Do you still say your prayers darlin' do you go to bed at night
Prayin' that tomorrow, everything will be alright
But tommorow's fall in number, yeah, in number one by one
You wake up and you're dying, you don't even know what from

Well they shot you point blank, you been shot in the back
Baby point blank you been fooled this time little girl that's a fact
Yeah, right between the eyes, baby, point blank
Right between the pretty lies little girl you fell

You grew up where young girls they grow up fast
You took what you were handed and left behind what was asked
But what they asked baby wasn't right
You didn't have to live that life,
I was gonna be your Romeo you were gonna be my Juliet
These days you don't wait on Romeo's you wait on that welfare check
And on all the pretty things that you can't ever have
And on all the promises that always end up...

Point blank, shot between the eyes
Baby, point blank like all the little white lies you tell yourself to ease the pain
You're walkin' in the sights, girl of point blank
And it's one false move and baby the lights go out

Once I dreamed we were together again, yeah, baby you and me
Back home in those old clubs the way we used to be
We were standin' at the bar, it was hard to hear
The band was playin' loud and you were shoutin' somethin' in my ear
You pulled my jacket off and as the drummer counted four
You grabbed my hand and pulled me out on the floor
First you just stood there and then we started dancin' slow
And as I pulled you tighter I swore I'd never let you go

Well I saw you last night down on the avenue
Your face was in the shadows but it was you
You were standin' in the doorway out of the rain
You didn't answer when I called out your name
You just turned, and then you looked away
Like just another stranger waitin' to get blown away

Point blank, right between the eyes
Baby, point blank, right between the pretty lies you fell
Point blank, you been shot straight through the heart
Baby, point blank,
You've been twisted up till you've become just another part of it
Point blank, shot straight through the heart
Baby, point blank, you've been twisted up...
Baby, point blank, you been shot straight through the heart
You've been shot straight through the heart
Baby point blank walkin' in their sites
Point blank, just one false move Baby the lights go out.
