Bombs & Hearts

The sound is clear
The cold night air
Betrays the pitch
The state of this
I know the sound
But can’t make out
If this is love
Or bombs above

Hearts can fall and blow us all away
Dropping like explosives from the sky
Love is not the safest place to be
Love can level everything in sight
Something much like playing with a fire
Waiting for the world to detonate
They should package all of my desire
Drop it on the public from a plane

The long descent
From where I went
Cause and effect
No accident
I’ve been falling
Hard in love
And this is what
The fallout does

Here I am
Ground zero and
I heard it coming
All along

Here I stand
This cratered land
Is just the place
Where I belong

Drop the bomb and calmly walk away
No one said that sentiments are fair
Fired from the barrel of a heart
Love could be the frontline of a war
Something much like orders to advance
Fighting for a higher sort of cause
Hearts and bombs are weaponry of chance
Hearts just have a longer way to fall

  1. This paints such an amazing picture. I would love to see it illustrated! A great piece again of course. Thank you.

  2. If I were a blanket, where would I be?
    If I were a camera, what would I see?
    Over your shoulders, close to your heart
    My lens zoomed in on you from the start

    If I were a raindrop, where would I fall?
    If I were a telephone, who would I call?
    Right on your head and I’d roll down your cheek
    Talking to you even when my battery is weak

    If I were a daydream, where would I live?
    If I were Santa Clause, what would I give?
    Deep in your head with my thumbs in your ears
    Anything to you that would take away your fears

    If I were tomorrow, what would I hold?
    If I were a story, what would be told?
    All of your hopes in the palm of my hand
    A tale of bravery and a love so bold

  3. Awesome as usual. My favorite part was “Hearts can fall and blow us all away, dropping like explosives from the sky. Love is not the safest place to be. Love can level everything in sight.” Wow, man!
