Poison Arrow
ABC Lyrics


If I were to say to you, "can you keep a secret?"
Would you know just what to do or where to keep it?
Then I say, "I love you", foul the situation
Hey girl, I thought we were the right combination

Who broke my heart, you did, you did
Bow to the target, blame Cupid, Cupid
You think you're smart, stupid, stupid

Shoot that poison arrow to my heart
Shoot that poison arrow
Shoot that poison arrow to my heart
Shoot that poison arrow

No rhythm in cymbals, no tempo in drums
Love on arrival, she comes when she comes
Right on the target but wide of the mark
What I thought was fire was only the spark

The sweetest melody
Is an unheard refrain
So lower your sights, yeah
But raise your aim, raise your aim

Who broke my heart, you did, you did
Bow to the target, blame Cupid, Cupid
You think you're smart, stupid, stupid

Shoot that poison arrow to my heart
Shoot that poison arrow
Shoot that poison arrow to my heart
Shoot that poison arrow

I thought you loved me, but it seems you don't care

I care enough to know, I can never love you

Who broke my heart, you did, you did
Bow to the target, blame Cupid
You think you're smart, that's stupid
Right from the start when you knew we would part

Shoot that poison arrow to my heart
Shoot that poison arrow
Shoot that poison arrow to my heart, heart, heart
Shoot that poison arrow

Heart
Shoot that poison arrow
Shoot that poison arrow

You know, one of the best things about being in my 50's now is that I lived my teenage years in the 80's........Priceless and I wouldn't change them for the world🇬🇧

@sidearmsalpha Couldn't have said it better myself bud 👍

Same here. Grew up on 80s pop and rock and enjoyed the 90s just as much and even some stuff going into this century. I can't believe how much the content has changed. It's rare to see anyone in pop now making songs with meaningful lyrics or stuff that isn't aimed at getting people to grind at the clubs.

@Tracey Skinner Couldn't have said it better myself sister👍

It was the best wasn't it? Alot of it was tongue in cheek 80s posering but that was it. We never took anything seriously. We had SO much fun... wasn't life easier then?!!
