"Bruises" as written by Caroline Elizabeth Polachek, Jonathan Patrick Wimberly and Aaron Marshall Davis....
I tried to do handstands for you
I tried to do headstands for you
Every time I fell on you yeah every time I fell
I tried to do handstands for you
But every time I fell for you
I'm permanently black and blue, permanently blue
For you

I tried to do handstands for you
I tried to do headstands for you
Every time I fell on you yeah every time I fell
I tried to do handstands for you but every time I fell for you
I'm permanently black and blue, permanently blue

For you ooh
For you ooh
So black and blue ooh
For you ooh

I grabbed some frozen strawberries so I could ice your bruising knees
But frozen things they all unfreeze and now I taste like
All those frozen strawberries I used to chill your bruising knees
Hot July ain't good to me
I'm pink and black and blue (For you)

I got bruises on my knees for you
And grass stains on my knees for you
Got holes in my new jeans for you
Got pink and black and blue

Got bruises on my knees for you
And grass stains on my knees for you
Got holes in my new jeans for you
Got pink and black and blue

For you ooh
For you ooh
So black and blue ooh
For you ooh

Do doo do do do
Do doo do do do
Do doo do do do
Do doo do do do
Do doo do do do
Do doo do do do
Do doo do do do
Do doo do do do

    General CommentI don't think there is any meaning to this song except for what is there at face value. I have a few friends who are in love and were reciting the lyrics to each other and that's when I realized the sweetness of the lyrics. Just imagine playing around for a summer day with your love and coming back bruised and tending to that person that you love. It's beautiful, and simple.
