Love Bomb

Album: Grinderman (2007)
  • C'mon

    I read the book from back to front
    It made a deep impression
    Twenty thousand pages baby
    And I hoped for some direction
    I stood before the mirror
    I stared at my reflection
    I'd almost disappeared
    And I made no impression
    I went down to my baby's house
    And I sat down on the step
    Said 2000 years of Christian history baby
    And you ain't learned to love me yet
    My baby looked me in the eye
    My nails were bitten to the quick
    She said you used to love me all night long
    But you've gotten so thin and sick

    I'm gonna send you, send you, a love bomb, a love bomb

    I'm gonna send you, send you, a love bomb, a love bomb

    I read that book from back to front
    Looking for some inspiration
    I'd been listening to the radio
    Trying to find some self expression
    I been listening to the Woman's Hour
    I been listening to Garden Question Time
    But every thing I try to grow
    I can't even grow a dandelion
    Yeah, I've been watching the MTV
    I've been watching the BBC
    And I've been searching on the Internet
    And I'm getting so thin and sick

    I'm gonna send you, send you, a love bomb, a love bomb

    I'm gonna send you, send you, a love bomb, a love bomb

    I went to my baby's house
    And I sat down on the step
    Yeah I went down to my baby's house
    And I lay down on the step
    She said what are you doing here
    I said I been trying to make some sense
    But every action that I take
    Is of absolutely no fucking consequence
    My baby said you can sit there
    She reached down with her fingers
    Her fingers went right through me
    I screamed my head off
    I was so thin and sick

    I'm gonna send you, send you, a love bomb, a love bomb

    I'm gonna send you, send you, a love bomb, a love bomb

    I'm gonna send you, send you, a love bomb, a love bomb Writer/s: Jim Sclavunos, Martyn Casey, Nicholas Cave, Warren Ellis
