Then She Threw Me Like a Hand Grenade

All we wanted was one way out
All we talked of was the great escape
Feeling homeless since we went south
Then she threw my like a hand grenade

Alright
ok
What did you want babe?
What did you say?
Skin on skin
No stones
You might feel lonely but you're not alone
You might feel lonely but you're not alone

Three fires lit a spark in me
It took me years to understand the weight
If you're a prisoner to anything you're not free
Then she threw me like a hand grenade

Ok
Alright
What did you want babe?
Don't lie
Skin on skin
No stones
You might feel lonely but you're not alone
You might feel lonely but you're not alone

All this rain
Fills my head
Are we alive,
Or are we dead?
I only wanted it
Just like you said
That night
Last fall
In my arms
In our bed
In our bed

Alright
ok
What did you want babe?
What did you say?
Skin on skin
No stones
You might feel lonely but you're not alone
You might feel lonely but you're not alone
