Point Blank

Point Blank

Do you still say your prayers little darling, do you go to bed at night
Praying that tomorrow everything will be alright
But tomorrow's fall in number, 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
Right between the eyes, baby, point blank
Right between the pretty lies that they tell

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
And I was gonna be your Romeo, you were gonna be my Juliet
These days you don't wait on Romeos, 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, whoa, point blank
Like little white lies you tell to ease the pain
You're walking 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, baby, you and me
Back home in those old clubs the way we used to be
We were standing at the bar, it was hard to hear
The band was playing loud and you were shouting something 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
You just stood there and held me and you started dancing 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 I knew that it was you
You were standing 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 waiting to get blown away

Point blank, right between the eyes
Whoa, point blank, right between the pretty lies you fell
Point blank, you been shot right through the heart
Yeah, point blank, you've been twisted up till you've become just another part of it
Point blank, you're walking in the sights
Point blank, living one false move, just one false move away
They caught you in their sights
Point blank, did you forget how to love, girl, did you forget how to fight.
They must have shot you in the head
'Cause point blank, bang bang, baby you're dead
