lyrics

TEAR-SHAPED BRUISE

I Heard you got married
I wasn’t invited
Guess I shouldn’t be surprised
The way that everything went down

All my friends are gonna be there
But I won’t be sittin' home cryin'
I got better things to do
On the other side of town

Cuz Ronnie’s playin a punk rock show
That’s where I’m gonna go
Get on the whiskey train
Dance the night away

And now I got a tear-shaped bruise
Right over my heart
From slammin in the pit
While you were getting married

Don’t know how you threw that elbow
You were so far away
But now I got a tear-shaped bruise
Right over my heart from you

We used to sing rock n roll
You showed me your soul
Shinin' in your eyes
Shinin' in that harmony
Thought I knew what I was doin'

But it was the road to ruin
No future
For you and me
No future

And I know it was very
Very unrequited
But I still remember your eyes
And how I’d just fall in and drown

And I wish it was me there
Not that other guy and
I could just keep singin' with you
Till the next ice age comes around

But Ronnie’s playin' a punk rock show
Guess that’s where I’m gonna go
Get on the whiskey train
Dance the night away

And now I got a tear-shaped bruise
Right over my heart
Slammin' in the pit
While you were getting married

Don’t know how you threw that elbow
You were so far away
But now I got a tear-shaped bruise
Right over my heart from you
