Lauren Cimorelli – Atom Bomb lyrics

Eight days, eight nights
Spent trying to sort through the aftermath
It’s quiet, too quiet
This silence sounds like a thunderclap
And all I wanted was somebody to trust
But all you wanted was somebody to want you
In this toxic love we’re chemicals waiting to react

And then I went and set you off with goodbye
And now we’re just a mushroom cloud in the sky
And there’s no silver lining
Only just surviving
And through the smoke all I could see were your eyes
And boy, I’ve never burned so bad from the fire
And they could see the ashes falling for miles
And now there’s just no ending
Only all this wreckage
We weren’t just wrong
We were an atom bomb

What’s yours, what’s mine
Keep trying to pick up what’s left of me
Breathe slow, let go
But the smoke just keeps suffocating me
Maybe you were already on fire
And maybe when you touched me so was I
I should have known we would explode
Cause I saw the signs

And then I went and set you off with goodbye
And now we’re just a mushroom cloud in the sky
And there’s no silver lining
Only just surviving
And through the smoke all I could see were your eyes
And boy, I’ve never burned so bad from the fire
And they could see the ashes falling for miles
And now there’s just no ending
Only all this wreckage
We weren’t just wrong
We were an atom bomb

Just watching all these embers fall like rain coming down
Strange not to talk, not write, not call you when you’re not around
Your love so dangerous
Your touch like a spark on my gasoline heart

And then I went and set you off with goodbye
And now we’re just a mushroom cloud in the sky
And there’s no silver lining
Only just surviving
And through the smoke all I could see were your eyes
And boy, I’ve never burned so bad from the fire
And they could see the ashes falling for miles
And now there’s just no ending
Only all this wreckage
We weren’t just wrong
We were an atom bomb
