Grenade (3:42)

Cover of Doo-Wops & Hooligans

From Doo-Wops & Hooligans and 38 other releases

According to the Grenade Songfacts, Mars is so desperate to impress his hard-to-please girl on this song, that he assures her he would catch a grenade for her, along with other assorted foolhardy acts. The original inspiration for this track came from a songwriter friend of his, Benny Blanco.

Follow-up single to massive chart-topper ‘Just The Way You Are (Amazing)’, heartbreaker ‘Grenade’ gave Bruno Mars his second consecutive UK No.1 single. It shot to the top of the charts on it’s release in January 2011.

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
