September: Bruises (Chairlift)

I first heard this song on the iPod Nanochromatic commercial and immediately fell in love with it. Of course, it doesn't hurt that I want an iPod Nano, but the song really is just sweet. Apple has a way of 'launching' a band by using their song in their ads, so I wonder how Chairlift will do after this.

But really, the lyrics are just totally sweet and I can't help but love it. The tune is catchy and infectious and yet it's not too peppy. It's just chill. Of course, the fact that I can so relate to the lyrics is just bonus.

I tried to do handstands for you
I tried to do headstands for you
Everytime I fell on you yeah everytime I fell

I tried to do handstands for you
But everytime I fell for you
I'm permanently black and blue, permanently blue for you

I tried to do handstands for you
I tried to do headstands for you
Everytime I fell on you yeah everytime I fell
I tried to do handstands for you but everytime I fell for you
I'm permanently black and blue, permanently blue for

You-ooo
For you-ooo
So black and blue-oooo
For you-ooo

I grabbed some frozen strawberries so I could ice your bruisy knees
But frozen things they all unfreeze and now I taste like
All those frozen strawberries I used to chill your bruisy knees,
Hot July ain't good to me
I'm pink and black and blue

I got bruises on my knees for you
And grass stains on my knees for you
Got holes in my new jeans for you

Got pink and black and blue

Got bruises on my knees for you
And grass stains on my knees for you
Got holes in my new jeans for you
Got pink and black and blue for

You-ooo
For you-ooo
So black and blue-ooo
For you-oooo

Do-doo-do-do-do
Do-doo-do-do-do
Do-doo-do-do-do
Do-doo-do-do-do
Do-doo-do-do-do
