Scars

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. Written for my Brother

Hey there are you still writing? I ask but myself am not writing much. I'm going back now amazed at some stuff I wrote not happy with some things and seeing a bunch of grammatical errors which I hate lol. Hope everything is well. This song could have been actually could be for me. Nice well I don't know if nice is the word but deep and thoughtful.

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
