Scars

(Yes- these song lyrics are mega cliché, but- I wrote them for someone dear to my heart; therefore, they are Soup worthy). 

Oh, you’re doing everything you can
When you’re trying to become a better man- 
But these demons keep on holding you back.

Yeah, you’re doing everything you can
When nothing goes quite as you plan-
But I know you’ll get back on the right track. 

When it all seems too far gone,
And you feel like you can’t keep going on-
Just remember this my friend:
The hardships only make us stronger in the end. 

The past doesn’t define who we are,
Even if it leaves us with these scars.
No, the past can’t define who we are,
It can only leave us with some scars.

Oh, you’re doing everything you can
To attain something so much bigger than
The life that you’ve been given. 

Yeah, you’re doing everything you can
When nothing goes quite as you plan- 
But I know you’ll never give in

When it all seems too far gone,
And you feel like you can’t keep going on-
‘Cause you’ll remember this my friend:
These hardships only make you stronger in the end. 

The past doesn’t define who we are,
Even if it leaves us with these scars.
No, the past can’t define who we are,
It can only leave us with some scars.

Though a broken road has your feet glued to the ground,
And it seems all hope is nowhere to be found-
Just remember this my friend:
All these broken things can mend…

‘Cause the past doesn’t define who we are,
Even if it leaves us with these scars. 
No, the past can’t define who we are,
It can only leave us with some scars.

    A very amazing song. Would like to sing it on YouTube.com one day! The past seems to be a scary place at times. Sometimes, the scars never leave... but we need to keep getting on track. You really got me thinking here. Thanks a bill! Well-written lyrics and have yourself a grand week! -DWB
