 Lyrics:


 


 Verse 1


 


 An angel's smile is what you sell


 You promise me heaven then put me through hell


 Chains of love got a hold on me


 When passions a prison you can't break free


 


 Pre-chorus


 


 Oh, You're a loaded gun


 Oh, There's noway to run


 No one can save me


 The damage is done


 


 Chorus


 


 Shot thru 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


 You give love a bad name


 


 2 Verse


 


 You paint your smile on your lips


 Blood red nails on your fingertips


 A schoolboy's dream, you act so shy


 Your very first kiss was your first kiss goodbye
