you show off your scars
to prove you’ve come far
but didn’t you know
you’re bleeding inside
& it’s a bronze wound
you told me
third place wasn’t good for you
& it’s a wound & you can’t trace your way
back to who you were then
& it tears me in two
to see you race yourself through
you won the last race
& you will have no trophy today

    General Commentmaybe somebody could help me out as i am not a native speaker. i realized that there are two titles of this song, the second one is on the album back-cover and also found by the internet files: bronze wand.
    i am not sure if this means something, cause from my point of view it would change the whole song-intention. what do you think?
    and also: is it THEIR race, and moreover: did SHE won this time? and if so who is no.2 if he is 3?
    i think somewhat this could be another example of exagerrated self-proudness, cause in the end she seems not be a winner in this case either (according to the melody). she does not want to let him win but she does not want to be the winner herself. or maybe i am wrong?
