Paintings they fall off the walls
When you come traipsing in with your horse
Your six string guitar is a mess
Silver bullets hanging off your dress

Now I remember what I meant to be
To replace your history
Who let that girl into this room?
So innocent, yet doomed

Who shot the poison arrow?
Who shot the poison arrow?
Who shot the poison arrow?
Who shot the poison arrow?

Oh, oh, here she comes
Yeah, she's playing hard to get
Oh, there she goes
A promise you can never forget

Mirrors they black out and freeze
When you pull me in too deep
Every time I handcuff you
I know I come closer to the truth

Now I remember what I meant to say
To count all my blessings today
Who let that girl into this room?
So innocent, yet doomed

Who shot the poison arrow?
Who shot the poison arrow?
Who shot the poison arrow?
Who shot the poison arrow?

Oh, oh, here she comes
Yeah, she's playing hard to get
Oh, there she goes
A promise you can never forget
