With your eyes half closed you look at me
And just know that I wont be leaving no matter how tired that I get
And these hallways and silhouettes ring out like big cathedrals
You’re staring at the needle that’s staring back at you

Take this as a solemn promise

The wires that hold you up the beauty that surrounds you
Is taking its toll against the life left in you
But now I see the brightness the angels in the silences
The pride that can come from a scar

Scar has been deepening. It grows with each incision
The cut that always fails to mention. You love the way its leaving you
So try to stay awake
And try to do the best you can
And when it comes around again I know
You’ll be waiting for the chance to say

Take this as a solemn promise

The wires that hold you up the beauty that surrounds you
Is taking its toll against the life left in you
But now I see the brightness the angels in the silences
The pride that can come from a scar

    General Commentit's about how the superficial world around us -- the emphasis on beauty and figure and all that -- has put women under a certain standard, and how a girl struggles against that because of "scars", whether physical or metaphorical... it's a great positive song eh
