Bruno Mars – Grenade

 

Seorang teman pernah bilang gini, “mar, kalo mau gombalin cewek, pake lagunya Bruno Mars yang ‘Grenade’, bagus lho.” Karena penasaran lalu aku cari lagu ini. Sekalian download 1 albumnya. Akhirnya dengerin lagu ini juga. Sepintas emang terdengar gombal, karena lirik berikut mungkin:

I’d catch a grenade for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Throw my hand on a blade for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I’d jump in front of a train for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)
You know I’d do anything for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Tapi kalo didengarkan lebih seksama, sebenarnya itu bukan lagu menggombal. Cek aja di lirik berikutnya

Yes, I would die for you, baby
But you won’t do the same

atau lirik sebelumnya

Gave you all I had
And you tossed it in the trash
You tossed it in the trash, you did

Bener-bener tentang cinta yang bertepuk sebelah tangan. Kebetulan lagu ini udah ada video klipnya, lalu aku cari di youtube. Oh man, makin keliatan bertepuk sebelah tangannya. Si Bruno yang menyeret piano menuju ke rumah si cewek (mau maenin lagu buat si cewek kayaknya). Di sepanjang perjalanan banyak hambatannya. Eh, pas nyampe di depan rumah si cewek, ternyata si cewek lagi mesra-mesraan dengan pria lain. Kasian si Bruno.

Bruno’s 3rd single from his 1st album Doo-Wops & Hooligans

Such a song for an unrequited love. The music video really good. And these are the lyrics:

“Grenade”
Easy come, easy go
That’s just how you live, oh
Take, take, take it all
But you never give
Should’ve known you was trouble
From the first kiss
Had your eyes wide open
Why were they open?

[Bridge]
Gave you all I had
And you tossed it in the trash
You tossed it in the trash, you did
To give me all your love
Is all I ever asked
Cause what you don’t understand
Is

[Chorus]
I’d catch a grenade for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Throw my hand on a blade for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I’d jump in front of a train for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)
You know I’d do anything for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I would go through all this pain
Take a bullet straight through my brain
Yes, I would die for you, baby
But you won’t do the same

No, no, no, no

Black, black, black and blue
Beat me ’til I’m numb
Tell the devil I said “Hey” when you get back to where you’re from
Mad woman, bad woman
That’s just what you are
Yeah, you smile in my face then rip the brakes out my car

[Bridge]
Gave you all I had
And you tossed it in the trash
You tossed it in the trash, yes you did
To give me all your love
Is all I ever asked
Cause what you don’t understand
Is

[Chorus]
I’d catch a grenade for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Throw my hand on the blade for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I’d jump in front of a train for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)
You know I’d do anything for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I would go through all this pain
Take a bullet straight through my brain
Yes, I would die for you, baby
But you won’t do the same

If my body was on fire
You would watch me burn down in flames
You said you loved me, you’re a liar
Cause you never ever ever did, baby

But, darling, I’d still catch a grenade for you
Throw my hand on the blade for you
I’d jump in front of a train for you
You know I’d do anything for you

I would go through all this pain
Take a bullet straight through my brain
Yes I would die for you baby
But you won’t do the same

No, you won’t do the same
You wouldn’t do the same
Ooh, you’d never do the same
Oh, no no no
