I don’t want to give someone else a chance

When my heart’s at stake

I pull my own bow close

Holding it like a shield

But the bow can’t block

And I can’t dodge the blows

So I steady myself in confidence

I know it’s you standing close

You brace me for the fall

You’ll never miss a fall or shot

 

You’ve got the bull’s eye shot

To you I open my arms wide

My chest spreads as a free target

You’ve always hit my bull’s eye

Even with your hands tied

Your draw quick, and your arm strong

The follow through pulls me closer to you

You hit that spot every time

 

I don’t want to stay open for someone else

The risk of that break isn’t worth the ache

The ache that would come from leaving you behind

I wrote my soul to you, a promise to send

It’s addressed too, sealed with a kiss

Your name inside and outside

I’m all for you, through and through

The arrow pierced the seal

Making your mark part of mine

And forever holding us together

 

You’ve got the bull’s eye shot

To you I open my arms wide

My chest spreads as a free target

You’ve always hit my bull’s eye

Even with your hands tied

Your draw quick, and your arm strong

The follow through pulls me closer to you

You hit that spot every time

 

When I reveal my target

I know your aim is true, your scope steady

Even when broadened, I stay in focus

Another target may flash by

But I don’t fall when hit straight on

You stand before me soft and steady for landing

Then you pull your arrow out clean

Ready for your next shot

Another bull’s eye to show you know

Me, that we’re meant to be

 

You’ve got the bull’s eye shot

To you I open my arms wide

My chest spreads as a free target

You’ve always hit my bull’s eye

Even with your hands tied

Your draw quick, and your arm strong

The follow through pulls me closer to you

You hit that spot every time
