"Bruised and Scarred" as written by David Jonathan Bendeth, Bobby Huff, Brooks Patrick Betts, Christopher Jake Bundrick, Alexander Antonio Garcia, Jeremy Stephen Lenzo and Derek Michael Sanders....
It all goes back to the first kiss
It was the one I thought I'd never miss
Maybe we were one of the lucky ones
Maybe I'm just not quite strong enough

This was supposed to be the easy part
But breaking down is what I found hard
Now I'm wearing this smile that I don't believe in
Inside, I feel like screaming

She gave me every reason to believe
I'd found the one
But my doubts, somehow
They sold me out

I'm bruised and scarred
Save me from this broken heart
All my love will slowly fade and fall apart
Someone please sing this lovesick melody
Call my name if you're afraid
I'm just a kiss away

I'm finding out in the hardest way
The consequence of every mistake I've ever made
Baby, what's it like to be alone? (Baby, what's it like to be alone?)
I don't wanna know, I don't wanna know

She gave me every reason to believe
I'd found the one
But my doubts, somehow
They sold me out

I'm bruised and scarred
Save me from this broken heart
All my love will slowly fade and fall apart
Someone please sing this lovesick melody
Call my name if you're afraid
I'm just a kiss away

So, baby, be honest
Is this what you wanted?
We lost where we started
And found out much more than we wanna know (More than we wanna know)
About how we're letting go, oh (About how we're letting go)

So, baby, be honest
Is this what you wanted?
We lost where we started
And found out much more than we wanna know

I'm bruised and scarred
Save me from this broken heart
All my love will slowly fade and fall apart
Someone please sing this lovesick melody
Call my name if you're afraid
I'm just a kiss away

    General Commenti think it's stupid to complain about their new album and how it's "generic" because there's nothing generic about Mayday Parade. i think you have to be a true fan to appreciate all their music. obviously artists develop, not all of their albums will stay the same and this is just a new part of Mayday Parade. and it is amazing <3 favorite line " But my doubts, somehow
    They sold me out" (:

    My OpinionI absolutely love the new album. And Jason Lancaster didn't write any of this album, so that's why it's sooo different, but all the songs are still deep, just like the other album. But go listen to Go Radio, for Jason Lancaster's songs. Anyways, I love this album, and Mayday Parade.. And Go Radio<3

    General CommentThe lyrics are amazing! I don't understand why people say the lyrics aren't deep. Serously. Actually LISTEN to the lyrics.

    I love Mayday Parade <33
