Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Pinky promise
I'll still love your garden
Even with no flowers
Even with no flowers
Doctor's orders
Don't be brokenhearted
Time will still be ours
Time will still be ours

[Pre-Chorus]
Never thought that something
Something so tragic
Could ever happen to
Our peaceful, little perfect family
I promise
Promise to love you
You and the children
Carousel spinnin'
Our neighborhood will always be this pretty

[Chorus]
Bombs are falling
On Monday morning
Waiting for the news together
An explosion, any moment
You make moments last forever and ever
(You make moments last forever)

[Verse 2]
Eyes like hazel
Twinkle in the starlight
Even when they're crying
Even when they're crying
Constellations
Forming out of scar lines
Even when they're dying
Love will still be trying

[Pre-Chorus]
Never thought that something
Something so tragic
Could ever happen to
Our peaceful, little perfect family
I promise
Promise to love you
You and the children
Carousel spinnin'
Our neighborhood will always be this pretty

[Chorus]
Bombs are falling
On Monday morning
Waiting for the news together
An explosion, any moment
You make moments last forever and ever

[Bridge]
Bombs are falling on Monday morning
Bombs are falling, you make moments last forever

[Chorus]
Bombs are falling
On Monday morning
Waiting for the news together
An explosion, any moment
You make moments last forever and ever

[Outro]
Bombs are falling on Monday morning
Bombs are falling
You make moments last forever
You make moments last forever
