You Give Love A Bad Name Lyrics

Shot through the heart
And you're to blame
Darling, you give love a bad name

An angel's smile is what you sell
You promised me heaven
And put me through hell
Chains of love got a hold on me
When passion's a prison
You can't break free

Oh, you're a loaded gun, yeah
Oh, there's nowhere to run
No one can save me
The damage is done

Shot through the heart
And you're to blame
You give love a bad name (Bad name)
I play my part and you play your game
You give love a bad name (Bad name)
You give love a bad name

Paint your smile on your lips
Blood red nails on your fingertips
A school boy's dream, you act so shy
Your very first kiss was your first kiss goodbye

Oh, you're a loaded gun
Oh, there's nowhere to run
No one can save me
The damage is done

Shot through the heart
And you're to blame
You give love a bad name
I play my part and you play your game
You give love a bad name (Bad name)
You give love, oh

Ohh, shot through the heart
And you're to blame
You give love a bad name
I play my part and you play your game
You give love a bad name (Bad name)

Shot through the heart
And you're to blame
You give love a bad name (Bad name)
I play my part and you play your game
You give love a bad name (Bad name)

(Whoa) You give love
(Whoa) You give love (A bad name)
(Whoa) You give love
(Whoa) You give love (A bad name)
(Whoa) You give love
(Whoa) You give love (A bad name)
(Whoa) You give love
(Whoa) You give love (A bad name)

I have to sing it for choir, but... I dunno. I think it would be better if it weren't overplayed on the radio. Just my opinion. And, it's like one of those old songs EVERYONE knows. lollololololololol

I agree, it is way overplayed on radios, it is one everyone knows, it actually used to be a pretty good song... then people started loving it.. therefore i hated it XD When people start to love stuff, is just when i start to hate it (;
