Under Your Scars Lyrics

Do we make sense, I think we do
In spite of everything that we've been through
Oh and you say black and I say white
It's not about who's wrong
As long as it feels right
Don't think those stars won't align
Under your scars I pray
You're...

    You are so hurt by eachother. So much had been done to 'scar' you. You both disagree about everything but you belong together. Even though you want that person more than anything, it can't work. Too much had been done.

    In my life,being a cutter, I have many scars . My scars represent all my pain and hurt I felt. The scars are a constant reminder of the damage I did to myself because of the pain I felt and knew no other way to show my hurt. The song reminds me that it’s ok not to be perfect and the I shouldn’t be ashamed of my scars

    The vulnerable song came to Sully Erna shortly after he'd spent some time with his friend Lady Gaga. Erna explained: "In the short amount of time we hung out, she made me realize that we all have these imperfections, these wounds that we carry (whether they're physical or emotional) that cut so deep they can cripple us.

    These feelings leave us vulnerable, or embarrassed, or even unworthy at times. And our human nature - when they're exposed - is to shut down, rather than embrace them and realize that not only can we overcome them, but we can also become an inspiration to inspire others to have a voice and find their inner strength to show their scars off loudly and proudly to the world. Our 'Scars' are nothing more than our battle wounds from life and they helped mold you into who you are today."

    I think it can be anything physical, mental, emotional, passion. It can mean a number of things to anyone. The song hit home with me because of the loss of my mother. She had a scar on her leg from a gunshot wound that she survived, and she was scarred not only physically but mentally and emotionally. She was self conscious and at times fell into a deep depression. Her life was hard but she held it together for us kids and she did have a passion for life too. She passed away years ago and it was devastating. The part where it says "I wish you were here" then where it says something like"to be next to you, to hold you tight and breathe you in deep". That part really hit me because I wish I could hug my mom tight and that she was still here. A very powerful and emotional song. I'm going to be singing this loud and proud when I see Godsmack tonight

    I was so lost during this time. My whole world completely came crashing in the blink of an eye. And I couldn't get ahold of you, which absolutely broke me even more. I spent the next 9 months literally doing anything to kill myself, without actually killing myself. I am so sorry for the pain that I caused for you by walking away like I did. I never meant for it to end that way

    It is holding on to hope that the one you love will let you in. Saying we all suffer but you want to be next to them as they go through their battles. Begging to see you as capable of holding their hand through the darkness as you both walk towards the light.

    I never had a clear meaning of this song until one day in the car. One of my friends had suffered the loss of a close friend. I did not personally know the friend but I know they were close. After the funeral, we heard this song on the radio. I took his hand as support, and when the song finished, he was shaking and crying. Since that day I interpreted this song as a person who is grieving over the loss of a loved one. They are trying to understand more, and that is leaving them vulnerable. It is a song that tells of the pain of love, and the way it scars you.

    This song resonates such passion towards someone they love, even though they have been through so much. They tend
    To be opposites of each other and have completely different points of view, but work so well together. She is also his comfort and stability, but he is just unsure.

    This song can be anyone's wrong and right set of mind..
    It could interpret yourself, all you've been through,right or wrong..
    It could be your relationship with someone you love, but struggle with physically,mentally and emotionally..
    This song is unbelievably AWESOME!!

    True interpretation of someone’s life. So beautiful, and sad to be torn in the life you have and what one wishes it could be.

    The exact meaning of this song is unremarkable. She has had numerous operations which leaves scars. Some like an upside down cross and she just wants to be like a star but keep him inside. Don't depair Mr. Sully will make it all right.

    There is no meaning to this song. A group of writers got together and took words and phrases and rhymed them. This is like abstract art, only the writers did not have a purpose behind this song, but interpretation is left to the listener.

    My meaning Joe. JJ :(
    Do we make sense, I think we do ( are they meant to be together)
    In spite of everything that we've been through
    Oh and you say black and I say white
    It's not about who's wrong
    As long as it feels right
    Don't think those stars won't align ( they bumb heads constantly sometimes it’s seems just to disagree but there is still something amazing)

    Under your scars I pray
    You're like a shooting star in the rain ( beneath her anger beneath the things that make her so difficult at times he hopes she’s as beautiful as he believes she is )
    You're everything that feels like home to me, yeah. ( he is completely and utterly content and satisfied with only her for ever and feels nothing for any other women )
    Under your scars, I could live inside you time after time ( if the tough exterior that she portrays the protection she keeps the wall she holds could come down for him he would be only hers forever)
    If you'd only let me live inside your mind
    Live inside your mind ( if she would only let him in to her thoughts her pain her defense)

    Wish you were here
    Right beside me
    So I could watch you sleep
    Hold you body closer, breathe you deep
    And everything feels broken
    When you're not next to me(exactly what it says ) ( they are not together because of everything)
    Would you still be you
    If we weren't we ( would she be the way she is with anyone else.) would? Could she be happy with another ) would she let her guards down for another )

    Under your scars I pray
    You're like a shooting star in the rain
    You're everything that feels like home to me, yeah
    Under your scars, I could live inside you time after time
    If you'd only let me live inside your mind

    So hey, if you feel like coming down
    If you feel like coming around
    Just call my name out loud, na, na, na
    Hey, if you feel like coming down
    If you feel like coming around
    Just call my name out loud, na, na, na, yeah
    (He is there if she wants him but it’s just for the temporary good sex and the time when all the other is put aside )
    Under your scars I pray
    You're like a shooting star in the rain
    You're everything that feels like home to me, yeah
    Under your scars, I could live inside you time after time
    If you'd only let me live inside your mind
    Live inside your mind

    A song of love true love and the great pain that can come with it when your true love is a person that you clash with but yet you feel so in love and so close closer than can be expressed in words If there was just some way of making it work the agony of not be able to let go even when you know it’s broken
