"Black and blue" in lyrics
If the neighbor yells loudly, it's because she didn't hear right
If her body is all black and blue, it's because she played in the paint
And if she disappeared one day, it's because she went on her honeymoon
There's a light in every hollow where the sun comes shining through.
It'll find you down the river when you are left black and blue.
There's a light in every hollow, like the world you never knew.
She said, “Boy, you gotta tell me what they did to you.”
I said, “You don’t wanna know the things I had to do.”
She said, “Son, you gotta tell me why you’re black and blue.”
I said I didn't want trouble, I'm the boy in the bubble,
If I were a man, I'd have no use for feelings
I'd make promises I'd never hold
I'll beat you black and blue just to keep you here
If you want to please me, you'll have to suffer
A feast of bad thoughts (I know)
You with entirely contrasting colors (Oh girl)
Just like a twisted kind of logic (Right now)
What is common sense (So what?) I've been thrown away (No more)
