I was feelin good, kinda high and cruisin
I was tryin to forget someone I had been losin
Then you came along, surprise, surprise
You shot me down
I was lyin crashed out on the ground
You shot me down

I was feelin fine, mellowed out and easy
I was comin back down kinda slow and lazy
Then you came along and fired the flame
You shot me down
I was lyin burned out on the ground
You shot me down, you shot me down
You shot me down

I was feelin good, kinda high and cruisin
I was tryin to forget someone I had been losin
Then you came along, surprise, surprise
You shot me down
I was lyin crashed out on the ground
You shot me down, you shot me down
You shot me down.
