I bear these scars
A constant reminder of my own inadequacy
I've held everything and nothing all at once
And all at once been altogether broken
But even scars fade with time
Only You remain
And my determination is not enough
Even so, I bear these scars

    General CommentI've held everything and nothing all at once
    And all at once been altogether broken

    This talks about how no matter how many things we have that still won't give us the happiness that we get through the Lord Jesus Christ. All the bits in this song about scars is talking about how the world can be a very hurtful place. Then on the line "even scars fade with time, only you remain" talks about the amazing healing power of God. "and my determination is not enough" talks about how we can not achieve happiness just on our own, we need to get God's help. great song.

    Only God remains when all else is gone, He is the Creator, infinite.
    Our determination isn't enough to get us through life, strength supplied by God is what we need.
