Background

Melanie has stated that her second album will be more inspired by hip-hop, similar to how this song is written. This song is the aftermath of a relationship and a girl being with men she doesn't even like. They're just "band-aids on her knees", or rebounds.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Just cause I bought a band-aid
Doesn't mean I'm able to clean the scars that run
Deeper than all my old demons that I keep under still water

[Verse 2]
Just cause you give me flowers
Doesn't cover up the smell of the dead body
Or raise the dead body of a girl who got shut down before

[Verse 3]
Just cause you crack the window
Doesn't mean I'm able to clear the air that made it
Hard to breathe before
You came around here

[Verse 4]
Just cause you say you love me
Doesn't mean that I'm gonna look you in the eyes
Pretend to be surprised
And say I love you back (love you back)

[Chorus]
Cause I'm tripping, tripping on rocks
Cuttin' on my ankles, when will the blood stop?
Blue, blue knees
Fallin' for the next man
Who breathes

[Post-Chorus]
I need a band-aid recovery
Don't get too close 'cause you're really nothing to me
You're just a band-aid on my knees
You're just a band-aid recovery
I'll rip you off when I please
I'll rip you off when I bleed

[Verse 5]
Just cause I'm coming over
Doesn't mean I'll be there when you wake up
Cause coming over doesn't mean that I'm over him

[Verse 6]
Just cause you are my band-aid
Doesn't mean I want you to stick around
Cause rebounds get washed away the next time it rains

[Chorus]
Cause I'm tripping, tripping on rocks
Cuttin' on my ankles, when will the blood stop?
Blue, blue knees
Fallin' for the next man
Who breathes

[Post-Chorus]
I need a band-aid recovery
Don't get too close 'cause you're really nothing to me
You're just a band-aid on my knees
You're just a band-aid recovery
I'll rip you off when I please
I'll rip you off when I bleed
