One of them's off her foot
And both of them are off down the boozer
To the one that he hates most
Well if there are no winners
As he watches her complete a lap of honor
And he thinks of all the things
Revenge will bring cold comfort in this darkest hour
And he stands and he screams
I've fallen in love with a little time bomb
He's punching at the walls with his bare and bloody hands
But at home he sits alone and he cries like a baby
As he fights this loneliness that you call freedom
I've fallen in love with a little time bomb
