Battle Scars

By: Guy Sebastian and Lupe Fiasco

lyrics
Lyrics

Don\'t look like they\'re ever going away

They ain\'t never gonna change

These battle...

Love...

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

lyrics1
Lyrics

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

lyrics2
Lyrics

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)

lyrics3
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

lyrics4
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)

lyrics5
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!

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)

speaker is
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.

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.

Interpretation

With no Tom Hanks to bring you home

A lover not a fighter on the frontline with a poem

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.

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.

interpretation3
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.

Metaphor

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.

repetition
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.

hyperbole
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.

why i chose this song
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.
