Lyrics

Scars

Written By: Jason Vare (Shagpile)

YOUR WORDS ARE HIDDEN INSIDE
YEAH YOUR WORDS ARE HIDDEN INSIDE
AND IT TEARS YOU APART
WHEN YOU CANT LET THEM OUT

YOUR FEELINGS ARE PUSHED TO ONE SIDE
YOUR FEELINGS GET PUSHED TO ONE SIDE
THEYRE PLACE IN A CHEST TIED WITH CHAINS
WITH YOUR FEARS AND YOUR DOUBTS

THERES WORDS THAT YOUR NEEDING TO SAY
THINGS THAT YOU JUST CANNOT DO
SEEMS THERES NO WAY OUT
FROM THE INSIDE OF YOU

SHE STANDS AT THE BAR ALL ALONE
SHE STANDS THERE INFRONT OF YOU
STILL THERES NO WAY OUT
FROM THE INSIDE OF YOU

THERES TIMES THAT YOU JUST WALK AWAY
THERES TIMES THAT YOU JUST WALK AWAY
AS IT EATS.. AWAY , AT YOUR LIFE
MORE EACH DAY

IT BREAKS YOU APART AT THE SEAMS
OH IT BREAKS YOU APART AT THE SEAMS
THEN LEAVES YOU WITH SCARS
TO REMIND YOU SHE'S BEEN

THERES WORDS THAT YOUR NEEDING TO SAY
THINGS THAT YOU JUST CANNOT DO
SEEMS THERES NO WAY OUT
FROM THE INSIDE OF YOU

SHE STILL STANDS THERE ALL ALONE
SHE STANDS THERE INFRONT OF YOU
BUT THERES NO WAY OUT
FROM THE INSIDE OF YOU

NO THERES NO WAY OUT
FROM THE INSIDE OF YOU
