    Lyrics »

Time after time my friends warned me to stay away
But it's easier said than done
I try and try
But I'm drawn like a moth to a flame
The closer and closer you come

Once I could fly just like a bird so free
When only the sky was blue
But now I'm shackled to your memory
And I'm blue as the sky over you

I watch the night come down on lonely street
Look at all the people just like me

Chorus:
Shot down by love
Kisses like bullets in a gun
Betrayed by desire
Ready, aim, fire
Shot down by love

Night after night
I keep having the same old dream
And it's driving me out of my head
I see you and you're kissing me
But I awake in an empty bed

One more night comes down on lonely street
And I'm still running from your memory

Chorus (Repeat)

Bridge:
I never thought we'd lose it all
You break on top and it's a long, long way to crawl
Would you like to
Do you like to see me crawl

Chorus
