YOU'RE THE BOMB

THEY MADE YOU UP IN SECRET

YOU'RE THE BOMB

YOU'RE MY MANHATTAN PROJECT

WITHOUT WARNING, WITHOUT A SOUND

YOU HIT THE GROUND

 

YOU'RE THE BOMB

A FLASH OF BLINDING LIGHT

AND THEN YOU'RE GONE

INTO THAT GOOD NIGHT

WE'LL LET HISTORY DECIDE

IF WE'RE RIGHT OR WRONG

 

YOU AND I SET THE TOWN ON FIRE

BRIGHTER AND HOTTER THAN THE RISING SUN

FLYING HIGH

THE CITY LIGHTS WERE SHINING RIGHT BELOW

I LET YOU GO

WHAT HAVE I DONE?

 

YOU'RE THE BOMB

YOU CAME DOWN FROM ABOVE

AND BROKE THE CALM

MY TERRIFYING LOVE

BUT YOU SEEMED WORTH FIGHTING FOR AT THE TIME

YOU WERE MY WORLD,

WAR,

CRIME
