FIRE WHEN READY
Music & Lyrics: Heather Alexander

A gun blazed! Cheek was grazed
From across the yard!
A true shot! Muzzle smokin’ hot!
I was hit by love real hard!
Stagger ‘round to see
You standing there in front of me-
I try to run away,
But I’m stunned by your love
And all I can do is say-

TAKE AIM, FIRE WHEN READY!
TAKE AIM, FIRE WHEN READY!
I AM YOURS!

Dark eyes, where a passion lies
And where free will perseveres
Unarmed, I will not be harmed
As you target all my fears-
With each one blown away,
I find it then much easier to stay-
But if I dodge and dart,
Then your tracker’s true
And the laser’s right on my heart!

Sweet pain, pleasure is my gain
When I play the target for you-
All day, I will be your prey
Until the sunlight’s through-
And with the fall of night,
I know I’ve finally got it right-
The bullet hit its mark
Our love has proved
It was worth a shot in the dark!
