"Bruises" as written by Russell Marsden, Emma Richardson and Matt Hayward....
Take this life and this form
One and all
Wish that I could give you more
Gonna have to break the law

I've got more to give
Than I first thought to give
We'll have to make a pact
Or something like that

Something good
A little trouble in your neighborhood
Or understanding that you're understood
Oh I kinda wish you were

Give yourself to the world, baby girl
Spread your wings and uncurl
To the world

You've got more to give
Than you first thought to give
We'll have to make a pact
Or something like that
Or something like that

Something good
A little trouble in your neighborhood
Or understanding that you're understood
Oh I kinda wish you were

Something real
Another feeling that you never feel
Another reason that you wanna be alive
Just to watch the bruises heal

Something good
A little trouble in your neighborhood
Or understanding that you're understood
Oh I kinda wish you were

Something real
Another feeling that you never feel
Another reason that you wanna be alive
Just to watch the bruises heal

    General CommentI think the first four verses of this song is about giving (or wanting to give) more than, or what you do have (in effort?) and wanting something more from your life (understanding that you're understood) or possibly some drama instead (a little trouble in your neighborhood).

    "something real, another feeling that you never feel, another reason that you wanna be alive just to watch the bruises heal"
    -wanting to experience a feeling that you seldom or never feel; your motivation is that along the journey, you'll witness the bruises of your past heal through time/experience. Bruises can simply denote the pain that past experiences has inflicted on you, which limit you in some way.
