"Black and Blue" as written by and John Anderson Christina Perri....
And I've been meaning to say this to you.
My heart isn't black and blue anymore
And your words don't mean a thing
They're sung, in vain

Maybe I was wrong
I only remember feeling so alone

This isn't were I meant to lay down
But you dug this grave
Fits me perfectly

And if you're asking if I'm over love
You're a fool to believe
That you gave me some

It's been raining here like it never should
And I can't help believe it's because you're coming
If a child wants to run away, and a child wants to hide,
Don't come following your fantasy,
Cause you might be surprised she'll run right back inside

Maybe I was wrong
I only remember feeling so alone

This isn't where I meant to lay down!
But you dug this grave
Fits me perfectly

And If you're asking if I'm over love!
Your a fool to believe you're a fool to believe!
That you gave me some.

    My InterpretationI think this is someone telling an ex-partner that they have recovered from their abuse. It's an extreme story I'm conveying here, but maybe it was so bad that she nearly died ("you dug this grave - Fits me perfectly"). She felt alone in the relationship ("I only remember feeling so alone") because she felt unable to reach out to others for help as well as happiness; & they obviously weren't a team, as a couple should be. "If you asking if I’m over love, you’re a fool to believe that you gave me some" - She refuses to believe that she will never trust again or love, because she realizes what he gave her was not love. I think her correlation with the bad weather & her ex shows her fear of his inevitable return. The story of the child running & hiding - She's the child running & hiding from what she knows in heart to be wrong & what she fears, but if her ex were to coming knocking on her door again, she fears she might run back into his arms.
