The guy who put his hands on you
Has got nothing to do with me
And the bruises that you feel will heal
And I hope you come around
Cause we're missing you
You used to speak so easy
Now you're afraid to talk to me

It's like walking with the wounded
Carrying that weight way too far
The concrete pulled you down so hard
Out there with the wounded
Missing you

And I never claimed to understand
What happens after dark
But my fingers catch sparks at the thought of touching you
When you're wounded

[coughs/clears throat]
Pour it out boys

Let me break it down to revise the issue
We miss your face and you know I wish you
Would come back down to the Dalva Bar
You tell them, that's just my battle scar
I want to kiss you
And knock them down like we used to
You're the marigold
Well you're walkin' round shaking that thing all day
And then you walk on baby walk on
You walk on
On and on
You're an angel in the pit with her hands in the air
And we're missing you

Now it's fall, and your shoulders get tighter
Nervous flicks on the lighter, boots
Your pissed off poets, and your women's groups
And the friends with you, we should have known this fool
But I guess we missed the mark
Still my fingers catch the sparks at the thought of
Them touching you
When you're wounded

Let me break it down to revise the issue
You never come around, and you know we miss you
Well nobody took your pride away, you tell 'em
That's just what people say
Back down the bully to the end of the bus
Cause it's time for them to be scared of us
Till you're yelling, how we living cause you got the ball
Then you rock on baby, rock on, you rock on
You're a summer time hottie with her feet in the air
Saying I don't care, I don't care

Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Baby show up wounded, yeah yeah

    General CommentSo if I am reading this right I believe the song is about a girl that got raped and it was horrific. The later one of her male friends is trying to keep her from just sinking deeper into depression and trying to get her to sort of rejoin society. He then goes to comfort her by saying something like "Everyone hates the guy, we promise we feel as strongly as you do" with the lines

    "And I never claimed to understand
    What happens after dark
    But my fingers catch sparks at the thought of touching you
    When you're wounded"

    And then the next part is about her sort of feeling attractive again and everyone is rooting for her because as far as I know, rape victims don't feel attractive after the event. So the group of friends tells her to

    "Well you're walkin' round shaking that thing all day
    And then you walk on baby walk on
    You walk on"

    Thats my two cents. :)
