang romance
Performed a dance inside a silver locket

Corner exit that’s not enough to walk out standing straight
Designed by men so ladies would have to lean back in their gate
You grabbed my arm and left with me but you were not allowed to
You took me to a public place to quietly blend into
Such a trick pretending not to be doing what you want to
But seems like everybody does this every waking moment

I laid you down and touched you
Like the two of us both needed
Safe to say that others might not approve of this and pleaded
So selfish them would be there crying
Who would be brave to argue
Doing what two people need is never on the menu

Check out the lyrics to Love Interruption or Machine Gun Silhouette (a B-sidefrom that song)

    1. Maybe a clue for a non poet :) Think and speak on metaphors :) maybe... Intense brown eyes, so lost to the point that everyone or your self that looked into them... Power is knowledge, eventually sad part was that The true depth of her eyes were as mere as a puddle. Seas of red... Strong enough to make you think twice... Every time. She was born with that blood, the more you succeed ~ Deeper and thicker the blud. Sad... But life and it could be worse.
