Imagine Dragons - Shots

[Intro]
I'm sorry for everything
Oh, everything I've done

[Verse 1]
Am I out of touch? Am I out of my place?
When I keep sayin' that I'm lookin' for an empty space
Oh I'm wishin' you're here, but I'm wishin' you're gone

I can't have you and I'm only gonna do you wrong
Oh, I'm gonna mess this up, oh, this is just my luck
Over and over and over again

[Chorus]
I'm sorry for everything, no, everything I've done
From the second that I was born it seems I had a loaded gun
And then I shot, shot, shot a hole through everything I loved
Oh I shot, shot, shot a hole through every single thing that I loved

[Verse 2]
Am I out of luck? Am I waiting to break?
When I keep sayin' that I'm lookin' for a way to escape
Oh I'm wishin' I had what I'm takin' for granted

I can't have you and I'm only gonna do you wrong
Oh, I'm gonna mess this up, oh, this is just my luck
Over and over and over again

[Chorus]
I'm sorry for everything, no, everything I've done
From the second that I was born it seems I had a loaded gun
And then I shot, shot, shot a hole through everything I loved
Oh I shot, shot, shot a hole through every single thing that I loved

[Bridge]
In the mean time, we let it go
At the road sign we used to know
We can let this drift away
Oh we let this drift away
At the bay side, we used to shore
In the moonlight, we let it go
We can let this drift away
Oh we let this drift away
Cause you've always got to change your mind
Cause you've always got to change your mind
Oh love, can you hear me?
Oh let it drift away

[Chorus]
I'm sorry for everything, no, everything I've done
From the second that I was born it seems I had a loaded gun
And then I shot, shot, shot a hole through everything I loved
Oh I shot, shot, shot a hole through every single thing that I loved

[Bridge]
In the mean time, we let it go
At the road sign we used to know
We can let this drift away
Oh we let this drift away
At the bay side, we used to shore
In the moonlight, we let it go
We can let this drift away
Oh we let this drift away
Cause you've always got to change your mind
Cause you've always got to change your mind
Oh love, can you hear me?
Oh let it drift away

“Shots” is the bombastic opening track on Alternative rock band Imagine Dragons‘ largely-anticipated second studio album, Smoke + Mirrors, a follow-up to the stratospheric success of the band’s debut album, 2012’s Night Visions. A self-loathing, yet upbeat track, “Shots” sets a morbid, yet unusually cheerful tone for the rest of the album. The track sees light electronics, combined with the band’s trademark soulful sound with rather sad lyrics which talk of the singer’s evaluation of himself as one who is incompatible and destructive.
