VERSE
Dm       Bb              F
A cherry bomb, you are a mystery
Am        Bb              F
Exploded, sparkling quiet nights
Dm         Bb                  F
My teenage heart packed all my misery, baby
Am       Bb              F 
To fingertips that might ignite

Dm      Bb                F
And all along you knew my story, didn't you

VERSE
Dm     Bb                 F
Cherry bomb, your love is surgery
Am       Bb             F
Removing what you don't regard
Dm        Bb                 F
And every breath felt like a funeral, baby
Am             Bb              F
While you were packing up your car
Dm           Bb          F
And with the window down I hear your tired mouth
