An old sentimental night
Roll me at your sides, shot me down
No there ain't no enemy here
You keep me very near and shoot me down, shoot me down

Your hands they flutter up
[Incomprehensible] my buttercup
And shoot me down in flames

Stand back baby, stand back and let me breathe
I think I'm a fallin' outta here
I can hear the grass grow, I can hear the melting snow
I can feel your breath against my ear

I might just disappear
Yeah, wouldn't that be nice?
Yeah, wouldn't that be nice?
Well, wouldn't that be nice?

I look into your eyes
It comes as no great surprise
You're gonna shoot me down, shoot me down

I know that when you smile
It'll only be a short little while
Shoot me down in flames

Shoot me down
In flames
Shoot me down
In flames

You're gonna shoot me down
Oh, in flames
Shoot me down, shoot me down
In flames
