My Songwriting Hall of Fame cont.

Do you still say your prayers little darlin' do you go to bed at night

Prayin' that tomorrow, everything will be alright

But tomorrow's fall in number in number one by one

You wake up and you're dying you don't even know what from

Well they shot you point blank you been shot in the back

Baby point blank you been fooled this time little girl that's a fact

Right between the eyes baby, point blank right between the pretty lies that they tell you

Little girl you fell

You grew up where young girls they grow up fast

You took what you were handed and left behind what was asked

but what they asked baby wasn't right

you didn't have to live that life,

I was gonna be your Romeo you were gonna be my Juliet

These days you don't wait on Romeos you wait on that welfare check

and on all the pretty things that you can't ever have and on all the promises

That always end up point blank, shot between the eyes

Point blank like little white lies you tell to ease the pain

You're walkin' in the sights, girl of point blank

and it's one false move and baby the lights go out

Once I dreamed we were together again baby you and me

Back home in those old clubs the way we used to be

We were standin' at the bar it was hard to hear

The band was playin' loud and you were shoutin' somethin' in my ear

You pulled my jacket off and as the drummer counted four

You grabbed my hand and pulled me out on the floor

You just stood there and held me, then you started dancin' slow

And as I pulled you tighter I swore I'd never let you go

Well I saw you last night down on the avenue

Your face was in the shadows but I knew that it was you

You were standin' in the doorway out of the rain

You didn't answer when I called out your name

You just turned, and then you looked away like just another stranger waitin' to get blown away

Point blank, right between the eyes

Point blank, right between the pretty lies you fell

Point blank, shot straight through the heart,

Yea point blank, you've been twisted up till you've become just another part of it

Point blank, you're walkin' in the sights,

Point blank, livin' one false move just one false move away

Point blank, they caught you in their sights

Point blank, did you forget how to love, girl, did you forget how to fight.

Point blank they must have shot you in the head

Cause point blank, bang bang baby you're dead.

Bruce Springsteen Point Blank
