James Bay - Scars Lyrics




You're setting off,
It's time to go, the engine's running
My mind is lost,
We always knew this day was coming
And now it's more frightening than it's ever gonna be

We grow apart,
I watch you on the red horizon
Your lion's heart
Will protect you under stormy skies
And I will always be listening for your laughter and your tears

And as soon as I can hold you once again
I won't let go of you, I swear

We live through scars this time
But I've made up my mind
We can't leave us behind anymore

Your hands are cold,
Your lips are turning blue, you're shaking
This fragile heart,
So heavy in my chest, it's breaking
And in the dark, you try to make a pay phone call to me

But you're miles away,
You're breaking up, you're on your own
It's hard to take,
I need an hour just to say hello
But I can't make the truth of this work out for you or me

And for all the pennies in your pocket
We barely get a second just to speak

We live through scars this time
But I've made up my mind
We can't leave us behind anymore
We'll have to hurt from now
But next time there's no doubt
'Cause I can't go without you anymore

Oh, no, no
Oh, oh.

We live through scars this time
But I've made up my mind
No, we can't leave us behind anymore

We'll have to hurt from now
But next time, there's no doubt
'Cause I can't go without you anymore
No, I can't go without you anymore

  6. Margret Humer

    I've just heared this song and it's more than this beautiful sound, the amazing voice and this touching lyrics... i feel the daughter, that flew from the prison of believings she was told every day since her birh and is just making a payphone call with the her left money to a loved one.. a homeless boy, who is freezing and took his last piece of hope and put it into a call to his trusted one, or a lover, who takes all his strange to call his loved one and pray for a second chance!! thank you SO much.

  7. Dani Schäfli

    Du mosch nid grad rede, wenn du da nid willsch.. Du bisch scho immer frei.. Aber heicho mosch früehner oder spöter.. Stoh zu dir.. Da isch am schönste gsi.. 🌹💝
    Da ha ich gliäbt.. 💔
    Ich liäb dich.. ❤

  8. Dani Schäfli

    Du willsch, dass ich alles vergiss.. aber ich will nid mis Läbä vergesse.. und bevor ichs cha vergesse, mösst ichs kenne.. 💔💝
    Ich liäb dich über alles..
    💔🌹

    Hermosa canción

  70. suzie wong

    I stopped listening to music in 1992 Thanksgiving day, the day my father died.
    I know I had missed a lot of new music and having worked in the music business it was very difficult to walk away from. The only way I can explain "why" is that when I hear music I just don't listen to it, I "feel" the music more than hear it.
    It was by a fluke accident that that I was in a relationship with a musician. Someone I never wanted to be involved with, a musician. It was by God's grace he was a good man and had already lived the "rockstar's life" and that lifestyle no longer appealed to him. You still loved music and you love writing music they also wanted to be home with his family more than almost anything.
    My son called him "dad" and my parents loved him because they could see how much my son loved him. There's a famous song that he wrote with his guitarist and childhood friend. It was used in a movie but they never got credit for it. The song was written because of the passing of my father as well as several other friends that we lost in a very, very short amount of time. None by drugs or drinking and none from natural causes. It was a painful time to say the least. My father was the oldest at 54 and the youngest was 29. Now when I listen to music like this, I realized I missed a lot. Although, I know listening to this kind of quality music/lyrics would have broken me completely emotionally. Even now I struggle to listen but I can feel and hear the beauty in it as well.
    Yes, I'm very late to the party but at least I showed up.
    James Bay, thank you for sharing so much of yourself to all of us.
    ❤⚘🎼

    I need a hour just to say hello, but I can’t make the truth of this work out for you and me .. and for all the penny’s in your pocket we barely get a chance to speak .. what an interesting way of saying “a penny for your thoughts”.. wow. If that was his intention, it’s deep..

  77. Hoelho Art

    in a music industry where creating products not art is the standard, his music renews my faith in the power of the individual artist.

  78. Danny Mitchell

    One of my favorite songs ever! I definitely a got a little bit emotional when I heard it the first time

    Oh, oh, oh

    Yeah yeah

  89. Callie Moore

    This song has the most beautiful one line lyric ever. It just sums up so well how desperate you become to be with someone you truly love, when you finally realise its really all over. 'It will take an hour just to say hello' Ouch!!

  90. Random Being

    These days we need more people like him , not those so called musicians today that use auto tune and shit.We need musicians to play their music to inspire others , to spread good vibes , to spread the word about something we have to change in our society .Music is made to cross all boundaries .
