Grenade

Lyrics

playEasy come, easy go
playThat's just how you live, oh
playTake, take, take it all
playBut you never give
playShould've known you was trouble
playFrom the first kiss
playHad your eyes wide open
playWhy were they open?

playGave you all I had
playAnd you tossed it in the trash
playYou tossed it in the trash, you did
playTo give me all your love is all I ever asked
play'Cause what you don't understand is...

playI'd catch a grenade for you
play(yeah, yeah, yeah)
playThrow my hand on a blade for you
play(yeah, yeah, yeah)
playI'd jump in front of a train for you
play(yeah, yeah, yeah)
playYou know I'd do anything for you
play(yeah, yeah, yeah)
playOh, I would go through all this pain
playTake a bullet straight through my brain
playYes, I would die for you, baby
playBut you won't do the same

playNo, no, no, no

playBlack, black, black and blue
playBeat me 'til I'm numb
playTell the devil I said "Hey" when
playyou get back to where you're from
playMad woman, bad woman
playThat's just what you are
playYeah, you'll smile in my face
playthen rip the brakes out my car

playGave you all I had
playAnd you tossed it in the trash
playYou tossed it in the trash, yes you did
playTo give me all your love is all I ever asked
play'Cause what you don't understand is...

playI'd catch a grenade for you
play(yeah, yeah, yeah)
playThrow my hand on a blade for you
play(yeah, yeah, yeah)
playI'd jump in front of a train for you
play(yeah, yeah, yeah)
playYou know I'd do anything for you
play(yeah, yeah, yeah)
playOh, I would go through all this pain
playTake a bullet straight through my brain
playYes, I would die for you, baby
playBut you won't do the same

playIf my body was on fire
playOh, you'd watch me burn down in flames
playYou said you loved me, you're a liar
play'Cause you never, ever, ever did, baby

playBut, darling, I'd still catch a grenade for you
play(yeah, yeah, yeah)
playThrow my hand on a blade for you
play(yeah, yeah, yeah)
playI'd jump in front of a train for you
play(yeah, yeah, yeah)
playYou know I'd do anything for you
play(yeah, yeah, yeah)
playOh, I would go through all this pain
playTake a bullet straight through my brain
playYes, I would die for you, baby
playBut you won't do the same

playNo, you won't do the same
playYou wouldn't do the same
playOh, you'd never do the same
playOh, no no no, oh

Bruno said:
It's a heartbreaking, heartbreak song, and I think everyone can relate to that. You're so in love with this woman and you don't understand, " What am I doing wrong? What am I not giving to you? I'll go as far as putting as putting a bullet in my brain for you, and why can't I get that kind of love in return?"

Lyrics in blue Chorus

vocabulary Vocabulary

numb

without feeling

  1. When Kate woke up, her arm was completely numb because she had slept on it wrong.
  2. City people often become numb to the suffering of the homeless

To toss

throw lightly

  1. he took some oranges from his pocket and began to toss them in the air

rip [sth] out

informal (remove by tearing)

  1. She ripped out my hair.

burn down

To burn down is to destroy (by fire). So if we are building love and then burning it down, it means that we sometimes do things correctly and sometimes we do things wrong, so our society is not really advancing to perfection (or at least not fast enough)
