"Arrow Through Me" as written by and Paul Mccartney....
Ooh, baby, you couldn't have done a worse thing to me
If you'da taken an arrow and run it right through me. ooh.
Ooh baby, a bird in the hand is worth two flyin'
But when it came to love, I'd knew you'd be lyin'.
It could have been a finer thing,
Would have been a major attraction
With no other thing: offering a note of distraction.
come on, get up, get under way, bring your love.
Ooh baby, you wouldn't have found a more down hero
If you'da started at nothing and counted to ze-e-ro.

oo-oo-oo.
Ooh baby, you couldn't have done a worse thing to me
If you'da taken an arrow and run it right through me.
It could have been a finer thing
Would have been a major attraction
If no other thing than offering a no love distraction

    My InterpretationThis is an absolute killer track.
    Perhaps the lyrics are obvious but I will give my interpretation regardless.

    It's a love triangle.

    The protagonist has been developing a relationship with someone for a little while but suddenly that relationship has come to an abrupt end. This is most likely caused by another man (or women) in the picture, the 'distraction'.
    The new distraction may only be being pursued at this stage and as such the protagonist claims that it is better to keep what you have than to risk it all on some new venture.

    An arrow through can mean that he's been shot down and it hurts. Though not necessarily as drastic as heart broken, as it seems like it's still an early days relationship. This is backed up by his somewhat desperate love letter style claims of how she couldn't have met a more down to earth, honest and caring guy then he is - so, with time, it could have developed into a 'finer thing' than it had been or that she's getting into now, with someone new.
