Bombs on Monday Lyrics

Pinky promise I'll still love your garden, even with no flowers even with no flowers. Doctors orders don't be broken hearted, time will still be ours time will still be ours.
I never thought that something something so tragic could ever happen...

    At first I obviously thought it was about world war 2 but then when I really listened to the lyrics I realized that the song must be about someone with cancer “waiting for the news together, an explosion any moment” meant that they were waiting for bad or good news, most likely at a hospital and the worst news could come and ruin their lives at any moment. And “you make moments last forever” meant that they probably didn’t know how long they’d have together and they made every moment count. “I’ll still love your garden, even with no flowers” meant even thought the person had cancer they’d still love them. So yeah that’s just my view on it.

    My theory is that she’s talking about cancer because of the lyrics “doctors orders, don’t be heartbroken” like chemotherapy, a doctors orders to help. “Never thought that someone thing something, so tragic would happen to our peaceful, little perfect family” they didn’t expect this to happen, “you make moments last for ever” they made amazing moments with them! “Time is still ours” they can cherish the moments while they are still there.. from my experience because someone in my family had cancer and now they’re in a better place

    It was said by Melanie Martinez herself that this about the Hiroshima bombing, and it did happen on Monday. "I'll still love your garden even with no flowers" It Can be because of the explosion and radiation, killing the flowers. "Waiting for the news" Could mean that they are waiting to see if they exploded yet. To me, maybe just me, this is the theory that makes the most sense.

    I thought it was about being infertile “even with no flowers” when a girl looses her virginity it’s also known as de flowering so maybe it means either the woman or the man is infertile

    at first I did interpret it as someone as Transgender saying “Pinky promise I’ll still love your garden (body)” “even with no flowers (specific parts of the body)” “even with no flowers.” concerning their partner, but then as i heard the song it did just remind me of any kind of innocent, peaceful family in the midst of a bombing. I was reading into the song so early on and then i finally realized.

    My interpretation is it's about rape, the "Bombs on Monday morning" (for a child under 9) is they're waiting to see if the diagnosis of DID is going to be a yes or no, that news is hard on the family, which I understand, I have a diagnosis of this, and for a child 10+ waiting to see if the child has complexed PTSD, and "I'll still love your garden even with no flowers" is a metaphor of saying "though you're not a virgin, I still love you, it wasn't your fault!"

    I personally think everyone’s are correct but I agree with WWII or the holocaust but also it could be about how someone can’t have kids because like, seeds to grow in to children and the children are flowers

    I think this song is About the bombing on cry baby’s family which led to the crying and deaths and gardens with no more flowers to her and her family. This was supposed to be on cry baby album so I think she wanted to end it with the death of someone, but cut it in order to continue on with k-12

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    Although melanie has told us that it’s about the hiroshima bombing in my opinion it could also be interpreted as a trans person speaking to their s/o or a parent about surgery and telling them their trans.

    I think the song is about her parents getting divorced or maybe just a married couple getting divorced. They dropped a “bomb” on the kids one Monday morning meaning they told them they were splitting up.

    I think that the song is about a married couple nit able to have children. "Ill still love your garden," such as themselves. "Even with no flowers" as their children "bombs are falling Monday morning" as a sign that they just got the news that they will not be able to have children

    I think when she says “ I’ll still love your garden even with no flowers,” is about a family who can’t have children.

    I think this song is based on the bombing of Pearl Harbor. The meaning of this is because the United States weren't apart of WW2 until Japan bombed the US, which was unexpected. This led to the "perfect family" being their normal selves till the bombs were dropped. Although, the bombing didn't happen on Monday, instead it happened on Sunday,7:55 a.m.

    I think it's about World war II or the Cold War, or even Pearl Harbour. When I first heard this, I thought of a family of either poor, or rich people, awaiting the news that the enemies to their country had gone, and it was early on a Monday morning, and they were killed. Or one of the family members died. But, that's just a guess

    (My theory) I think that Melanie wrote about someone dying of cancer. the “garden with no flowers” represents someone’s hair loss due to cancer, Time will still be hours, meaning that they would need to cherish the time they have together “ love will still be trying” meaning that they would love the person no matter what happens.
