"Shot" as written by Lauri Yloenen, Pauli Rantasalmi, Aki Hakala and Eero Heinonen....
Tonight we escape
Just you and me
We find our peace
Somewhere across the seas

Enough of the fright
Enough of the fuss
I'll be awake if he finds us
Needless to say
I'll stand in your way
I will protect you
And I...

[Chorus:]
I'll take the shot for you
I'll be the shield for you
Needless to say
I'll stand in your way
I'll take the shot for you
I'll give my life for you
I'll make it stop
I'll take the shot
For you
For you

Tonight we'll be free
I'll find us a home
Tonight we will be
Finally on our own

Enough of the hell
Enough of the pain
I won't let him touch you
I love you

Needless to say
I'll stand in your way
I will defend you
And I...

[Chorus]

Enough of the scars
Enough broken hearts
I will protect you
And I...

[Chorus]

I'll make it stop
I'll make it stop
I'll take the shot

    General Commentmy first impresion was that they have an affair or something and he is going to protect her and take the 'shot' (not like a gun), like the responsibility or something, for when they are discovered

    or now that i think about it maybe the girl doesn't love the man that is 'chasing' her or stalking and they are scaping from him so they can be forever and ever together and stuff

    :)

    General CommentI dunno why there are only 2 comments! this song is a symbol of devotion and a great will and also courage i mean he will do anything to be with her and to protect her. I think it's a very beautiful song and the composer is really talented.
