  • Haven't seen you since high school
    Good to see you're still beautiful
    Gravity hasn't started to pull
    Quite yet, I bet you're rich as hell
    One that's five and one that's three
    Been two years since he left me
    Good to know that you got free
    That town I know was keeping you down on your knees

    These bruises make for better conversation
    Loses the vibe that separates
    It's good to let you in again
    You're not alone in how you've been
    Everybody loses, we all got bruises
    We all got bruises

    Have you seen him? Not in years
    How 'bout her? No but I hear
    She's in Queens with the man of her dreams
    Funny back then, she said that about you
    Que sera, you'll never guess who I saw
    Remember Johnny B? Remember him? We were best friends, practically
    Let's do this soon again, ten years, is that what it's been?
    Can't believe how time flies by
    Leaving you makes me wanna cry

    These bruises make for better conversation
    Loses the vibe that separates
    It's good to let you in again
    You're not alone in how you've been
    Everybody loses, we all got bruises
    We all got bruises

    I would love to fix it all for you
    I would love to fix you too
    Please don't fix a thing, whatever you do

    These bruises make for better conversation
    Loses the vibe that separates
    It's good to know you've got a friend
    That you remember now and then
    Everybody loses

    These bruises make for better conversation
    Loses the vibe that separates
    It's good to let you in again
    You're not alone in how you've been
    Everybody loses
    Everybody loses
    Everybody loses
    We all got bruises
    We all got bruises
    We all got bruises Writer/s: Amund Bjorklund, Espen Lind, Pat Monahan
