[ VERSE 1 ]
What are you trying to hide?
You won't let me inside.
The fear's only in your mind.
I can see it in your eyes.

[ BRIDGE ]
And I try to get through to you,
But I don't know what to do.
You're making it hard
To get to your heart.
And it seems these days,
That everybody wears
A bullet proof vest.

[ CHORUS ]
If love is a blank dart
Shot from a heart-shaped gun,
It only hurts you
When you try to turn and run.
When will you see
That you don't need
A bullet proof vest?

[ VERSE 2 ]
Please take it off for me.
I won't shoot,
I'll let you breathe
I wanna feel you feeling me.
Oh, baby, love?
Don't bleed?

[ BRIDGE ]
And I try to get through to you.
I don't know what to do.
You're making it hard
To get to your heart.
And it seems these days,
That everybody wears
A bullet proof vest.

[ CHORUS ]
If love is a blank dart,
Shot from a heart-shaped gun,
It only hurts you
When you try to turn and run.
When will you see that you don't need
A bullet proof vest?

(Repeat Chorus)
