Lyrics

Beautiful Scars

A rough and rowdy child , I tried to fly
From that tree house in grandpa’s yard
Made some cardboard wings with duct tape & string
I flew fast, but not very far
Still think I deserved a prize
‘Cause nobody saw me cry
N’ I got one beautiful scar …

When I was seventeen, just livin’ the dream
Felt my whole world fall apart
A high school Jezebel, she cast her spell
Tore a gaping hole in my heart
She cut me deep I guess
But I didn’t bleed to death
N’ I got a beautiful scar …

People and places and moments in time
With every turn of the cards
They come and go like shadows in the night
A few leave footprints in your heart
Oh, but some leave beautiful scars …

What’s comin’ down the road, I just don’t know
It’s hard to see very far
One thing I can say, is come what may
I’ll do my best to play my part
When all is said and done
I hope folks say I was one
Of those beautiful scars …

People and places and moments in time
With every turn of the cards
They come and go like shadows in the night
A few leave footprints in your heart
Oh, but some leave beautiful scars

Beautiful scars …
