“Battle Scars” by Guy Sebastian
(feat. Lupe Fiasco)

[Intro: Lupe Fiasco]
Hope the wound heals but it never does
That’s cause you’re at war with love
You’re at war with love, yeah

[Hook: Guy Sebastian]
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…

[Verse 1: Lupe Fiasco]
Never let a wound ruin me
But I feel like ruin’s wooing me
Arrow holes, they 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 front line with a poem
Trying to write yourself a rifle
Maybe sharpen up a stone
To fight the tanks and drones of you being alone

[Pre-hook: Guy Sebastian]
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

[Hook: Guy Sebastian]
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 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…

[Verse 2: Lupe Fiasco]
(Then just leave)
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 it win

[Pre-hook: Guy Sebastian]
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

[Hook: Guy Sebastian]
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 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…

[Bridge: Guy Sebastian & Lupe Fiasco]
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!

[Hook: Guy Sebastian]
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 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 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…
On the 13-1-2013 I uploaded a drawing package on my iPhone, iPad and MacPro and taught myself how to draw using a digital medium for the first time. Over the past month i have done over 70 drawings and kept 65 of these.
I have used a stylus for most but sometimes my finger as well. Trying to create the most organic and natural lines. I have not left my traditional mediums of ink, acrylic, water colour pencil, collage, mixed media but am exploring with excitement another medium i can use to create from the constant creative thoughts that dance through my mind.
