All Time Low – Time Bomb lyrics

From the get go I knew this was hard to hold
Like a crash the whole thing spun out of control
Oh, on a wire, we were dancing
Two kids no consequences
Pull a trigger, without thinking
There's only one way down this road

It was like a time bomb, set in a motion
We knew that we were destined to explode
And if I had to pull you out of the wreckage
You know I'm never gonna let you go
We're like a time bomb
Gonna lose it, let's defuse it
Baby we're like a time bomb
But I need it
Wouldn't have it any other way

Well there's no way out of this
So let's stay in
Every storm that comes,
All soul comes to an end
Oh resistance is useless
Just two kids stupid and fearless
Like a bullet, shooting love sick
There's only one way down this road

It was like a time bomb, set in a motion
We knew that we were destined to explode
And if I have to pull you out of the wreckage
You know I'm never gonna let you go
We're like a time bomb
Gonna lose it, let's defuse it
Baby we're like a time bomb
But I need it
Wouldn't have it any other way

Got my heart in your hands, like a time bomb tickin'
It goes off, we start again
When it breaks, we fix it
Got your heart in my hands, like a time bomb tickin'
We should know
Better but we won't let go

It was like a time bomb, set in a motion
We knew that we were destined to explode
And if I have to pull you out of the wreckage
You know I'm never gonna let you let me go
Like a time bomb
Gonna lose it, let's defuse it
Baby we're like a time bomb
But I need it
Wouldn't have it any other way

    It's like being in love with someone, and you know that the love isn't going to last. You want, crave, need, that love, even if it means it's going to end bad for you. But every time it ends, every time it 'explodes' you find yourself crawling back for more, because you're always drawn back to how great it makes you feel. You know from the very beginning that it's not going to end well, but you don't care, because all you want is that moment when all you have is the other person. When you crave something so amazing, yet so deadly, it becomes addictive, a way of living and your only means of surviving - parker!

    Well I think the time bomb is a metaphor for his heart and for the relationship as a whole. Either you do it or you don't, like a time bomb; either it blows or it doesn't, and whatever happens you're stuck with the consequences. Here they want to live throught them. In terms of the time bomb in relation to his heart, she has the power to crush it or save it and hence him; the same way she has the option to defuse the time bomb or let it explode. And he has hers and can do the same. They can make or break each other.

    Rated 0 to me, this song is about a relationship that keeps messing up and they couple keep breaking up and getting back together but they wouldn't want it with anyone else or they can't stop doing it no matter how much it hurts.
    "It goes off; we start again when it breaks, we fix it. got your heart in my hands like a time bomb ticking. We should know better but we won't let go."
