"Bombs on Monday Morning", alternatively titled "Bombs on Monday", is an unreleased song by Melanie Martinez. It was originally written for her debut studio album Cry Baby, but was eventually cut, presumably due to thematic differences from the rest of the album, as well as the controversial and sensitive nature of the song.

Studio snippets of the track were leaked during the beginning of August of 2015. The song was leaked in full on January 16th, 2016.

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
