Timebomb Lyrics

[Intro: Tom DeLonge]
Clear eyes with long nights
With soundwaves and flashing lights
With white lines, with white lies
With brainwaves and dancing lights
We are, we are not digital
No, we are, we are not digital
No, we are, we are not digital
No, we are, we are not digital

[Verse 1: Tom DeLonge]
You seem like you're having fun
And this world, it can't hurt no one
But there's wonder behind those eyes
When you seem like you're acting fine
But tonight, you're the chosen one
Letting those wildest young horses run
Letting the wind blow through broken glass
Washing ashore with no life in the raft

[Chorus: Tom DeLonge]
Hey there, little sad girl
I really wanna hold you
Your heart is like a time-bomb
And it's gonna start to kill you
But in such a very sad world
There are still things to discover
It's possible to hang on
'Cause your story isn't over

[Verse 2: Tom DeLonge]
You are an accident waiting to happen
Revenge doesn't work if we're laughing
There's danger so close to that edge
Prettiest thing left here laid on the bed

[Chorus: Tom DeLonge]
Hey there, little sad girl
I really wanna hold you
Your heart is like a time-bomb
And it's gonna start to kill you
But in such a very sad world
There are still things to discover
It's possible to hang on
'Cause your story isn't over

[Bridge: Tom DeLonge]
Don't lead me on
Don't lead me on

[Chorus: Tom DeLonge]
Hey there, little sad girl
I really wanna hold you
Your heart is like a time-bomb
And it's gonna start to kill you
But in such a very sad world
There are still things to discover
It's possible to hang on
'Cause your story isn't over
Hey there, little sad girl
I really wanna hold you
Your heart is like a time-bomb
And it's gonna start to kill you
But in such a very sad world
There are still things to discover
It's possible to hang on
'Cause your story isn't over
