Battle Scars Lyrics

The wound heals but it never does
That's cause you're at war with love
You're at war with love, yeah
These battle scars, don't look like they're
fading
Don't look like they're ever going away
They ain't never gonna change
These battle
Never let a wound ruin me
But I feel like ruin's wooing me
Arrow holes that never close from cupid on
a shooting spree
Feeling stupid cause I know it ain't no you
and me
But when you're trying to beat the odds up
Been trying to keep your nods up and you
know that you should know
And let her go but the fear of the unknown
Holding another lover strong sends you
back into the zone
With no Tom Hanks to bring you home
A lover not a fighter on the frontline with a
poem
Trying to write yourself a rifle
Maybe sharpen up a song
To fight the tanks and drones of you being
alone
I wish I never looked, I wish I never
touched
I wish that I could stop loving you so much
Cause I'm the only one that's trying to keep
us together
When all of the signs say that I should
forget her
I wish you weren't the best, the best I ever
had
I wish that the good outweighed the bad
Cause it'll never be over, until you tell me
it's over
These battle scars, don't look like they're
fading
Don't look like they're ever going away
They ain't never gonna change
These battle
You shouldn't have but you said it
It shouldn't have happened but you let it
Now you're down on the ground screaming
medic
The only thing that comes is the post-
traumatic stresses
Shields, body armors and vests
Don't properly work, that's why you're in a
locker full of hurt
The enemy within and all the fires from
your friends
The best medicine is to probably just let her
win
I wish I couldn't feel, I wish I couldn't love
I wish that I could stop cause it hurts so
much
And I'm the only one that's trying to keep
us together
When all of the signs say that I should
forget her
I wish you weren't the best, the best I ever
had
I wish that the good outweighed the bad
Cause it'll never be over, until you tell me
it's over
These battle scars, don't look like they're
fading
Don't look like they're ever going away
They ain't never gonna change
These battle
I wish I couldn't feel, I wish I couldn't love
I wish that I could stop cause it hurts so
much
And I'm the only one that's trying to keep
us together
When all of the signs say that I should
forget her
I wish you weren't the best, the best I ever
had
I wish that the good outweighed the bad
Cause it'll never be over, until you tell me
it's over
Cause you've set me on fire
I've never felt so alive, yeah
Hoping wounds heal, but it never does
That's because you're at war with love
And I'm at the point of breaking
And it's impossible to shake it
See, you hoped the wound heals, but it
never does
That's cause you're at war with love
Hope it heals, but it never does
That's cause you're at war with love!
These battle scars, don't look like they're
fading
Don't look like they're ever going away
They ain't never gonna change
These battle
These battle scars, don't look like they're
fading
Don't look like they're ever going away
They ain't never gonna change
These battle

This song is really good. Love is just a battelfield, it's either you fight and win , or lose everything. Reading this song just reminds me of my situation.... Nothing is better than love but sometimes it hurts a lot... We have to learn to forget and heal

It is about a man who lost the woman he loves, written from battle perspective. Lupe Fiasco references Saving Private Ryan (Tom Hanks line) and The Hurt Locker (locker full of hurt verse). A soldier who broke off our engagement sent me this song from overseas. Battle Scars, for sure.

I can see what they're trying to say, but the writing is pretty bad. We've got a repeated double negative (ain't never), and some dodgy lines like (don't properly work). At least follow the basic rules of English.
