LYRICS
Hear the wind calling me to leave this place
Yet here we are standing 'round face to face
This burning sky witnessed the greatest of love
Now it waits patiently to draw from our blood
The time has come to show and prove or be one
With all you thought you knew, coming undone
Is that you reaching or you wanting to run
Stand down or show down baby let's get this done

You looking at me
Me looking at you
We could've have it all
A world of our own
I never thought we could be
Pistols at dawn

I was the emperor and you owned the son
Invincible, I can't believe what we've done
Surely we must be more than love on the run
Dancing in darkness to the sound of a drum
Can’t help but wonder what you thought I would do
Lay down and play dead boy you know that ain't true
This is me reaching and you wanting to run
Stand down or show down baby let's get this done

You looking at me
Me looking at you
We could've have it all
A world of our own
I never thought we could be
Pistols at dawn

I'd rather die tonight
If I have to
What would you ever think that
I'd take a bullet for you
I'd rather die tonight
If I have to
What would you ever think that
I'd take a bullet for you
You looking at me
Me looking at you
We could've have it all
A world of our own
I never thought we could be
Pistols at dawn

Pistols at dawn
Pistols at dawn

Powerful song. Found this when searching for the title song for the SyFy 2015 theme. So glad I did. Video is amazing. Thank you.

Ask yourself this question, obviously she isn't as "famous" as Adele or Beyoncé but is that really a bad thing? So what if she isn't that famous? She still has a cult following and music to be proud of.

There's no doubt in my mind that if Sey did become famous that you'd be unhappy with that too.

Just enjoy this please.

Why would you ever think that I'd take a bullet for you? That line touched my spirit! So many of the people we choose to love expect us to sacrifice ourselves for the good of them... You forget loving you is my choice, and that choice doesn't include destroying me in the process.

The symbolism is extremely strong from lyrics to images, and she’s underrated, it simply means we’re being fed absolute trash for music then, this is brilliant stuff, respect !
