Dear Shooter Lyrics

Written By: kip "kidd" russell


Dear shooter
I wrote u this letter
The other night
Hope you read it
B4 you end my life
Dear shooter
Dear shooter
Dear shooter
Dear shooter
I got to get this off my chest
Before your bullet
End my breath
Dear shooter
Dear shooter
Dear shooter
Dear shooter

Vs. 1 (The cross fire victim)
Dear shooter
What’s up my name is Kevin and I’m eleven
I lived up the block from you
Heard you had it rough growing up
Your mom was a prostitute?
I know that had to be tough
I give you props my dude
Me, I lost my daddy when I was 3
My mom says that he loved me much
But I miss him when I go to sleep
See shooter I saw you on the corner
With them things
I was playing by the swings
Cowboys and Indians
Thought it was time to come in
Cuz I heard my momma yelling
Then felt this funny filling in my stomach
You looked at me
Then started running
I fell to the ground
Started numbing
Called for my daddy
But I knew he wasn’t coming
If you needed money
I could a gave you my allowance
I was saving to go to college
Now i'm under flowers
And moms crying showers forever
And it’s too late to write a letter

Dear shooter
I wrote u this letter
The other night
Hope you read it
B4 you end my life
Dear shooter
Dear shooter
Dear shooter
Dear shooter
I got to get this off my chest
Before your bullet
Ends my breath
Dear shooter
Dear shooter
Dear shooter
Dear shooter

Vs. 2 (the school shooting victim)
Dear shooter
As you sit and clean your berretta
I hope you read this letter
Cuz I know you've been fed up
And it’s hard for U to get up
And face the faces
That makes you face your laces
In the hallways
Building hate like cases
See they told me
Sticks and stones can break my bones
But words can never hurt me
I guess it aint true
Cuz words cut like glass
Make you wanna blast
Those point and laugh
But let’s do the math
There’s another path shooter
Let’s relax shooter
And remember when light goes black
Just to laugh shooter
See high school it aint like real life
We’re all just idiots to we learn
Till we learn to get it right
As I scribble with this ball point pen
Knowing my life gonna end
By a trigger pulled by your hand (pause)
I ask you as a man
Reconsider
If you can’t talk to me shooter
Maybe you could write a letter.....
Dear shooter

Dear shooter
I wrote u this letter
The other night
Hope you read it
B4 you end my life
Dear shooter
Dear shooter
Dear shooter
Dear shooter
I got to get this off my chest
Before your bullet
End my breath
Dear shooter
Dear shooter
Dear shooter
Dear shooter

Vs. 3 (The soldiers)
Dear shooter
This is a bad day for you and I
Fighting in this war and I don’t know why
It’s my duty
It’s either you or me
And I believe in heaven but don’t wanna be
The first to be see it
I kiss my dogg chains
I think about my wife
Hoping that if I take your life
It will be for the right
See shooter i’m 23
Looking threw the scope of my gun
You look younger than me
See my wife
She just had my daughter we caller Renee
I’m sorry shooter things had to be this way
Got the call on the radio to engage
They green lit the raid
And you’re the first in my way
Probably won’t be the last
So many bullets to blast
Truth is I joined the for the cash
And protect my flag
I believe no matter what religion
We could co-exist
I think that’s what
God would really wish
But dear shooter

Dear shooter
I wrote u this letter
The other night
Hope you read it
B4 you end my life
Dear shooter
Dear shooter
Dear shooter
Dear shooter
I got to get this off my chest
Before your bullet
End my breath
Dear shooter
Dear shooter
Dear shooter
Dear shooter
