[WENDLA]
Just too unreal, all this
Watching the words fall from my lips

[MELCHIOR]
Baiting some girl with hypotheses

[BOTH]
Haven’t you heard the word of your body?

[MELCHIOR]
Don’t feel a thing, you wish

[WENDLA]
Grasping at pearls with my fingertips

[MELCHIOR]
Holding her hand like some little tease

[BOTH]
Haven’t you heard the word of my wanting?

Oh, I’m gonna be wounded
Oh, I’m gonna be your wound
Oh, I’m gonna bruise you
Oh, you’re gonna be my bruise

Just too unreal, all this

[WENDLA]
Watching his world slip through my fist

[MELCHIOR]
Playing with her in your fantasies

[BOTH]
Haven’t you heard a word how I want you?

Oh, I’m gonna be wounded
Oh, I’m gonna be your wound
Oh, I’m gonna bruise you
Oh, you’re gonna be my bruise

    General CommentI do believe that this song may look as though it is one of pain, however, too many times we overlook how truly passionate it can be. When he referrs to himself being a bruise, and to bruise, he only means that he is going to leave an impression on her, one physical, but one emotional, and that one will be much deeper. They are only afraid of what they do not know, and have only heard what their parents tell them, therefore they can only assume that the worst will in fact be beautiful and terrible at the same time.
