Oh, I think I got you figured out
Boy, I think I know what you are all about
Finally, I can finally see you pull the darkness right down over me
But now I see

Everybody knows that I'm a mess
Everybody knows you stole the heart from out my chest
Every thing you ever said was a lie
You're hiding behind your sweet, your sweet goodbyes

I'm black and blue 'cause I fell for you
You said you never would let me go
Ooh, how could I ever know?
I'm black and blue and in love with you
You said you never would let me fall
You never would let me fall, but I'm falling
You never would let me fall
You never would let me fall, but I'm falling

Oh, I know I'm never gonna stop
I keep burning time away until I hit the top
One day, I'll wake up and take up to the open skies
And I'll be the one with all the sweet goodbyes

I'm black and blue 'cause I fell for you
You said you never would let me go
Ooh, how could I ever know?
I'm black and blue and in love with you
You said you never would let me fall
You never would let me fall, but I'm falling
You never would let me fall
You never would let me fall, but I'm falling

Falling, falling, over and over again
I'm always falling, over and over
But I'll get up, I'll make it
I need some time to un-break it
I feel like I'm falling, I'm falling far away from you
It's what I need to do

Black and blue and in love with you
Black and blue and in love with you
You said you never would let me fall
You never would let me fall, but I'm falling
You never would let me fall
You never would let me fall, but I'm falling
You said you never would let me fall
You never would let me fall, but I'm falling
And I'm falling, black and blue
It's what I need to do
