Slow Grenade

Album: Brightest Blue (2020)
  • Help me, my God, this got messy
    Least I got the best seat
    'Cause we put on one hell of a show
    Waiting, I just keep on waiting
    For the final curtain
    'Cause I just can't let go of your love

    Ooh
    You say name like you know my dark side, ooh
    Can't beat the taste of the tears that I'll cry, ooh

    Slow grenade is blowing up my mistakes
    So why don't I, why don't I stop it?
    Still got time for me to stop it
    It's like a part of me must want it
    That's why I'm not running from it
    Can't escape this blowing up
    In my face so why can't I
    Why can't I stop it?
    Still got time for me to stop it
    It's like a part of me must love it
    That's why I'm not running from it

    Crazy, late nights in the city
    Drink until you hate me
    Then say that I should just let you go
    But hold on, why do we still hold on?
    Think that we should move on
    But we're too scared of being alone

    Ooh
    You say name like you know my dark side, ooh
    Can't beat the taste of the tears that I'll cry, ooh

    Slow grenade is blowing up my mistakes
    So why don't I, why don't I stop it?
    Still got time for me to stop it
    It's like a part of me must want it
    That's why I'm not running from it
    Can't escape this blowing up
    In my face so why can't I
    Why can't I stop it?
    Still got time for me to stop it
    It's like a part of me must love it
    That's why I'm not running from it
    (Ah-ooh, ah-ooh)
    Why can't I stop it?
    Still got time for me to stop it
    It's like a part of me must love it
    That's why I'm not running from it

    Help me, my God, this got messy
    Least I got the best seat
    'Cause we put on one hell of a show, whoa, yeah

    Oh, slow grenade is blowing up my mistakes
    So why don't I, why don't I stop it?
    Still got time for me to stop it
    It's like a part of me must want it
    That's why I'm not running from it
    Can't escape this blowing up
    In my face, so why can't I
    Why can't I stop it?
    Still got time for me to stop it
    It's like a part of me must love it
    That's why I'm not running from it
    (Ah-ooh, ah-ooh) Oh
    Why can't I stop it?
    Still got time for me to stop it
    It's like a part of me must love it
    That's why I'm not running from it Writer/s: Ari Leff, Brett Leland McLaughlin, Ellie Goulding, Joseph Bryn Kearns, Oscar Michael Gorres
