"Bombs on Monday Morning" is the eighth track by Melanie Martinez featured on her second studio album, Fairytale DreamsIt was originally written for her debut studio album Cry Baby but was eventually cut, presumably due to thematic differences from the rest of the album, as well as the controversial and sensitive nature of the song. It was remastered for this album in order to include DFG's voice in it.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]

Pinky promise
I'll still love your garden
Even with no flowers
Even with no flowers
Doctor's orders
Don't be brokenhearted
Time will still be ours
Time will still be ours

[Pre-Chorus]


Never thought that something
Something so tragic
Could ever happen to
Our peaceful, little perfect family
I promise
Promise to love you
You and the children
Carousel spinnin'
Our neighborhood will always be this pretty

[Chorus]


Bombs are falling
On Monday morning
Waiting for the news together
An explosion, any moment
You make moments last forever and ever
(You make moments last forever)

[Verse 2]


Eyes like hazel
Twinkle in the starlight
Even when they're crying
Even when they're crying
Constellations
Forming out of scar lines
Even when they're dying
Love will still be trying

[Pre-Chorus]


Never thought that something
Something so tragic
Could ever happen to
Our peaceful, little perfect family
I promise
Promise to love you
You and the children
Carousel spinnin'
Our neighborhood will always be this pretty

[Chorus]


Bombs are falling
On Monday morning
Waiting for the news together
An explosion, any moment
You make moments last forever and ever

[Bridge]


Bombs are falling on Monday morning
Bombs are falling, you make moments last forever

[Chorus]


Bombs are falling
On Monday morning
Waiting for the news together
An explosion, any moment
You make moments last forever and ever

[Outro]


Bombs are falling on Monday morning
Bombs are falling
You make moments last forever
You make moments last forever

Music Video

The music video is about Cry Baby's brother (Sophia's uncle) dying of cancer. It starts in front of Cry Baby's house where paper flowers start wilting. When Sophia tries to reassure her mother that they can just plant new ones, she grabs Sophia and rushes to the hospital. Then Sophia notices that all the town's flowers are wilting, and this only happens when someone is about to die. They get there and see Cry Baby's brother on his deathbed and start crying.

Trivia
