Sam Tsui - Shoot The Arrow Lyrics




You're a good shot, or so you tell me
You talk a whole lot about setting me free
Say you can fight my demons and make 'em obey, yeah
But I'll believe it when I get carried away

You want the glory
But you don't wanna take the oath
You want the story, not the growth
Facing the dragon
But you can't look him in the eye
Why you trigger shy?

You've been taking your aim
For so long, making paper planes
Say you scaled the mountains babe
The heat is on and you hesitate
Show me now in the present tense
That you got more than experience
'Cause it's make or break
And the line is narrow
Just shoot the arrow

Just shoot the arrow
Just shoot the arrow
Just shoot the arrow
It's make or break
And the line is narrow
Just shoot the arrow

We're in danger, or didn't you see
Is it just your nature, rushing in with cold feet
You think you're in a movie, such a superhero, oh
I'm calling action, but you're just holding the bow

You want the glory
But you don't wanna take the oath
You want the story, not the growth
Facing the dragon
But you can't look him in the eye
Why you trigger shy?

You've been taking your aim
For so long, making paper planes
Say you scaled the mountains babe
The heat is on and you hesitate
Show me now in the present tense
That you got more than experience
'Cause it's make or break
And the line is narrow
Just shoot the arrow

Just shoot the arrow
Just shoot the arrow
Just shoot the arrow
It's make or break
And the line is narrow
Just shoot the arrow

Your chance is coming
You wanna play the hero
But you gotta give me something
You gotta shoot the arrow

Your chance is coming
You wanna play the hero
But you gotta give me something
You gotta shoot the arrow
(Just shoot the arrow)

You've been taking your aim
For so long, making paper planes
Say you scaled the mountains babe
The heat is on and you hesitate
Show me now in the present tense
That you got more than experience
'Cause it's make or break
And the line is narrow
Just shoot the arrow

Just shoot the arrow
Just shoot the arrow
Just shoot the arrow
It's make or break
And the line is narrow
Just shoot the arrow

I would love to see this made into an official music vid!!! 😍💖❤️😍💖❤️

How can I even express how unbelievably clever your creative writing skills are to come up with a concise story line that positively worked in 90 minutes...I didn't want the song to end and already had the video in my mind....holy cow. I just have one thing to say about you both...Talent.

  11. Laura Smile

  35. J. Woo

    N for never forget!

  36. J. Woo

    AMAZING 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍🙌🙌🙌🙌😍¡!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! N

  37. Scruff Diddles

    Great job, I just wish that they had sung the final project as a duet instead of a solo by Sam.

  38. Thomas C

    I have several things to say...

    1. I love your hair!

    2. I also immediately went to dragons when I heard the word scale (might have something to do with all the Breath of the Wild I've been playing lately, lol)

    3. This video was a lot of fun to watch. It was honestly kind of exciting watching it all come together

    4. You two are super cute 😍

    5. A fun away to do this kind of video again would be to have fans suggest words to create a word bank and then to choose the words from there, either by inputting them into an online generator or writing them down and drawing them from a hat

  39. Tara Mecas

    Remember when Christina Grimmke used to make "random" videos with YouTube comments. Good times. 💚

  40. J. Woo

    You both are extremely talented!!!! And Sam your voice is amazing!!! I can't believe you wrote a song in two hours with random words, yet made them all relate and flow together.

  41. GUSTAVE RENZ

    I LOVE THE SONG WITH THERE IS MORE NOW LOL

  42. Euplayer Campionii

    great job

  43. Sheanieee the Random

    Guys, have you ever heard of this YouTuber named Malinda Kathleen Reese? Go collab with her and you won't regret it

  44. Andrew Hains

  48. ahmadd tatum

    @thesamtsui you should collaborate with dead by daylight

  49. Brooque613

    If you’re gonna’ SHOOT, then SHOOT to kill
    Cuz I won’t stick around to mend that fence
    If you take one shot, then it’s all downhill
    So don’t just try for the EXPERIENCE


    Take a picture
    It’ll last longer
    Take this problem
    It’ll make you stronger
    Take it all in
    SCALE it up to size
    Take one last look
    As I say goodbye

  50. Brooque613

    When 2019 started, I had such low expectations, but so far 2019 has birthed some great youtube content. This NEEDS to be a series. I'd also love to see you guys do this very same thing, but instead of creating a beat yourselves, use some royalty free stuff from the interwebs.
    The end result of this song is so fantastic, it begs to be finished and released as a real song.

  51. 牧犬Mildred

    That's amazing : ) loved it

  52. Michael Geppert

    1) Please make a full music video I can watch on repeat!! and 2) Please do another one of these!!

    Chaz C

  86. Lyrics Meaning

    am i the only one who was looking forward to them singing together???

  87. Sunayana Paul

    I want this song in my play list

  88. Nikita Nair

    Whoahhhhhh!!!!!! This is fire

  89. Simon Peterson

    Why does this give me mr. Kate vibes... but with music?!

  90. Jon Schulman

    First of all, the song is dope! I’m a teacher and amateur rapper, and loved how you brainstormed your ideas and rhymes! Second, what immediately came to my mind with “scale” was a music scale, like going up and down as notes do and making that into an analogy. And with “obey,” I had something like “obey your dreams” or “obey your heart” and thought of rhyming that with “start.” Again, so cool. Please do more!

  91. Roberto Andrade

    I want this song

    Roberto Andrade

    I got the song 🤗🤗

  92. Claryn Mendaros

    I love that you have a story for this song. I can't wait for the full song but this was really fun and amazing!

  93. KaiyaCorrbin

    Who else thought of video games with those first three words? xD

  94. Elena Pimonova

    Fantastic as always, Sam! It was so enjoyable to watch you and Casey having lots of fun while creating this song. That's what I like most about you - you live in the music you're making. And your songs always make a sense to me. I haven't heard a song in which you haven't put a good idea. Good lyrics express your individuality. And that is very valuable.
    Also, I gotta say, the editing is brilliant. Thank you both for the inspiration and positivity! Keep being awesome! Your talents are endless!

  95. Trade Martin

    Nice work guys...., Sam you sound good too....!!!

  96. BAISAKHI BARDHAN

    Loved it!!!💓💓💓💓💓💓.Genius!!!The way you guys made it!!!!Out of the box.
