Black and Blue


Lyrics

You seem surprised to find

that I'm human

and that I can do things wrong.

For my frailties your heart

has no room and

you go write a song.

You take glee in making me

play my faults out onstage.

You can spit your venom out

but I must hold my rage.


And I'm feeling black and blue

like I'm beaten through and through.

I'm cut and bruised.

I'm black and blue.


Would it give you any

satisfaction

if I said I can be mean?

Would you then admit in our

interactions

your hands aren't quite clean?


When you tell your stories

that recount my every sin

you always leave out the beginnings

so you can look good in the ends.


And I'm feeling black and blue

like I'm beaten through and through.

I'm cut and bruised.

I'm black and blue.


This is the point at which

I need to write a bridge

for this.

But I haven't done it yet.

It's proving hard to get.


When you find the next thing

that I'm lacking.

Please don't tell me to my face.

For my pride has taken

quite a whacking.

I can't stand up straight.


So, take my latest failure

and be sure to write it down

so you can pour it out like water on me

when I start to drown.


And I'm feeling black and blue

like I'm beaten through and through.

I'm cut and bruised.

I'm not like you.

I'm black and blue.
