"Bomb" as written by and Gavin Rossdale....
Wanted to buy you shiny red things
Thought I'd be with you until the end
How did I know that I would be there
Blow me away
See if I care
Death of a future
Goodbye to my friends
Wish I could see you all again
Family hollow
Family real
Wish you were here see how I feel
Kill a man
Kill a girl
Kill a man
Kill a girl
Jekyll in you
Brings out the wired in me
I have no defense
I'm all that you see
The night is a bomb blast
The night is on fire
Sing with me in the gasoline cho

    General CommentThis song kinda pisses me off. I love the slow parts of the song but I think when he picks it up and it gets real loud that it just ruins the song. I would have liked it so much better if it had been slow throughout. But otherwise, the lyrics are great.

    General CommentIf anyone has ever seen Tank Girl w/Lori Petty, then they know how perfectly it fits the shower scene. Anywho, I pull from this song exactly what I pull from the scene: Unattainable lust.

    General CommentThis is also a powerful song. It goes from slow, kind of chillin song to complete rage! i think hes just mad and is calm about it at first , you know, and then gets more upset as he talks about it then just explodes, also can be compared with an orgasm. a slow start, slowly gets stronger, takes forever to get there but then....explodes. good gond. Rage

    General Commentgavin said this was about a man who walked into a jewelry store strapped with explosives and blew the place to ashes. i think in this song he speaks of how the man will never know the pain the families of the victims will feel.

    General CommentCool song. My favorite lines:
    'The night is a bomb blast
    The night is on fire
    Sing with me in the gasoline choir'

    General Commentat first i thought it was about a girl he wanted but the thing that stood as a wall was that he had to choose her or her friends and family. I wasn't sure but it worked for me. so much for that

    General CommentI think this song is really creepy. What NightNeverSleeps makes sense - I thought it was about going crazy and killing people.

    General CommentThe end of this song (the last four lines) are f'n great! I get chills when I hear it. Any good song should make you feel something, anything, and the end (well all) of this song creates a huge emotional ride. It builds and builds until it blows up... 'Bomb' is a very fitting title to this song.

    Well the night sounds like its very volatile, so you take a choir and soak them in gasoline (why a choir, I dont know) and have em go out there things are probably gonna get a little explosive. Im thinking this guy likes to watch shit blow up. Kinda like me. I like lightin off firecrackers and stuff, maybe this guys just talking about how he likes to watch shit go up in flames. Cuz hes pissed at his lady.
