Elvis Costello - "Heart Shaped Bruise" lyrics

Tell me now

Or are you only teasing'
I felt the cold hard facts of life

Five degrees from freezing

Does it amuse you to always hurt me so'
I try my best it's not enough

Should I give up and let you'

What more is there to take from me'

There's nothing else to give you, dear

There's nothing more that I can lose
Except this Heart Shaped Bruise

It will fade
From purple to violet

It will fade
Just as the day dissolves into twilight

Tell me now

Or am I only dreaming'

And now you say you're leaving
You said that you'd be mine for life
If I could hold you once more before you go

When I approach you just lash out

Should I give up and let you'

What more is there to take from me'

There's nothing else to give you, dear

There's nothing more that I can lose

Accept this Heart Shaped Bruise

It will fade from purple to violet

It will fade'
She's pulling out the pin
