"Black And Blue" as written by Cyrus William Bolooki, Chad Everett Gilbert, Ian R. Grushka, Stephen Lee Klein and Jordan I. Pundik....
It's time to open your eyes
And wake up to the morning
Today calls out your name
And I can never be the same
Without you
Ruining my life
That's what you seem to be the best at
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Being drowned

That's more that I can say for everyone else
I can't sleep
Cause it's only four in the morning
I think I ran out of dreams
And I can never be the same
Without you
Ruining my life
That's what you seem to be the best at
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Being drowned

That's more that I can say for everyone else
How can you say that you love me?
When the world around you is changing
How can you say that you love me?
When it's only eleven-thirty
Ruining my life
That's what you seem to be the best at

    General CommentTHis song to me is about how ppl fling the word "love around so carelessly and it can make or break a relationship. Its a powerful word and when you don't mean it it can ruin a persons life.

    General CommentHehe, I like all the time references.

    I think this song is about someone who uses the word 'love' as if it were just another meaninless word, and they need to open their eyes and realize what they've been doing to their relationship.

    General Commentone of my favorite new found glory songs.

    helps me relate when i think of the last couple years of my life where this girl would constantly build me up and break me down, and when i finally had enough and tried to stay friends with her without the mind games she just wrote me off and left me alone.
