Black And Blue
It was one of those nights you only dream about,
A scene in a movie you’d go a lifetime without.
Where everything was better than it had been in years,
With your eyes gleaming golden and music in my ears.
Yet somehow we fell apart in the days that followed,
You cut me off and handed me a bitter pill to swallow
And now I’m banging my heart against a wall,
It’s bruised and bleeding but I use it like a bouncy ball.
Because I don’t know how to stop running after you,
Even when my reflection in the mirror is black and blue,
