Scars - Papa Roach

I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
My weakness is that I cared too much
And my scars remind me that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

I'm drunk and I'm feeling down
And I just wanna be alone
I'm pissed 'cuz you came around
Why don't you just go home?

'Cuz you channeled all your pain
And I can't help you fix yourself
You're making me insane
All I can say is

I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
And my weakness is that I cared too much
And our scars remind us that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

I tried to help you once
Against my own advice
I saw you going down
But you never realized

That you're drowning in the water
So I offered you my hand
Compassion's in my nature
Tonight is our last stand

I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
And my weakness is that I cared too much
And our scars remind us that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

I'm drunk and I'm feeling down
And I just wanna be alone
You should've never come around
Why don't you just go home?

'Cuz you're drowning in the water
And I tried to grab your hand
I left my heart open
But you didn't understand
But you didn't understand

Go fix yourself!

I can't help you fix yourself
But at least I can say I tried
I'm sorry but I gotta move on with my own life

I can't help you fix yourself
But at least I can say I tried
I'm sorry but I gotta move on with my own life

I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
And my weakness is that I cared too much
And our scars remind us that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
And my weakness is that I cared too much
And our scars remind us that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

I absolutely love this song. I had to share it with everyone. I think it says exactly how I feel about people from my past. I have a tendancy to care a little to much and not know when I am the only one trying. It is hard sometimes to say this hurts and move on and know no matter what you gained something from the experience. Either way great song and I just wanted to share.

Truly awesome lyrics!............Papa Roach lead singer Jacoby Shaddix wrote the song, and once said that the song was "about trying to help someone who really doesn't want you to help them."

I totall agree. That makes sense to me. I love this song.
