1 Battle Scars By: Guy Sebastian and Lupe Fiasco

2 Lyrics The wound heals but it never does That's cause you at war with... love You at war with... love These battle scars Don't look like they're fading Don't look like they're ever going away They ain't never gonna change These battle... Love...

3 Never let a woman ruin me But I feel like ruins ruin me Arrow holes that never close from cupid on a shooting spree Feeling stupid cause I know it ain't no you and me But when you're trying to beat the odds up Been trying to keep your nods up and you know that you should know And let her go but the fear of the unknown Holding another lover strong sends you back into the zone With no Tom Hanks to bring you home A lover not a fighter on the frontline with a poem Trying to write yourself a rifle Maybe sharpen up a song To fight the tanks and drones of you being alone Lyrics

4 I wish I never looked, I wish I never touched I wish that I could stop loving you so much Cause I’m the only one that's trying to keep us together When all of the signs say that I should forget her I wish you weren’t the best, the best I ever had I wish that the good outweighed the bad Cause it’ll never be over, until you tell me it's over These battle scars, don’t look like they’re fading Don’t look like they’re ever going away They ain't never gonna change These battle (x2)

5 Lyrics (And just leave then) You shouldn't have but you said it (And I hope you never come back) It shouldn't have happened but you let it Now you're down on the ground screaming medic The only thing that comes is the post-traumatic stresses Shields, body armors and vests Don't properly work, that's why you're in a locker full of hurt The enemy within and all the fires from your friends The best medicine is to probably just let her win

6 Lyrics I wish I couldn't feel, I wish I couldn't love I wish that I could stop cause it hurts so much And I’m the only one that's trying to keep us together When all of the signs say that I should forget her I wish you weren’t the best, the best I ever had I wish that the good outweighed the bad Cause it’ll never be over, until you tell me it's over These battle scars, don’t look like they’re fading Don’t look like they’re ever going away They ain't never gonna change These battle (x2)

7 Lyrics Cause you've set me on fire I’ve never felt so alive, yeah Hoping wounds heal, but it never does That's because you're at war with love And I’m at the point of breaking And it’s impossible to shake it See, you hoped the wound heals, but it never does That's cause you're at war with love Hope it heals, but it never does That's cause you're at war with love!

8 Lyrics These battle scars, don’t look like they’re fading Don’t look like they’re ever going away They ain't never gonna change These battle (x4)

9 Speaker is... Since the song is sang from a mans point of view and a woman is mentioned ("When all of the signs say that I should forget her") I believe that a man has been through a rough patch with his girlfriend. Whatever she did, it was wrong and clearly left an impact or battle scars on him.

10 Interpretation Never let a woman ruin me But I feel like ruins ruin me Arrow holes that never close from cupid on a shooting spree Feeling stupid cause I know it ain't no you and me But when you're trying to beat the odds up Been trying to keep your nods up and you know that you should know And let her go but the fear of the unknown The fear of the unknown is the reason he continues to stay around. He has been hurt but it's all he really knows.

11 Interpretation Holding another lover strong sends you back into the zone With no Tom Hanks to bring you home A lover not a fighter on the frontline with a poem Trying to write yourself a rifle Maybe sharpen up a song To fight the tanks and drones of you being alone The speaker also fears being alone. Even though he's broken over this situation he still technically has someone.

12 Interpretation I wish I never looked, I wish I never touched I wish that I could stop loving you so much Cause I’m the only one that's trying to keep us together When all of the signs say that I should forget her I wish you weren’t the best, the best I ever had I wish that the good outweighed the bad Cause it’ll never be over, until you tell me it's over The speaker regrets getting himself into this mess and for not listening to common sense. He also has a hard time of letting go.

13 Interpretation These battle scars, don’t look like they’re fading Don’t look like they’re ever going away They ain't never gonna change These battle Whatever was done to this man it clearly left a serious impact on him. Such an impact, that he's not just going to forget about and move on from.

14 The whole song in itself is a metaphor because throughout the song it refers to a relationship as a battle. In a relationship, you don't actually go through a war and when something terrible happens you don't physically have a scar from it. Metaphor

15 Repetition "I wish I never looked. I wish I never touched. I wish that I could stop loving you so much." "I wish..." is used multiple times during the song to stress how much the speaker wishes things were different. He wishes that the good outweighed the bad. I think he also wished that he could move on from whatever it was that happened between them.

16 Hyperbole "Could you set me on fire..." The speaker uses exaggeration because he wants to emphasize how much hurt he has gone through and that being set on fire would be like putting him out of his misery. Using this hyperbole, it does an intense job of getting his point across.

17 Why I chose this song... Battle Scars can relate to so many different issues in relationships. Whether it's infidelity, lying, abuse, falling out of love, or just opposites attracting; relationships are never easy. This song expresses the hurt that one could feel from going through a tough situation. For example, if someone cheats on you you're not just going to forget about it. It'll stick with you.
