Shoot Me Down lyrics

Most sentimental nights,
I'm in your sights,
shoot me down.
There ain't no enemy here
you keep me very near,
and shoot me down,
shoot me down.

Your hands, they flutter up,
armed and dangerous,
my buttercup,
shoot me down,
in flames.

Stand back, baby,
stand back and let me breathe,
I think I'm fallin' out of here,
I can hear the grass grow,
I can hear the melting snow
I can feel your breath against my ear.
I might just disappear,
yea, wouldn't that be nice?
yea, wouldn't that be nice?
well, wouldn't that be nice?

I look into your eyes,
it comes as no great surprise,
you're gonna shoot me down,
shoot me down...

I know that when you smile,
it will only be just a short little while,
shoot me down,
in flames.

Shoot me down,
in flames,
Shoot me down,
in flames,
you're gonna shoot me down,
oh, in flames,
shoot me down, shoot me down,
in flames,
shoot me down in flames,
shoot me down in flames,
shoot me down in flames.
