"Permanent Scar" as written by and Cedric/thompson Lemoyne....
What kind of wound
Leaves a permanent scar
On a beautiful heart
A beautiful heart

What kind of wound
Leaves a permanent scar
On a beautiful heart
A once beautiful heart

Was it you and me
Or the summer breeze
Sometimes I think
Day will close so sweet
And just as gone
Just as gone to me

What kind of wound
Leaves a permanent scar
On a beautiful heart
A once beautiful heart

What kind of wound
Leaves a permanent scar
On a beautiful heart
My beautiful heart

I wear a shroud
Heavy and true
That keeps me from
Loving anyone but you
In the secret hour
I face my darkest fear

Was it you and me
Or the summer breeze
Sometimes I think
Day will close so sweet
I wear a shroud
Heavy and true
In the secret hour
I face my darkest fear

Permanent scar
Permanent scar
Permanent scar
Permanent scar
Permanent scar
Permanent scar

    General Commentshit. this describes how i feel about my last relationship better than i could:
    'permanent scar..
    on a once beautiful heart.
    i wear a shroud heavy and true
    that keeps me from loving anyone but you.
    in the secret hour,
    i face my darkest fear.
    permanent scar.'

    everything involving orenda fink is incredible.

    My InterpretationThis song, like almost all of theirs, seems pretty straight-forward. The singer is speaking as someone who once thought they had found an ideal love, someone who would never hurt them, and who could appreciate their own 'beautiful heart'. Unfortunately, it ended badly, leaving her wondering not only how someone could be so cruel to her, and how something so treasured that seemed so right could be broken, but also certain that it has left her broken as well. Her deepest fear, now, is that she is, indeed, permanently scarred in her heart and soul, to such an extent that she will never be able to trust enough to ever love again -- be it trust in someone new, or trust in her own judgment which proven to be so painfully wrong before -- and/or that she may still love the person who hurt her so, and that she always will, to the extent that there may never be room enough in her heart for a new love, even if she did manage to overcome the fear and pain she's been left with enough to even attempt it. Anyone who's ever been deeply hurt by someone they truly loved and trusted completely will have no problem at all empathizing -- or identifying -- with the feelings .expressed in this song..
