Oh no
Love just leaves you bruised if you wanna know
then find something to lose

The World won't turn until something breaks
who will make the first last mistake?
They say that good things come to those who wait

Into the spiral
Your world and my world
It's never final love just leaves you bruised

I went because you said you'd be there
A box of candy, smoke in your hair
When I didn't know, I didn't care
But now I know

Love just leaves you bruised

Oh no
Did love just leave you screwed?
You gotta go slow
'Cause love just leaves you bruised

Into the spiral
Your world and my world
It's never final
Love just leaves you bruised

I went because you said you'd be there
A box of candy, smoke in your hair
When I didn't know, I didn't care
And now I know

Now I know

Love just leaves you bruised

And I got the scars to prove it

I went because you said you'd be there
A box of candy, smoke in your hair
Explain it to me again and again
Like I care

Like I care

Love just leaves you bruised

The world won't turn until something breasks
who will make the first last mistake
If good things come to those who wait

Well, I can't wait

I went because you said you'd be there
A box of candy, smoke in your hair
When I didn't know, I didn't care
And now I know.
