We're catching bullets in our teeth
It's hard to do but they're so sweet
And if they take a couple out
We try to work things out
We're catching bullets with our
Heads and hearts and all the darkest parts of us
It's strange to find such light
In such endless night

— Tunng, Bullets


This makes me cry and cry and cry, usually. Always for a very slightly different reason - I love Sam's lyrics (I have a bias of assuming it's him who does most of them, don't know if that's true) and always find new dark/light corners in them. But the shouting into the endless night is usually it... defiantly na na na na na na, this is just how it is.

We're catching bullets with the best resources that we've got
We're happy then again we're not
We shout - through the endless doubt...

This doesn't make a great deal of sense, I know, but in a very lonely time I loved Tunng very much and was swimming in investment in their story, like a soap. (ER used to break my heart at the same time too, I think.)
I only came across Tunng very very recently but I love this song, it's just extraordinary and I keep listening to it and finding new things to notice and appreciate.

I love the rich texture of feelings and sounds in it. I know that's a weird thing to say but it sums it up best for me!
