I tried to do handstands for you
But everytime I fell for you
I’m permanently black and blue, permanently blue for
That’s right, it’s the song everyone’s talking about – the song from the ipod nano “chromatic” ads! It is fun and happy and cute. But it’s also “indy”, which means that you’re allowed to like its cuteness.
The music in other parts is really different to the ad, nice and synthy, and there’s a boy singing too! Mmm, boy singing.
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
This song makes me think of sunny afternoons that aren’t perfect and frozen strawberries that melt at inopportune moments, and things that are more important than getting holes in your new jeans.
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
