Lights are shining all round this world
You want them all but what you want is this girl
And you can stick those rules, they're just second best
They give you so much but you'll end up with less

Give you money when what you need is love
It makes you smile pretending it's all enough
See the world now, it's bruised black and blue
I want it all but all that I want is you

So give up the chance to be true
And all wind up like we knew we'd do
Bruised black and blue

Dream for tomorrow, live for today
Someone, somewhere made you throw it away
Spin to the bottom, turn to the top
Lift up your eyes as if you're nearer to God

So get your bicycle and go earn your keep
There'll be nine million cyclists here by this time next week
And see the world now, it's bruised black and blue
I want it all but all that I want is you

So give up the chance to be true
And all wind up like we knew we'd do
Bruised black and blue

Too many words are hard but true
We'll all wind up like we knew we'd do
Bruised black and blue

Bruised black and blue

Bruised black and blue
