Two-Tone Video Heart

I dodged a bullet and felt good about it,
The surly roundabouts
Were teeming with wet fuses,
But I would not be the useful fire
Only used to let it dry,
I would let the ringing linger for a while
Until enough was a enough
And false sparks were snuffed,
Confronted by smiling gun,
I would politely step aside.
And once in the clear I would fear nothing more.
She and I would Scream
From our own respective shorelines.
Having changed for the better,
Having changed for the fun,
We curled our fingers and straightened our thumbs,
Having sung in a way we had not in some time.
