your bruise lyrics – death cab for cutie

it’s a backwards attraction
to your forward eyes
but you’re so far-sighted
that you can’t place trust
in what or who you recognize

we sped the plymouth across
the banks of the mississippi river
mary timony was smaller
than a super ball

chitter-chatter all these secrets
started giving me the shivers
plain and simply
broken down near olympia

i think your bruise was understated
’cause you can’t feel this anymore
it’s getting bluer and you can’t keep faking
that you can’t feel this anymore

i think your bruise was understated
’cause you can’t feel this anymore
it’s getting bluer and you can’t keep faking
that you can’t feel this anymore

i think your bruise was understated
’cause you can’t feel this anymore
it’s getting bluer and you can’t keep faking
that you can’t feel this anymore
