Make believe that I could live without ya
Every treasure I went searching for was gone
Take me home ’cause I’m nothing but a heartbreak
I’m just a fool whose strength is anything but strong

I am bleeding at your backdoor tonight
I’m the lone gunfighter dying from a bullet
Take me into the light
A fairytale heart, scarred
Outlaw to play the part
Bleeding at your backdoor tonight

Make believe you can’t go on without me
Through your doorway forget the pictures that grace your wall
I know I shoulda known, but I left ya anyway
Too many stars in the sky and I had to ride them all

I am bleeding at your backdoor tonight
I’m the lone gunfighter dying from a bullet
Take me into the light
Your fairytale heart, scarred
Outlaw to play the part
Bleeding at your backdoor tonight

How many times, Lord how many times
Have I made my getaway yeah ’round your backdoor come sunrise

I could make believe it’s hard to see in your eyes
I’m neither saint nor sinner now just another lover
From a life long gone by
If you’d wish me well that would be right and kind
But maybe this dream is the only thing real that I could ever get right

Now, I’m bleeding at your backdoor tonight
I’m the lone gunfighter dying from a bullet
Take me into the light
A fairytale heart, scarred
Outlaw to play the part
Bleeding at your backdoor tonight
This gunslinger has played his part
Bleeding at your backdoor tonight
Make believe

“Just a cowboy looking to come home and hang his hat once and for all with his girl from too long ago.”
