"Love's A Loaded Gun" as written by Victor L. Pepe, Alice Cooper and Jack Ponti....
Somebody saw you at the station
You had your suitcase in your hand
You didn't give no information
You walked off with another man
I'm always standing in the shadows, baby
I watched you give yourself away
You take them home into your bedroom
You had another busy day

I tried to look the other way and fake it
You push me to the limits
I can't take it

One down, one to go
Just another bullet in the chamber
Sometimes love's a loaded gun
Red lights, stop and go
Whatcha gonna do when you play with danger
Sometimes love's a loaded gun
And it shoots to kill

Someday they'll put me in a squad car
Someday they'll throw away the key
But 'til that day I'll be a mad dog
'Cause that's what you taught me to be

You looked into the eyes of men above you
I was the one who really tried to love you

One down, one to go
Just another bullet in the chamber
Sometimes love's a loaded gun
Red lights, stop and go
Whatcha gonna do when you play with danger
Sometimes love's a loaded gun
And it shoots to kill
Pull the trigger

I tried to look the other way and fake it
You know, you push me right to the limit
I can't take it

One down, one to go
Just another bullet in the chamber
Sometimes love's a loaded gun
Red lights, stop and go
Whatcha gonna do when you play with danger
Sometimes love's a loaded gun
And it shoots to kill

Somebody saw you at the station

    General Commenti think its like moulin rouge.... in love with a whore, and he cant take the jealousy

    "i tried to look the other way and fake it,you pushed me to the limit... i cant take it"

    "i was the one who really tried to love you"

    and reference to staying in the shadows is trying to keep away and let her be..... but also pointing out; "you had ANOTHER busy day"

    whore XD as i take it

    General CommentOnly one comment? Disgraceful.
    Isn't this about some guy seeing his partner cheat on him? "You walked off with another man"; "You take them home into your bedroom", etc.

    General CommentI think it's possible that the narrator is in love with this woman, but she doesn't feel the same way about him, or maybe she doesn't know that he loves her.

    I'm always standing in the shadows, baby
    I watched you give yourself away

    I think this means that the narrator knows that he is a better man than the one that she leaves with, but there's nothing he can do about it because she doesn't know about his feelings towards her.

    I tried to look the other way and fake it
    You push me to the limits
    I can't take it

    This might mean that when she is around, the narrator acts as though he doesn't have feelings for her, but inside he is going crazy. Just a thought. I'm amazed that more people don't know this song.

    General CommentI agree with TheDuellist. I think it is a whole secret love thing. Prehaps he sees someone do her a wrong, and it makes him furious hence the lines about him being a mad dog and squad car. Great song though, not too many people know it.

    General CommentObviously he has been with the girl for sometime now and she has hurt him over and over again and it finally drives his insanity to the point that he would murder. Thats why loves a loaded gun :)
