Wounded Lyrics

the guy who put his hands on you,
has got nothing to do with me.
And the bruises that you feel will heal
and i hope you come around,
cause we're missing you.

you used to speak so easy,
now you're afaid to talk to me.
Its like walking...

    Wounded is about a woman who was raped. She is the speaker's girlfriend, but she has changed so much after the incident that she will not touch him, or go out with him and their friends.

    Like some of their other songs, like Jumper, Wounded says I know it is hard for me to understand, but I'm only here for you. You will feel better if you change your attitude and change your actions, and go back to the way we were, as hard as it is to do so.

    Be strong and don't let it get to you: "Back down the bully to the back of the bus/'Cause it's time for them to be scared of us...You're a summertime hottie with her socks in the air/screaming I don't care, baby I don't care."

    The song basically says, be a survivor, not a victim.

    It's about a girl who loves watching sports at a bar. She has an altercation with a fan of an opposing team which leada to being attacked by a guy. Now she's nervous to go back out & enjoy the fall season of sports on tv at the bar. Its easy to romanticize this into something more powerful & serious due to the composition, tempo & vocal delivery. That's what 3eb did best.

    this song is about a girl, who was mentally abused by her boyfriend, she was adoormat to him and to his family. he let people disrespect her and she had so many emotional bruises, she was wounded.. she closed herself off to the world and her friends, and her friends miss her and her laughs, and they miss hanging out with her, because now she's all about women groups and women rights because she's wounded.

    I believe this song is about a girl who has been burned by a previous love... someone who really broke her to the point that she is not the same person. She gets into another relationship and the new man in her life is letting her know that the guy in her past has nothing to do with him. He is trying to explain to her that she needs to let go, move on, live again and give their love a fighting chance.

    The guy gets drunk and beats his girlfriend like a drum. He changes when he's drunk "The guy who put his hands on you, has nothing to do with me." He doesn't enjoy wounding her but he cant help it..
