About Sun of a Gun

"Sun of a Gun" is the major-label debut song recorded by Danish recording artist Oh Land. It is taken from her self-titled second studio album Oh Land (2011). It was released as the album's lead single on 4 October 2010 by Fake Diamond Records and Sony Music Entertainment. Elsewhere, the single was released on 24 April 2011 as a CD single and 7-inch single. A Europop and synth-pop song, its lyrics describe a troubled relationship by comparing its effects to the orbit of the sun. The track was written by Jimmy Harry and Nanna Øland Fabricius, with Dave McCracken solely producing it. "Sun of a Gun" received positive reviews from critics, who praised its "ready for the dancefloor" theme, in addition to it being a "standout track". In the United States, it garnered commercial success on the Dance Club Songs chart, spending a total of nine weeks on the chart. It also peaked in several European countries, including in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, and Germany. An accompanying music video premiered on 19 October 2010, displaying Oh Land in two different stages of a relationship. It was filmed in Brooklyn and directed by ThirtyTwo. Oh Land performed the song on various occasions, including on an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! in March 2011.

Once burned, twice shunned
Too much of your line made me blind.
I'd wait all night
But you left one too many times.

I want to change my orbit
Don't care what you do now.
I want to live in darkness
Don't want to be spun around.

You go down, down, down
I fall out of love with you.
Come back round, round, round
You son of a gun.

You go down, down, down.
This time I won't save you
When you drown, drown, drown
You son of a gun.
You son of a gun.

Birds sing for you,
You can make the blue sky blush
You've got them all fooled
But I am burned out on this rush.

I want to change my orbit
Don't care what you do now.
I want to live in darkness
Don't want to be spun around.

You go down, down, down
I fall out of love with you.
Come back round, round, round
You son of a gun.

You go low, low, low.
This time I won't save you
When you go, go, go
You son of a gun.
You son of a gun.

Red sky creepin'
Disappearing
Bye-bye feeling
Heart you're stealing

You go down, down, down
I fall out of love with you.
Come back round, round, round
You son of a gun.

You go down, down, down.
This time I won't save you
When you drown, drown, drown
You son of a gun.
You son of a gun.
You son of a gun.
