"Heart Shaped Bruise" as written by and Elvis Costello....
Tell me now
Or are you teasing?
I felt the cold hard facts of life
Five degrees from freezing
Does it amuse you to always
Hurt me so?
It try my best it's not enough
Should I give up and let you?

What more is there to take from me?
There's nothing else to give you, dear
There's nothing more that I can lose
Except this heart shaped bruise

It will fade
From purple to violet
It will fade
Just as the day dissolves into twilight

Tell me now
Or am I only dreaming?
You said that you'd be mine for life
And now you say you're leaving
If I could hold you once more
Before you go
When I approach you just lash out
Should I give up and let you?

What more is there to take from me?
There's nothing left give you, dear
There's nothing else that I can lose
Except this heart shaped bruise

It will fade from purple to violet
It will fade...
She's pulling out the pin

    General Commenthow has no one commented on this? An AMAZING song by Costello! All about feeling hopeless and lost in love. An deeply haunting song. Love it <3
