"Hit Me With Your Best Shot" as written by and David M Martijn/wessels Westerholt....
Hit me with your best shot
Give me all that you've got
Hit me till I'm down and out
And black and blue
Now for the love of God
Hit me with your best shot

It was the last thing on my mind
Well could it be, could it be,
At the wrong place, the right time
Bittersweet surrender
I let the face of concrete meet with mine

Way to kick me when I'm on the ground
Way to kick me when I'm already down
When you thought that I would turn around
I turned the other cheek

Hit me with your best shot
Give me all that you've got
Hit me till I'm down and out
And black and blue
Now for the love of God
Hit me with your best shot

You made my peaceful bubble burst
Well you don't just leave me
Destroy me first
Bittersweet surrender
I let you mark the spot

Hit me with your best shot
Give me all that you've got
Hit me till I'm down and out
And black and blue
Now for the love of God
Hit me with your best shot
Give me all that you've got
Hit me till I'm down and out
And black and blue
Now for the love of God
Hit me with your best shot

We are falling to pieces
One by one, going down
Will you pick up the pieces
Or leave them scattered on the ground
This will be your final chance
To fight for what we've got

Hit me with your best shot
Give me all that you've got
Hit me till I'm down and out
And black and blue
Now for the love of God
Hit me with your best shot
Give me all that you've got
Hit me till I'm down and out
And black and blue
Now for the love of God
Hit me with your best shot

    My InterpretationI think it's about household beatings and how cruel sometimes people are.
    The song is about a girl who is coming home from school and gets beaten by her father

    This part is about a girl who is coming home from school and gets beaten by her father.

    Hit me with your best shot
    Give me all that you've got
    Hit me til I'm down and out
    I'm black and blue
    Now for the love of God
    Hit me with your best shot


    She is at the wrong place and the right time to get mistreated and that this part here under.

    It was the last thing on my mind

    And she doesn't understand why she gets beaten or what she have done wrong.

    Well could it be, could it be,
    At the wrong place, the right time

    She can't fight back or flee, so she could only surrender.

    Bittersweet surrender
    I let the face of concrete meet with mine

    Her father has always a reason to attack.

    Way to kick me when I'm the ground
    Way to kick me when I'm already down

    And she always surrender, till he stops.(I think that's the best way for her, because if she fights back or flee it can get worse)

    When you thought I'd turn around
    I turned the other cheek


    She is often beaten that she's looking like a misshaped girl, in emotion and appearance.

    You made my peaceful bubble burst
    Well you don't just leave me

    She says her kill me, so I don't have to feel the pain anymore.

    Destroy me first
    Bittersweet surrender
    I let you mark the spot


    The family is already destroyed by the sickness of their father.

    We're falling to pieces
    One by one you're going down
    We pick up the pieces
    Or leave them scattered on the ground
    This will be your final chance
    To fight for what we've got
