Bruno Mars – Grenade lyrics
Easy come, Easy go
That's just how you live oh

Take, take, take it all
But ya never give

Should'a known

You was trouble
From the first kiss
Had your eyes wide open,
Why were they open
?
Gave you all I had
And you tossed it in the trash,
You tossed it in the trash you did
To give me
all your love
Is all I ever asked
'Cause what you
don't understand is
I'd catch a grenade for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Throw my hand on a blade for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah )
I'd jump in front of a train for ya(yeah, yeah, yeah )
You know I'd do anything for ya(yeah, yeah, yeah) Oh, oh,
I would go through all this pain,
Take a bullet straight through my brain,
Yes, I would die for you baby
But you won't do the same
No, no, no, no

Black
, black, black and blue
Beat me till I'm numb
Tell the devil I said "hey"
When you get back to where you're from

Mad woman, bad woman,
That's just what you are, yeah,
You'll smile in my face then
Rip the brakes out my car

Gave you all
I had
And you tossed it in the trash
You tossed it in the trash, yes you did
To give me all your love
Is all I ever asked
Cause what you don't understand is
I'd catch a grenade for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Throw my head on a blade for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I'd jump in front of a train for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
You know I'd do anything for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah) Oh, oh
I would go through all this pain,
Take a bullet straight through my brain,
Yes, I would
die for you baby
But you won't do the same

If my body was on fire, ooh
You'd watch me burn down in flames
You said you loved me you're a liar
Cause you never, ever, ever did baby...

But darlin' I'll still catch a grenade for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Throw my head on a blade for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I'd jump in front of a train for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
You know I'd do anything for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah) Oh, oh
I would go through all this pain,
Take a bullet straight through my brain,
Yes, I would die for you baby
But you won't do the same.

No, you won't do the same,
You wouldn't do the same,
Ooh, you'll never do the same,
No, no, no, no

    I'm experiencing the same situation.
    It's very hurting when you love a girl the most and she never had the same feeling in her heart.
    Her mouth may say that she loves him, but her activities never exhibits the love on him.
    She may have found a guy better than him. Or she may be a freak on s**. Or she may have used him for a small purpose.
    But, whatever be, he loves her a lot and she means to him more than anything in this world.

    My meaning of grenade is. Well I think this song means something special, no just "oh yeah i loved you and you didn't love me back" this could mean when someone loves someone that person would do everything for the other person, in this case catch a grenade, or die for that person, but I mean. You would do everything for that person, and when you see the other person wouldn't do it you think "oh i should know it"

    This song really draws ma heart and mind to an experience a had with my very first true love. I cud catch a grenade for her, throw ma head on a blade for her, jump in front of a train and even take a bullet straight through ma brain just for her but sadly and hardly did I know dat she won't do the same. Poor me. For me Bruno Mars is the best lyricist and Grenade is undoubtedly a master piece also not forgetting his other songs like count on me, liqour store.

    Well me and my friend began singing this at a young age and we thought it was the most beautiful thing about a carrot who falls in love with a courgette but they cannot be together because their onion uncles would disapprove as she has been on a waitrose advert. They think she is much to demanding for their courgette nephew so sing about it, but, then the carrot gets pregnant with a tomato and they say you mixed the fruit with vegetable. We do not believe in this so we sing about it, and yes me and my friend were the creators of this lovely tune. I also like pie.

    It is a fun song I never got it outta my head for at least 2 days! And to me, it means that Bruno is in love with a girl named Who-knows-what-but-I-don't-think-its-Grenade who really hates Bruno, but he is so in love with her that he can't go away from her, and he will do anything, even "Take a bullet straight through his brain. Yes he would die for his baby, but she won't do the same."

    I do not know much about Bruno Mars, but his Mastery of imagtry though sound is excelent.
    Piano is his career
    rope is ability to hold on to it.
    Every man would give his life for the one that he loves. Male or Female. Soldiers do it all of the time.
    Humans are strange creatures. We tend to run to pain, if it will help someone else.
    When He saw her kissing another man, That was Cyrano de Bergerac
    Balcony seen was Romeo and Juliet
    I am surprised that he knows so much about the classics. I say bravo
    He has studied.

    I think this song really sums up a lot of high school crushes or relationships were one person loves him/her more than the other could ever imagine. For me the song describes a boy who would do anything for the girl but she doesn't care in the slightest and a lot of people probably fine themselves in a situation just like the one described in this song.
