Bruises

 

Verse One

The air’s feeling harsh on my skin; I’m exposed

Your love was my home and I felt safe enclosed

Now you’re gone

 

Bridge

You ripped through my soul

Like a blade across my skin

You blew out of proportion

The most innocent of sins

 

Keep watching from your window

As I battle through this life

I have a lot to show you

So go switch on all the lights

 

Chorus

I’ll show you all my bruises

‘Cause I know they will fade

Your precious brittle glory

Won’t come around again

I don’t know life without you

I’m scared but not afraid

I’ll never hide my bruises

‘Cause I know they will fade

 

Verse Two

My life was a fortress we built on our own

That’s years in the making, destroyed and disowned

Heaven knows…

Bridge

You ripped through my soul

Like a blade across my skin

You blew out of proportion

The most innocent of sins

 

Keep watching from your window

As I battle through this life

I have a lot to show you

So go switch on all the lights

 

Chorus

I’ll show you all my bruises

‘Cause I know they will fade

Your precious brittle glory

Won’t come around again

I don’t know life without you

I’m scared but not afraid

I’ll never hide my bruises

‘Cause I know they will fade

 

Climax

You love to see me wounded

You will hate it when I run

So even as I’m limping

The game’s already won

I’ll never hide my bruises

The game’s already won

 

Chorus

I’ll show you all my bruises

‘Cause I know they will fade

Your precious brittle glory

Won’t come around again

I don’t know life without you

I’m scared but not afraid

I’ll never hide my bruises

‘Cause I know they will fade

 

Ending

I’ll never hide my bruises

‘Cause I know they will fade
