A Hired Gun - Original Song

BACKGROUND

This song is named as "A Hired Gun". This was not written by me for the masses or according to any music composition rules and axioms. To be honest, I do not actually know why I wrote this song, but the words kept flowing from my mind to the notebook, unintentionally and uncontrollably.

But I think the only possible reason for writing this song is that I want the younger generations to understand the real concept behind this piece of writing. That will be the most pleasant reward for me.

INTRODUCTION

This is a song aimed to describe a story of a HITMAN. A sharp-shooter, who is a hired gun; killed a lot of people for cash, for superiority, for obedience, or even for fun. Now he regrets for what he was been through all his life, but he cannot do much about it. Because the time has now been gone and those lives too.

SONG:

I'm a hired gun ...

Was originated to kill

You can see in my eyes

That the blood has been filled.


I have slayed many lads,

Just for the cash in their bags.

As if those papers were like,

Worth more than their lives.


I killed humanity

To bring sovereignty in my life, but I forgot

Things never remain the same,

They are bound to change, but I did never care,

I never realized ....


That it wasn't just fun

cox my eyes were blind.

And everything blurred,

cox I was just a, just a, just a damn Hired Gun!

cox I was just a, just a, just a damn Hired Gun!

I'm a Hired Gun ...

And was breeded to kill.

and this regret in my heart,

has been plumbed and quilled.


The fun ride is over

My death time has begun

But I am nowhere in peace

Cox I was just a, just a, just a damn Hired Gun!

Cox I was just a, just a, just a damn Hired Gun!

OTHER SONGS AND POEMS BY ME:


A POET IS IN LOVE WITH YOU is the first poem by me and an attempt to describe the expression of a poet's love in his unique way.

THE ONE FOR YOU is an original song by me. It focuses on a person who's girlfriend/wife breaks up with him because of the charm of the glamor world. Video of the guitar cover is at the end of the article.

WE ARE NOT GOING TO APART is a song that elaborates a promise between two lovers. A soft romantic number.

@ Midianite ... Thanks, and it is the taste and preference that varies; but an encouragement to quality regardless of the taste, is something very appreciable :)

....great subject material because it's so offbeat and daring and not your typical protagonist for a pop song.

I like anything a little different and other writers who take chances and go places where only a few others will dare !!!

Agreed. Writers should also think a bit of out of the box, as they are supposed to bring creativity into their work. Otherwise, the same approach - the safe and comfort zone, doesn't help you grow. You understood the real concept and appreciated it. It's highly welcomed. Thank you :)

I think that your introduction helped make your piece a whole lot more meaningful. Even if we have not done something as atrocious as taking lives, there are things that we all come to regret. (Aren't you glad I didn't say, "Wow, great hub. you should write more?) But you are a talented writer none the less.
