Do you still say your prayers little darlin' Do you go to bed at night Prayin' 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, 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 Point blank like little white lies you tell 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 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 You just stood there and held me, then you 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 I knew that 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 Point blank, right between the pretty lies you fell Point blank, shot right through the heart
Yea point blank, you've been twisted up till you've become just another part of it Point blank, you're walkin' in the sights Point blank, livin' one false move just one false move away Point blank, they caught you in their sights Point blank, did you forget how to love, Girl, did you forget how to fight. Point blank they must have shot you in the head 'Cause point blank Bang bang baby you're dead.
