    take a fall, take a shot

    Hi! What does "take a fall", "take a shot for you" ? I do not get these two words "fall" and "shot", could you make them clear? Thank you.


    I'd take another chance, take a fall
    Take a shot for you

    And I need you like a heart needs a beat
    But thatís nothing new, yeah, yeah

    I'd take another chance, take a fall Normally to take a fall means that you are accepting blame for something that someone else did, perhaps a friend.
    Take a shot for you Take a shot for you would be that you are willing to risk your life for your friend/family/loved one.
    to take a shot at something, means to try something that is unfamiliar to you.
    And I need you like a heart needs a beat
    But thatís nothing new, yeah, yeah

    Since these are lyrics to a song, it means that someone is singing about a loved one.
