"Gunshot" as written by and Bjorn Yttling Lykke Li Zachrisson....
I am longing for your poison
Like a cancer for its prey
Shot an arrow, in your harbor
Where you waited in the rain
I am siren, I am ivy
I am no one, I'm nobody
I am longing for your honey
I am longing for your love

And the shot goes through my head and back
Gunshot, I can't take it back

Lay me down in your ocean
Carry me and my burden
I was dreaming about you honey
I was hoping you'd save me

And the shot goes through my head and back
Gunshot, can't take it back
My heart cracked, really loved you bad
Gunshot, I'll never get you back

And I ache, while you're not here
Feel you aching
Wide awake, why you're not here
I can feel you firing straight into my heart

Goes through my head and back
Gunshot, can't take it back
My heart cracked, really loved you bad
Gunshot, never get you back, never get you back
Never get you back, never get you back, never get you back

    General Commentthe first line is indicative of the entire song. ' longing for your your poison' longing for love that it is damaging or terminal. 'like a cancer for its prey' cancer doesn't care if it consumes the host and furthermore when the cancer consumes the host it destroys itself in this way it shows a destructive form of love that not only disregards the well being of the self but of the toher party involved, in need of their love no matter what the cost. whether it be terminal or not
