Only One Shot - Franz Robert WILD (Capo 5º) Em Asus2 I am a wolf, Dsus2 C9 Raised by crook,  Em Asus2 I'm counting on my fang to Dsus2 C9 Em Pro-tect my child, my family, Asus2 Don’t come around, Dsus2 C9 Words sometimes are weapons, Em Asus2 Guns sometimes are toys Dsus2 C9 C And bullet often, iron made  D Em It's only one shot and you're gone C D Em It's only one shot and it’s a big black hole C D Em It's only one shot and it's dark... I am a child Tangled up in confused situation Lost at love and at home With no heart where to hide I am a priest, Talkin’ in the name of God Teaching love and compassion Hiding a riffle under my robe It's only one shot and you're gone It's only one shot and it’s a big black hole It's only one shot and it's dark... Bridge G D I once heard a cry in the night A brief witness of fights Em E5 An old remake of a race with a bullet  G Everyone feel the wind, you know D But never catch it, wherever it blows C Everyone would like to feel safe C Until his last whisper… and you know Chorus and ad lib

Gone Gone Gone - Franz Robert WILD (Capo 3º) Am E E7 I lay down on my pillow in this familiar space, Dm C Am Just caught up in my dreams and my bones, Am E E7 I count my wounds among this beautiful lace, Dm C Am It’s a long night and I had, better be gone… F G Gone with the wind in the last hurricane, Am Gone, gone, gone, F G Gone with butterfly & bugs under acid rains Am F Gone, gone, gone, C F C Gone for all the wrong reasons and that’s maybe why… G Am I can’t hardly find my rest tonight Am E E7 And if stars are shining tonight in these memories Dm C Am As a part of it I’m howling at the moon, still alive, Am E E7 This vicious venom has to be called as it is Dm C Am But I’d like to know in the end, who will survive F G Gone after or before disaster, well, what’s worse Am Gone, gone, gone, F G Gone exactly from the face of the earth, Am F Gone, gone, gone, C F C Gone for all the wrong reasons, and that’s maybe why… G Am I can’t hardly find my rest tonight…
