Ellie Goulding – Slow Grenade lyrics
[Verse 1: Ellie Goulding]
Help me, my God, this got messy
Least I got the best seat
'Cause we put on one hell of a show
Waiting, I just keep on waiting
For the final curtain
'Cause I just can't let go of your love


[Pre-Chorus: Ellie Goulding]
You say name like you know my dark side, ooh
Can't beat the taste of the tears that I'll cry, ooh

[Chorus: Ellie Goulding]
Slow grenade is blowing up my mistakes
So why don't I, why don't I stop it?
Still got time for me to stop it
It's like a part of me must want it
That's why I'm not running from it
Can't escape this blowing up

In my face so why can't I
Why can't I stop it?
Still got time for me to stop it
It's like a part of me must love it
That's why I'm not running from it

[Verse 2: Lauv with Ellie Goulding]
Crazy, late nights in the city
Drink until you hate me
Then say that I should just let you go
But hold on, why do we still hold on?
Think that we should move on
But we're too scared of being alone, ooh (Being alone)

[Pre-Chorus: Ellie Goulding, Lauv]
You say name like you know my dark side, ooh
Can't beat the taste of the tears that I'll cry, ooh

[Chorus: Ellie Goulding & Lauv]
Slow grenade is blowing up my mistakes
So why don't I, why don't I stop it?
Still got time for me to stop it
It's like a part of me must want it
That's why I'm not running from it
Can't escape this blowing up
In my face so why can't I
Why can't I stop it?
Still got time for me to stop it
It's like a part of me must love it
That's why I'm not running from it
Ah-ooh, ah-ooh
Why can't I stop it?
Still got time for me to stop it
It's like a part of me must love it
That's why I'm not running from it

[Bridge: Ellie Goulding & Lauv]
Help me, my God, this got messy
Least I got the best seat
'Cause we put on one hell of a show, woah, yeah

[Chorus: Ellie Goulding & Lauv]
Slow grenade is blowing up my mistakes
So why don't I, why don't I stop it?
Still got time for me to stop it
It's like a part of me must want it
That's why I'm not running from
it
Can't escape this blowing up
In my face so why can't I
Why can't I stop it? (Hey)
Still got time for me to stop it (Hey)
It's like a part of me must love it
That's why I'm not running from it
Ah-ooh, ah-ooh (Oh)
Why can't I stop it?
Still got time for me to stop it
It's like a part of me must love it
That's why I'm not running from it
