Lyrics

BRUISES ON MY HEART

A love I thought so perfect
A love I thought so right
oh oh oh
A love that rose each morning
A love that said goodnight
oh oh oh

But in the course of conversation
ugly words grew

Pre-Chorus
The bruises on my heart
were secrets whispered
to a falling star
The bruises on my heart
locked up in the darkness
with my hidden scars

CHORUS
Feeling worthless was the sin
that had me bound to him
His lying was an art
Pounding me into the dirt
became his only work
those bruises on my heart

A love that faded slowly
making me the bad one
oh oh oh
A partner who saw nothing
wrong in what he'd done
oh oh oh

In the course of such resentment
his hatred grew

Pre-Chorus

CHORUS

Bridge
I remembered who I was
The game changed
Now the only time I'll look back
is to see how far I came


Pre-Chorus
The bruises on my heart
are memories fading
His narcissistic fall
The bruises on my heart
thrown into the garbage
like a bad memoir

CHORUS
My greatest strength is Love
I'm a survivor
and I am healed and strong
My heart is right here beating
a freedom fighter
No bruises on my heart
