Beth Orton – This One's Gonna Bruise lyrics

Do you even know what goes on in a heart anymore
Constellations turned into little polaroids in a cardboard box
And I wanted so desperately to prove
You were still breathing' but you wouldn't move
Okay, okay what a thing to choose
This one's gonna bruise
You'll learn one day won't you
What you want is bad for the souls lost out in the rain
Afraid of the dark still in pain, still in pain

Did you even notice how the wind didn't change that much
Fluctuations, only sheets that you moved to be sure it was us
And I wanted so desperately to say
That you could trust me, but I was lying anyway
Okay, okay what a thing to lose
Left out in the rain, misused
You'll learn one day, won't you
You'll learn some day, won't you
What you had was good for a while, then it changed
Got too intense, made it strange
And I feel bad for you, I feel bad for you
But I don't know why, don't know why
'Cause I'm as dead as you
