Charlotte Gainsbourg – Bombs Away lyrics
[Verse 1]
The Queen is marching back to Paris tonight
The priests are praying and preparing the rites
Another animal gets drowned in the Seine
Enemies, enemies will never be friends

[Verse 2]
The city's artifacts are thrown into bags
The safe's been blown apart, the river's been dragged
Another diver's got a case of the bends
Enemies, enemies will never be friends

[Chorus]
Bombs away
It's a pain but not a shock
Bombs away
Let that old Gomorrah rock
Bombs away
Let the fires light the road
Bombs away
The metropolis explodes

[Verse 3]
The Queen is marching back to London tonight
The new regime is hunkered down for a fight
Another animal gets drowned in the Thames
Enemies, enemies will never be friends

[Verse 4]
The city's quiet and awaiting the Blitz
A candle's lit where old Victoria sits
Babylon's burning and a dynasty ends
Enemies, enemies will never be friends

[Chorus]
Bombs away
It's a pain but not a shock
Bombs away
Let that old Gomorrah rock
Bombs away
Let the fires light the road
Bombs away
The metropolis explodes

[Bridge 1]
The Queen is marching back to Paris tonight
The priests are praying and preparing the rites
I saw reflections of this world in the Seine
I saw the Amazon, the Rhine and the Thames

[Bridge 2]
The times I tried to get away from it all
Just left me standing with my back to the wall
Another strategy regarding my heart
All these explosions are a shot in the dark

[Chorus]
Bombs away
It's a pain but not a shock
Bombs away
Let that old Gomorrah rock
Bombs away
Let the fires light the road
Bombs away
The metropolis explodes

[Chorus]
Bombs away
It's a pain but not a shock
Bombs away
Let that old Gomorrah rock
Bombs away
Let the fires light the road
Bombs away
The metropolis explodes
