Scars - TobyMac




The Experience: You're not alone... But you can't be there for them if you're not willing to suffer with them...

Music video: It's a stripped down outline of life, dominated by storm and lightning. For most of the video TobyMac is falling through a storm clogged sky towards ground aflame with lightning strikes. Dismal. But with a few brief moments of clear starry skies to inspire hope in the place that help comes from. The ending is hopeful too - a sailboat becalmed.

The Meaning of Scars: TobyMac stays true to rocky relationship - bottom kinda fell out - in the best way. He doesn't ask for more. Doesn't demand. He just stands there - you're not alone. Scars takes a realistic look at our world -  life cuts so deep and we all broken people.  It stays true - try and remember you, you're not alone. It acknowledges the toll life takes - scars come with livin'. But it stays true - passion never counts the cost. TobyMac reminds us that passion is so much more than fire. True passion is being solid bedrock for those you love.

Ask yourself: Is your love solid?

Album: The Elements (2019)

LYRICS:


No, no
You're on?
Just deep in it right now
I gotta go
Hey

Had you on my mind, I
Had a little time, I
Know we kinda overdue
Turnin' back the pages
To our younger days, yeah
I can still imagine you

Boomin' like the thunder
Chasin' life with wonder
With fire that could light a room
Bottom kinda fell out
Waited for the rebound
But you never made a move

When life cuts so deep
Try and remember

You, You're not alone
We've all been there (been there, been there)
Scars come with livin'
You, you're not alone
We've all been there, oh (been there, been there, oh)
So lift your head, lift your head
Lift your head to where your help comes from
Yeah, you, you're not alone
We've all been there
Scars come with livin' (with livin', with livin')

Life ain't got no sequel
We all broken people
The only road to found is lost
Oversimplifyin'
Ain't no shame in tryin'
Passion never counts the cost (counts the cost)

Now you won't take my phone calls
You won't text me back at all
I just want to see you
I can't stand to see you gone
Yesterday I missed you
Yesterday I played your song
I'm oversimplifyin'
I'm oversimplifyin'
(I'm oversimplifying, I'm oversimplifying, I'm oversimplifying)

But try and remember

You, You're not alone
We've all been there (been there, been there)
Scars come with livin'
You, you're not alone
We've all been there, oh (been there, been there, oh)
So lift your head, lift your head
Lift your head to where your help comes from
Yeah, you, you're not alone
We've all been there
Scars come with livin'

Scars come, scars come, oh, scars come
Oh, scars come with livin'
Scars come, scars come, oh, scars come
Oh, scars come with livin'

It doesn't matter who you are (who you are)
This world gon' leave some battle scars (battle scars)
It doesn't matter who you are (who you are)
This world gon' leave some battle scars (battle scars)
It doesn't matter who you are (who you are)
This world gon' leave some battle scars (battle scars)
It doesn't matter who you are (who you are)
This world gon' leave some battle scars (ooh)

You, You're not alone
We've all been there
Scars come with livin'
You, you're not alone, you're not alone
So lift your head up (scars come, scars come) (head up)
To where your help comes from
Lift your head up (scars come, scars come) (head up, head up)
Oh, scars come with livin'
Lift your head up (scars come, scars come) (lift your head, lift your head, lift your hea-hea-head)
To where your help comes from
Lift your head up (scars come, scars come)(lift your head, lift your head, lift your head)
Oh, scars come with livin'
Lift your head up (scars come, scars come) (head up, head up)

It doesn't matter who you are (who you are)
This world gon' leave some battle scars (battle scars)
Lift your head up (scars come, scars come) (lift your head, lift your head, lift your head)
It doesn't matter who you are (who you are)
This world gon' leave some battle scars (battle scars)
It doesn't matter who you are (who you are)
This world gon' leave some battle scars
