she's a bombshell
down in south oakland
off east 14th its raining
six a.m. on sunday and the bums are praying
met her at a party we we're drunk now we're sober
she said its cold got a long walk home come over
she's a bombshell
I've retraced my steps a thousand times
seems I've spent hours asking all my freinds about her
been six months but ill never be the same
nobody remembers her name
she's a bombshell

    General Commentthis song makes me think about all those times you meet someone by chance and they seem like they could change your life. Unfortunately you never see them again. And then we all cry.

    General CommentThis is an awesome song, one of op ivy's few love songs, but its one of my favorite all time. I know exactly how everyone who goes through this feels, you find someone who's amazing, and they just, disappear, it teaches us not to let good opportunities go to waste.
