Detonator

from by Alicia Eris

/

about

A glitzy throwback track, complete with steady piano chords, and an unpredictable drum beat. It combines the modern flair for nostalgia provided by Mark Ronson for the late Amy Winehouse, with a flair for danger and rebellion provided by producer Dane Diamond. A perfect reference track for anyone new to the world of Alicia Eris.

lyrics

I've never had this problem before
It's like I feel I can always do better
or maybe now I truly care
I wanna make you something more than floored
I guess it's cuz I'm a go getter
or maybe cuz you're standin right there

Even for all the money in the world
or whatever it is people want
I'd still rather be with you
Oh Oh Oh
We didn't know this way it would unfurl
it's like inside of my heart there was a bomb
it went off when I first met you
I could take the stars, the sun, the moon in the sky
it would not compare
to the spark that you are
hey boy
you're my detonator
Even if you think I'm carrying on
watch darlin' I'ma prove you wrong
i know its hard but you gotta stay strong
I might be your detonator

These words
these thoughts
there just not good enough
I'm so messed up
from your soft touch
Countdown to the end of times
that I've always known
Stop drop cover then roll
it's my time to go

You dismember me
I don't know which way is up
your light is blinding
still I don't give a flyin @#!%
I've learned to love the bomb
I won't fight it anymore
you set me off
ring the alarm
I'm ready for war
