As you might imagine from a tortured love dirge featuring on the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 soundtrack, Bruno Mars‘ “It Will Rain” is more “Grenade” than “The Lazy Song.” The 25-year-old Grammy winner warns on the single, “If you ever leave me, baby, leave some morphine at the door / ’cause it would talk a whole lot of medication to realize what we used to have we don’t have it anymore.” Wait — is this a page out of Bella’s diary?
Bruno goes on, lamenting that there will be no sunshine or blue skies if his love walks out on him — which, if you think about it, sounds like the ideal situation for vampires. Hmmmm.
We can already picture Twilight fans, um, eating this song up, given its melancholy synths and strings, which are wrapped around Mars’ anguished vocal delivery. (So far “It Will Rain” is at #18 on iTunes on the morning of its first day on sale.)
