lyrics

Out in the cold with her high heels pointing
Crouched in her dress in the icy cold
Aims at the wolves, her fingers rocking
On the trigger with her sites down low

Back at the house her husband wonders
where she could be, it's quarter past 4
The cries of the children, fresh from fighting
The dog is barking at the door

Oh love you've got to rest, you've got to lay down your gun

Oh love you've got to rest, you've got to lay down your gun

The news of the week has been doom and horror
Gives a strange sense of quiet as its far from home
Fed from a panic, she holds it steady
The river's frozen, but the waters warm

Oh love you've got to rest, you've got to lay down your gun

Oh love you've got to rest, you've got to lay down your gun

The geese are flying west
The dogs are eating grass
The refugees have come
There's fear in everyone
The fish are belly up
The winter's getting hot
But I know you love, your beauty is enough
