  • You're raising hell on shore
    With the widows of love
    A new sound from the beaches
    Be quiet hear them roar
    I got no secrets I got no friends
    But I got a hold of you
    They say you're trouble I say you're fine
    I always crossed that line
    Your rose-colored socks
    Your sun-bleached hair
    You piss me off at times
    I don't really care

    You drop bombs on my head
    You cut me with cheap knives
    Make sure I never forget
    There's a riot tonight
    How a raging love
    Can end and no one wins
    I hate your delicate smile
    Like a thief in the night
    With the coming of spring
    I jump-start my trip
    A trip to behold
    A trip I should skip

    You'll go first and I'll grieve
    It's too much to conceive
    In dreams I picture this
    The USS Intrepid in the rain
    You and I holding hands
    While evil runs through your veins
    At night they come to make you feel small
    Or maybe they don't come at all
    I've seen you cry I've seen it all
    I've seen your downfall
    Was it true or did you make it all up
    I'm through I have to stop
    Then out of the blue
    Like a B52
    You drop a bomb cuckoo
    And it's over thank you Writer/s: SUNE WAGNER
