Uh, these are like the feel of cry
Do your revel in the lights
Cause you stole my trust, tell me why,
You're addicted to goodbye
Tell me why you front in our love?
Tell me why? Tell me why this isn't enough

[Chorus]
Maybe you were shot and killed by love
Struck down in your pride,
Maybe you were shot and killed by love
Not for the first time,
Thought I was the one who stopped the rain
But you only gunna shut me out, yeah
Maybe you were shot and killed by love
Your heart's at a... line

Uh, did you fall so deep that you drowned
Is that why you always want out
When you get too close you will bail
You're addicted to farewell
Uh, tell me why you front in our love?
Tell me why? Tell me why I'm never enough

[Chorus]
Maybe you were shot and killed by love
Struck down in your pride,
Maybe you were shot and killed by love
Not for the first time,
Thought I was the one who stopped the rain
But you only gunna shut me out, yeah
Maybe you were shot and killed by love
Your heart's at a... line

You and me were only human we get hurt sometimes,
I can only take so much before I lose my mind
Is this a waste of time

[Chorus]
Maybe you were shot and killed by love
Struck down in your pride,
Maybe you were shot and killed by love
Not for the first time,
Thought I was the one who stopped the rain
But you only gunna shut me out, yeah
Maybe you were shot and killed by love
Not for the first time
Thought I was the one who stopped the rain
But you only gunna shut me out,
Maybe you were shot and killed by love(killed by love)

    Killed by love my own meaning is if you really loved someone and they finally realised they didnt feel the same way about you. So you were killed by love as your miss them and you really want them back. Love paige xx

    They fell in love and it was so deep! So they had to end it and it felt like they died because it was so deep ...

    Killed by love, simply meaning that someone was deeply in love, that when they broke up it hurt that much they felt they had been shot, and died..
