Crash! Boom! Bang!

Words & Music by Per Gessle

My Papa told me to stay out of trouble,
"When you’ve found your man, make sure he’s for real!".
I’ve learned that nothing really lasts forever.
I sleep with the scars I wear that won’t heal, they won’t heal

Cos every time I seem to fall in love, Crash! Boom! Bang!
I find the heart but then I hit the wall, Crash! Boom! Bang!
That’s the call, that’s the game and the pain stays the same

I’m walking down this empty road to nowhere,
I pass by the houses and blocks I once knew.
My Mama told me not to mess with sorrow,
But I always did, and Lord, I still do. I’m still breaking the rules.
I kick it up. I kick it down

Cos every time I seem to fall in love, Crash! Boom! Bang!
I find the heart but then I hit the wall, Crash! Boom! Bang!
That’s my real middle-name, it has always been the same.
That’s the call, that’s the game and the pain stays the same

I still feel the heat - Slowly fallin’ from the sky
And the taste of the kissing, shattered by rain
Comin’ tumblin’ from behind - And the wild holy war.
I kick it up. I kick it down

And every time I seem to fall in love, Crash! Boom! Bang!
I find the roses dying on the floor, Crash! Boom! Bang!
That’s the tall, that’s the game and the pain stays the same.
That’s my real middle-name, it has always been the same.

Oh Yea Oh Yea Oh Yea Uh-huh, been the same, been the same.
It has always been the same.
