Enola Gay Lyrics

Enola Gay - You should have stayed at home yesterday
Ah-ha, words can't describe - The feeling and the way you lied
These games you play - They're going to end in more than tears some day
Ah-ha Enola Gay - It shouldn't ever have to end this way

It's 8:15 - And that's the time that it's always been
We got your message on the radio - Conditions normal, and you're coming home

Enola Gay - Is mother proud of little boy today?
Ah-ha this kiss you give - It's never ever gonna to fade away

Enola Gay - You shouldn't ever have to live this way
Ah-ha Enola Gay - You should've faded our dreams away
It's 8:15 - And that's the time that it's always been
We got your message on the radio - Conditions normal, and you're coming home

Enola Gay - Is mother proud of little boy today?
Ah-ha this kiss you give - It's never ever going to fade away
