"Scars" as written by and Jeppe/stabell Federspiel....
Did I say something stupid?
There goes one more mistake
Do I bore you with my problems?
Is that why you turn away?
Do you know how hard I tried
To become what you want me to be?

Take me
This is all that I've got
This is all that I'm not
All that I'll ever be
I've got flaws, I've got faults
Keep searching for your perfect heart
It doesn't matter who you are
We all have our scars
We all have our scars

You say don't act like a child
But what if its a father I need?
Its not like you don't know what you got yourself into
Don't tell me I'm the one who's naive
Do you know how hard I've tried
To become who you want me to be?

Take me
This is all that I've got
This is all that I'm not
All that I'll ever be
I've got flaws, I've got faults
Keep searching for your perfect heart
It doesn't matter who you are
We all have our scars
We all have our scars

Come on, just let it go
These are things you can't control
Your expectations, your explanations
Don't make sense to me
You and your alternatives
Don't send me to your therapists
Deep down, I know what you mean
And I'm not sure that's what I wanna be
No

Take me
This is all that I've got
This is all that I'm not
All that I'll ever be
I've got flaws, I've got faults
Keep searching for your perfect heart
It doesn't matter who you are
We all have our scars
We all have our scars
Oh no no no

Did I say something stupid
There goes one more mistake

    My InterpretationI LOVE this song. Her vocals on it are incredible. You can feel the raw emotion just by listening. I nearly cried the first time I heard it. It was "gut wrenching" and it really got to you. I still don't know who it's towards. It can be interpreted as "daughter-father" or Allison could be singing it to a guy whom she can't be perfect for. I love the meaning of the song though..on how we all have scars and we're not perfect...but these "scars" make up who we are.

    MemoryThis song brings back some pretty painful memories. I got into a fight with my dad and it got physical real fast. I scratched him and he yanked me out of my room and sent me skidding across the floor and crashing to the ground. I also said some pretty hurtful things and he slapped me. I talked to a friend on what I should do and she told me to move out. I did. I'm now living with my mom and I'm having the same issues. Help!!
