Is that alright?

I would say the song is about two people who love each other. But, if they act on their feelings, they will destroy each other (as in shooting each other with a gun). They are saying that it is better to give their gun/love away (it is better to not act on their feelings) than it is to destroy each other. 
"It's the wrong time 
For somebody new."
She cannot start a relationship.
"It's the wrong kind of place
To be cheating on you
It's the wrong time
She's pulling me through."
He is trying to move on. His potential partner/friend (?) is pulling him through the difficult situation.
"If you don't shoot it, how am I supposed to hold it?"
If I cannot love you, how am I supposed to deal with this love/deal with this situation? At the end of the song, they ask..
"Is that alright with you?"
They both say "no", as they are torn... 

What do you think?


  1. This is a beautiful depiction of a bitter-sweet love when the seeds of destruction are borne within us threatening to destroy the very objects of our affection. To give one's heart is to not only risk being wounded, but destroyed; and, it is to risk wounding or destroying another. This is why the commitment to love must bear with with it the responsibility of pursuing the inner work of the heart that cleanses and purifies; for without it, our love is a gun.

  3. This song haunts me ... so, I been thinking that this song is about someone who falls in love while they are still with someone else. It is hard for them because they no longer love the person they are with but feel guilt for falling for someone who is new.

  4. OR, it could be nothing to do with cheating but rather a discussion between two people in a relationship in which neither is happy and both want to be over with it ... there is an element, by the overlap of the voices, that in these type of relationships both people think and feel the same without expressing it.
