Tell me when to let go, I'll swing this wrecking ball
There's trouble in the basement, I can hear it through the floor
Stay up in the attic and dare not make a sound
Any more sadness might bring this whole house down
Love takes a wrecking ball, will it take a wrecking ball tonight?
Will it take a wrecking ball to open your eyes?
Love takes a wrecking ball, will it take a wrecking ball tonight?
How can you stay hear? You'll disappear in smoke
I've given you a warning, I'm letting go the rope
Come out of the basement and let me share your load
I am your reflection, I do not see the joke
If we tear love down, we'll be swinging on forever.
Love takes a wrecking ball, takes a wrecking ball tonight
Will it take a wrecking ball to open your eyes?

    General CommentIt might just be me, but I strongly believe that this song relates to the times of Anne Frank and the Holocaust.
