John Mayer – Assassin [HQ]

Assassin by John Mayer from the album Battle Studies.

I work in the dead of night
When the roads are quiet
No one is around
To track my moves

Race in the end of lights
To find the gate is open
She’s waiting in the room
I just slip on through

You get in
You get done
And then you get gone
You never leave a trace or show your face
You get gone

Should have turned around
And left before the sun came up again
But the sun came up again

Enter the morning light
To find the day is burning the curtains and the wine
In a little white room
No, I’m not alone
Her head is heavy on me
She’s sleeping like a child
What could I do?

You get in
You get done
And then you get gone
You never leave a trace or show your face
You get gone

Should have turned around
And left before the sun came up again
But the sun came up again

I was a killer, was the best they’d ever seen
I’d steal your heart before you ever heard a thing
I’m an assassin and I had a job to do
Little did I know that girl was an assassin too

Suddenly I’m in over my head and I could hardly breathe
Suddenly I’m floating over her bed and I feel everything
Suddenly I know exactly what I did, but I cannot move a thing
Suddenly I know exactly what I’d done and what it’s gonna mean to me, mean to me
I’m gone

I was a killer, was the best they’d ever seen
I’d steal your heart before you ever heard a thing
I’m an assassin and I had a job to do
Little did I know that girl was an assassin too

She’s an assassin
She’s an assassin
She’s an assassin
She’s an assassin and she had a job to do

Sloan Householder says:

if anyone thinks this song is about n actual assassin ur wrong.. its about a player who meets his match he meets another female player all of a sudden he isnt the best.. as a writer this is hot u dont hear this kinda music anymore.

Tangela Strum says:

Antonio Betancourt says:

..cuéntale…

Ayyy lmao says:

Such a beautiful solo. It's only minor pentatonic blues licks but the way he uses ghost bends at 3:323:36 coupled with the tone and key of the instrumental it suddenly becomes so soulful and quite eerie. That is what music is about; it has set a scene and elicit emotion from the listener.

Santana 34 says:

Spirit wars….love is a battlefield….

Lauren Barrett says:

I really find this song interesting… it seems like he is describing his love life, and how he works in relationship; acting as an "assassin", going into a relationship, getting the job done and leaving. But with this song, there is a woman that has beaten the odds and actually stood out to him, caught him off guard and now he has fallen in love with someone that actually isnt interested in him. Now he is the one that is being hurt, and vulnerable in a relationship.
