Liner Notes: 

this is about someone being in love with
a person who won't commit
but goes along with the love thing
but is holding back, scared of being hurt again,
maybe

Lyrics: 

YOUR SCARS

I cannot know what you feel
unless you tell me
unless you show me
how can you ever heal

can't know if your love's real
unless I hold it
until you unfold it
all you have is lonely

it's only an emotion, you said
under your breath
what the hell
who needs that stress

stop playing hide n seek with your heart
will I ever really know who, you are
will you ever step out of, the dark
let me see your scars
let me see your scars
show me where they are
let me see your scars
I can bend those bars
let me see your scars
show me where they are
let me see your scars

if it's in there
I can't tell
you hide it
too well

who defines you
makes you who you are
love will make us whole
stitch up all the tares

can I know the real you
who you keeping from the truth
love will never run smooth
I don't just want the beautiful

stop playing hide n seek with your heart
will I ever really know who, you are
will you ever step out of, the dark
let me see your scars
let me see your scars
show me where they are
let me see your scars
I can bend those bars
let me see your scars
show me where they are
let me see your scars

what kind of man do you think I am
you think I'd turn my back on you
d'you think I wouldn't understand
all I want is, me and you

what kind of plans do you think I have
they involve you, you're what I wanna do
so c'mon, let this be the first move
I don't just want the beautiful

This is very beautiful and expresses a very complicated feeling, reminds me of the hedgehog dilemma

Oh the complexity of relationships like this one. Reminds me of Roxanne. Great writing on this one, Tony. I'm still filing through your tunes to where the muse will take me. I'll fill you in soon.

Really wonderful insight to a complex relationship where the fear of being to open and vulnerable impacts the connection and the ability to grow more deeply. You convey this beautifully and have such a strong memorable chorus that really conveys the essence of the message so well.
