Intro
Boom (4x)

Verse 1 (Tina)
Have you ever had something
That you knew you had to say
But the message wasn't so pretty
Couldn't say it the nice way
Kinda like "You're jealous, you're selfish
You got a bad attitude
Gotta watch the way you're living
Cause it all comes back to you"

Pre-chorus (Erica)
See my grandmama told me
That I better tell the truth
Cause if I hold this information
And just let it brew,
It's gon feel like

Chorus
Boom
First comes the match
And then the smoke
And then the fire
You feel the flames
And then it grows and takes you over
It burns a while
Can't calm it down
It's like an explosion
I gotta tell it
I got, got to tell it
Like Jeremiah said it's like fire

Verse 2 (Tina)
You don't seem to have a problem
When my language is profane
But you're offended and insulted
When I say "in Jesus name"
Still I close my eyes and bow my head
And fall to my knees
Cause my conviction is much stronger
Than my need to please

Pre-chorus (Erica)
See my grandmama told me
That you better tell the truth
Cause if I hold this information
And just let it brew,
It's gon feel like

Chorus
Boom
First comes the match
And then the smoke
And then the fire
You feel the flames
And then it grows and takes you over
It burns a while
Can't calm it down
It's like an explosion
I gotta tell it
I got, got to tell it
Like Jeremiah said it's like fire

Bridge
I've been holding back too long
Just going along
But I've got something to say
Time to make a little bit more noise
Got the confidence to use my voice
Starting today
There's a hope you can't deny
There's a love that never dies
A power that you just can't hide
Too great to keep inside

Chorus
Boom
First comes the match
And then the smoke
And then the fire
You feel the flames
And then it grows and takes you over
It burns a while
Can't calm it down
It's like an explosion
I gotta tell it
I got, got to tell it
Like Jeremiah said it's like fire
