Before The Bombs Lyrics

Death Cab For Cutie – Before The Bombs Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Before the bombs
Before the walls came down
We would lie in the summer sun
Watching the clouds pass one by one
Before the fires
Before the spools of barbed wire
You said you would never forget
What pierces deeper than the bayonet?

[Chorus]
There's only one thing that'll save this place
The only thing that they cannot face
There's only one thing that they cannot take
Love, love

[Verse 2]
Before the mobs
Before the inside jobs
Sleeping in on borrowed time
Too distracted for the modern crimes
Before the war
Before the troops came ashore
I held you deep in my arms
A fool to think that they could save you from harm

[Chorus]
There's only one thing that'll save this place
The only thing that they cannot face
There's only one thing that they cannot take
Love, love
There's only one thing that'll save this place
The only thing that they cannot face
There's only one thing that they cannot take
Love, love
Love, love

[Refrain]
Before the bomb

[Chorus]
There's only one thing that'll save this place
The only thing that they cannot face
There's only one thing that they cannot take
Love, love
Love, love
Love, love
Love, love
