This will take some explaining but I think you will agree
There is no use pretending that there's hope for you and me

And I love her, but do you think she can see
When I tell her, it's the end for you and me
It was over, ever since you went and shot me

Like a harpoon
Like a harpoon
Like a harpoon in my heart...

Like a harpoon
Like a harpoon in my heart

Yeah

I can handle the fighting, it's the affection I can't stand
And I don't mind us talking, just don't try and touch my hand

And I love her, but do you think she can see
When I tell her, it's the end for you and me
It was over, ever since you went and shot me

Like a harpoon
Like a harpoon
Like a harpoon in my heart...

Like a harpoon
Like a harpoon in my heart

Yeah

When you left I didn't want you back
But now your gone so won't you come right back
Come right back... [ x 5 ]

And I love her, but do you think she can see
When I tell her, it's the end for you and me
It was over, ever since you went and shot me

Like a harpoon
Like a harpoon
Like a harpoon in my heart...

Like a harpoon
Like a harpoon in my heart

Why does it hurt?
Cos if it matter don't say it won't
We're the same
But is it happening again?

And I love her, but do you think she can see
When I tell her, it's the end for you and me
It was over, ever since you went and shot me

Like a harpoon
Like a harpoon
Like a harpoon in my heart...

Like a harpoon
Like a harpoon in my heart
