Alice Cooper - Love's A Loaded Gun



I think it's possible that the narrator is in love with this woman, but she doesn't feel the same way about him, or maybe she doesn't know that he loves her.


"I'm always standing in the shadows, baby I watched you give yourself away"


I think this means that the narrator knows that he is a better man than the one that she leaves with, but there's nothing he can do about it because she doesn't know about his feelings towards her.


"I tried to look the other way and fake it You push me to the limits I can't take it"


This might mean that when she is around, the narrator acts as though he doesn't have feelings for her, but inside he is going crazy. Just a thought. I'm amazed that more people don't know this song.


Lyrics


Somebody saw you at the station


You had your suitcase in your hand


You didn't give no information


You walked off with another man



I'm always standing in the shadows, baby


I watched you give yourself away


You take 'em home into your bedroom


You had another busy day



I tried to look the other way and fake it


You push me to the limits


I can't take it



One down, one to go


Just another bullet in the chamber


Sometimes love's a loaded gun


Red lights, stop and go


What you gonna do when you play with danger


Sometimes love's a loaded gun


And it shoots to kill



Someday they'll put me in a squad car


Someday they'll throw away the key


But 'til that day I'll be a mad dog


'Cause that's what you taught me to be



You looked into the eyes of men above you


I was the one who really tried to love you



One down, one to go


Just another bullet in the chamber


Sometimes love's a loaded gun


Red lights, stop and go


What you gonna do when you play with danger


Sometimes love's a loaded gun


And it shoots to kill



Pull the trigger



I tried to look the other way and fake it


You know, you push me right to the limit


I can't take it



One down, one to go


Just another bullet in the chamber


Sometimes love's a loaded gun


Red lights, stop and go


What you gonna do when you play with danger


Sometimes love's a loaded gun



One down, one to go


Just another bullet in the chamber


Sometimes love's a loaded gun


Red lights, stop and go


What you gonna do when you play with danger


Sometimes love's a loaded gun



Somebody saw you at the station
