[Verse 1]
(Yeaaaah)
I tried my best to stay and make it right
But I just can’t control what your heart decides
Take a moment here without a fight
Its like you closed your eyes, then shot your own damn side

[PRE]
Words get locked up, thrown away
You draw the line, then step away
Take shots when my back’s turned to the lies we say like everything’s okay

[Chorus]
Before this war is won this love is gonna be done
Like it or not I can feel my heart getting shot (yeaaah)
And as we run for cover, your trigger pulled – it’s over
Like it or not, I can feel my heart getting shot (yeaaah)
You got a man down
You got a man down

[Verse 2]
I really tried to save it for both of us
But you just killed the trust, this solider wasn’t enough (yeaaah)
You said to never never surrender (oooh)
But then you broke our forever

[PRE]
Words get locked up, thrown away
You draw the line, then step away
Take shots when my back’s turned to the lies we say like everything’s okay

[Chorus]
Before this war is won this love is gonna be done
Like it or not I can feel my heart getting shot (yeaaah)
And as we run for cover, your trigger pulled – it’s over
Like it or not, I can feel my heart getting shot (yeaaah)
You got a man down (You shot your own damn side)
You got a man down (You shot your own damn side)

I could feel like a shot gun
When the war’s won
But you never ever let up

I could feel it like a bullet
the way you said it (oh)
The way I felt you couldn’t get enough

When the smoke clears
I’ll be alone here
Nothing to save us now (to save us now)

[Speaking]
Before this war is won, this love is gonna be done

(Ooooooh)

[Chorus]
Before this war is won this love is gonna be done
Like it or not I can feel my heart getting shot
And as we run for cover, your trigger pulled – it’s over
Like it or not, I can feel my heart getting shot (yeaaah)

(Oh’s & Uh’s)
You got a man down (You shot your own damn side)
You got a man down (You shot your own damn side)

(Ohohohoh)
