I Took Fifty Shots That Night

I took fifty shots that night
And they rang out loud and clear
They struck me each upon the heart
As they shattered in my ear

My friends took shots as well that night
But theirs didn’t strike so deep
Mine set my heart and the world ablaze
While theirs put them to sleep

But be it not among your thoughts
That the fire did not burn
My heart was bleeding a bodily death
As I felt my life return
