Black and Blue

Yesterday I knew
Someone quite like you
She tossed me out, I guess
She didn't like the things I do

Her voice was deep and black
She told me don't come back
She didn't understand
I couldn't buy the things I lack

Beat me black and blue
Make me crazy too
I keep reminding you to
Be on your guard

I guess she was afraid
The game was poorly played
She cut my heart in half
And she didn't stop to wipe the blade

I didn't really mind
It happens all the time
I guess that's what becomes
Of a little love, a little blind

Beat me black and blue
Make me crazy too
I keep reminding you to
Be on your guard

So, if you feel the need
To sit and watch me bleed
Cited from the Bible
And your own Apostle's Creed

Since you ain't so grim
You got me on a limb
I guess that what becomes
