"Lady Killer" as written by James Valentine, Adam Levine and Mickey Madden....
I had a problem, I couldn't solve it
He had this flashy diamond smile, but had no soul
I gave him love and I gave him all I had
But when I needed his love back his heart was cold

Well, he told me his love would never end
And he sold me and I bought it once again

Shot down, shot down by lady killer
I should have seen it coming from the start
Shot down, shot down by a lady killer
He took his aim and shot straight through my heart

And then it hit me, saw him for what he was
I had to cut him lose, think fast and that was that
And then I saw him, he asked me how I been
Started beggin', pleading, crying the whole routine

Fooled me, two times
The shame is all on me
It's a nice try but I'm not gonna make it three

Shot down, shot down by the lady killer
I should of seen it coming from the start
Shot down, shot down by the lady killer
He took his aim and shot straight through my heart

You had me thinking it was a fairytale
An old time movie just doesn't end as well
Struck by that arrow blinded by your smile
(By your smile, by your smile, by your smile)

Shot down, shot down by the lady killer
I should of seen it coming from the start
Shot down, shot down by the lady killer
He took his aim and shot straight through my heart

Shot down, shot down by the lady killer
I should of seen it coming from the start
Shot down, shot down by the lady killer
He took his aim and shot straight through my heart

Shot down, shot down by the lady killer
I should of seen it coming from the start
Shot down, shot down by the lady killer
He took his aim and shot straight through my heart

Shot down, shot down by the lady killer
I should of seen it coming from the start
Shot down, shot down by the lady killer
He took his aim and shot straight through my heart

Shot down, shot down by the lady killer

    General CommentThis song is absolutely amazing, I can't believe no one's commented on it yet!
    I can relate to this song so much, and it's really helped me get through a similar situation.
    I love Kreesha Turner. :D

    It's about a girl that was blinded by someone she was in love with, she obviously was head over heels in love with him. He didn't really reciprocate those feelings; and he was a bad person, hurting her several times. When she saw this and tried to end the relationship, he begged for her, promising that he wouldn't stop loving her, and ended up hurting her even more. (I'm guessing he eventually dumped her). Now the girl's heartbroken, but she's not going to let it happen to her again.

    Oh, and I can't help but think that the third line: "He had a flushydam in his mouth had no soul" is wrong. I know the last bit's right, but "flushydam in his mouth" seems really irrelevant. Does anyone know the actual lyric there?
