Shot through the heart
And you're to blame
Darling, you give love a bad name

An angel's smile is what you sell
You promise me heaven
And put me through hell
Chains of love got a hold on me
When passion's a prison
You can't break free

Whoa, you're a loaded gun
Whoa, there's nowhere to run
No one can save me
The damage is done

Shot through the heart
And you're to blame
Darling, you give love a bad name
I played my part
You played your game
Darling, you give love a bad name
Yeah, you give love a bad name

Paint your smile on your lips
Blood red nails on your fingertips
A school girl's dream
You act so shy
Your very first kiss
Was your first kiss goodbye

Whoa, you're a loaded gun
Whoa, there's nowhere to run
No one can save me
The damage is done

Shot through the heart
And you're to blame
Darling, you give love a bad name
I played my part
You played your game
Darling, you give love a bad name
Yeah, you give love a bad name

Whoa, shot through the heart
And you're to blame
Darling, you give love a bad name
I played my part
You played your game
Darling, you give love a bad name

Shot through the heart
And you're to blame
Darling, you give love a bad name
I played my part
You played your game
Darling, you give love a bad name
Yeah, you give love
Yeah, you give love a bad name
