Matthew Barber – Easily Bruised lyrics

Lend me an ear I'll tell you a story
'Bout a man who didn't know how to be
Joined a travellin' circus from pei to bc

I was playing dead every morning
I was taking dives every night
Someone came and swept me off my feet in midflight

Now without a love I really got nothing
Without a love I'd hang up my shoes
It'd be a world of suffering
If this one I was ever to lose

So I'm hanging on with all of my power
I'm hanging on as tight as a noose
Around the midnight hour
She said remember that I'm easily bruised

I've heard everything that I wanted
Had so much I threw it away
She could see that what I needed was never there anyway

Now everything around me is shifting
I'm running like a child through a maze
But I'm never lost completely 'cause an angel keeps me safe

Lord, without a love I'm dead in the water
Without a love my aim is untrue
My blood gets hotter and hotter
At the thought of leaving this angel blue

I'm hanging on with all of my power
It's looking like our bodies might fuse
And when our cries got louder
She said 'Remember that I'm easily bruised. '

When I can't let go
And if I love too hard I'll hurt my baby so

Now everything makes sense at the moment
And the moment's independent of time
But who decides where truth resides
Your guess is as good as mine

So how 'bout a sip of the good stuff
How 'bout 'nother round on me
If this moment lasts forever
Then the truth we might just see

But without a love I don't have an inkling
I'd be howling every night at the moon
And if the stars stop twinkling
The end will sure be coming soon

So I'm hanging on with all of my power
In the garden where we're all free to choose
Any fruit or flower
She said remember that I'm easily bruised
Remember that I'm easily bruised
Remember that I'm easily bruised
