Bruises
Chairlift Lyrics


I tried to do handstands for you
I tried to do headstands for you
Every time I fell on you yeah every time I fell
I tried to do handstands for you
But every time I fell for you
I'm permanently black and blue, permanently blue
For you

I tried to do handstands for you
I tried to do headstands for you
Every time I fell on you yeah every time I fell
I tried to do handstands for you but every time I fell for you
I'm permanently black and blue, permanently blue

For you ooh
For you ooh
So black and blue ooh
For you ooh

I grabbed some frozen strawberries so I could ice your bruising knees
But frozen things they all unfreeze and now I taste like
All those frozen strawberries I used to chill your bruising knees
Hot July ain't good to me
I'm pink and black and blue (For you)

I got bruises on my knees for you
And grass stains on my knees for you
Got holes in my new jeans for you
Got pink and black and blue

Got bruises on my knees for you
And grass stains on my knees for you
Got holes in my new jeans for you
Got pink and black and blue

For you ooh
For you ooh
So black and blue ooh
For you ooh

Do doo do do do
Do doo do do do
Do doo do do do
Do doo do do do
Do doo do do do
Do doo do do do
Do doo do do do
Do doo do do do

Been listening to this since i was 10 years old. I am 20 now and this song is still so underrated.. 🧡

Sir Switch Crookington

I first heard this banger in 2009 as a little kid from the iPod ad. Time flies

Neminem2

Exact same way.

Michael Chacon

Remembering those times when I was a freshman in high school waking up and turning on Mtv hearing this, then showing my girlfriend the song. Crazy how times flies so fast. I remember it like it was yesterday.

2008,2009 and 2010 had something completely special, something that remained there and then... Now everything is sorta bland..
