  1. Crash! Boom!

From the recording Sparrows

Story
Crash!Boom! began as a writing exercise. I was feeling a little stuck, creatively, so I played with words, word-tenses, and bringing key words from one verse into the next to push the creative flow along. It took me many weeks to learn how to play the guitar hook I heard in my head - I'd only been playing for a few months when I wrote this song. In fact, I enlisted guitar genius, Bobby Koelble, of Junkie Rush, to record the album's guitar track for me because I just couldn't cut it in studio.
I didn't know it at the time, but Crash!Boom! was an honest reflection of how I felt about my relationship at the time. In hindsight, I see with almost embarrassing clarity, how naive I was. But I still maintain that it's better to love than to have never loved at all. Besides, a great song came of it.

Lyrics

Crash! Boom!
(c) 2003, Serina Jung


what falls? a bomb falls
like I fell for you - crash! boom!
it always feels like love 'till it falls apart
the bits and pieces, they can fall hard
 
what sways? a tree sways
before it falls, or snaps to give way
like me for you, 'cuz you love me
like a pendulum, like a trapeze
 
on the one hand, I could ball myself up like tissue
and snuggle into a cup
on the top shelf of a cabinet, way up in an attic
to live out my days in my loveless cocoon
on the other hand, there's you
 
crash! boom!
crash!boom!
 
what gives? my heart gives
it gives so much it's caving in
but I can't help myself, it's a shameless ride
and I've lost my hat, but I'm the giving kind
 
crash! boom! ... crash! boom!
crash! boom! ... crash! boom!
 
what breaks? my heart breaks
like broken silence, it can't be fixed
I'm broken now, I've broken down
I'm breaking up, baby, crash! boom!
 
crash! boom! ... crash! boom!
crash! boom! ... crash! boom!
