Papa Roach – Scars lyrics
I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
My weakness is that I care too much
My scars remind me that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

Drunk and I'm feeling down
And I just wanna be alone
I'm pissed 'cause you came around
Why don't you just go home
Cause you channel all your pain
And I can't help you fix yourself
Your making me insane
All I can say is

I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
My weakness is that I care 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 advise
I saw you going down
But you never realized
That your 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
My weakness is that I care 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 shouldn't ever came around
Why don't you just go home?
Cause your drowning in the water
And I tried to grab your hand
And 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
My weakness is that I care 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
My weakness is that I care too much and
Our scars remind us that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

    Its simply an amazing song. I know its basically about trying to help someone who wont accept it, and in the end hurting yourself, but. To me, it just seems a bit different, when I listen to the chorus. Its like you keep hurting yourself by giving your heart, and end up picking yourself back up and hiding it. And you're always hurt because you care too much. And you wish to forget the past. But you see the scars, and they remind you. Its all so real. But, I guess everyone relates differently.

    This song helped me grow recently. One of my best friends decided that it would be best for both of us if we didn't talk for a while, and it completely broke me down. When I heard this song after that conversation, I understood what he was really doing. It was a period of my life that was so. Over dramatic, with a lot of problems. All throughout our friendship, he was trying to help me out of that position, but I wouldn't ever let him. I realized how much all my suffering hurt him and why he gave up, and now the situation makes so much more sense.

    The song to me means that the person singing it is trying to help someone who doesn't believe they need or want help. He cares but because this person doesn't want help, it hurts him to see whats going on so much that he tries not to care. It seems like the singer has gone through a similiar situlation and is constantly reminded of it because of the mental or physical scars left behind.

    Scars. Scars are memories that stay with you forever. You don't always have to see them for them to be there. Some that you can see have great meanings. The ones that are on the inside also have great meanings. Such as someone saying "that scarred my life forever. " you don't have to see the scar. Example 2: "this scar on my arm is from when i cut myself. Man, i'm so depressed. Someone please help me! "

    Its simply about how his girlfriend is a drunk, and he keeps trying to help her and only ends up hurting himslef again and again, yup we've all covered that. I can really relate to this song. Me and my ex had been talking alot he just broke up with her and he still likes her he just thought it was best for them both, and his brother died, so I try to help, then we end up going out again, which was my mistake cuz guess what he breaks my heart again. I try to help it makes me happy for a couple days, but that little bit of happiness wont make up for the amount of pain that follows the break up. I just hope what goes around comes round and he gets hit by a bus or something :)

    This has a meaning to me with my ex. I loved him so much, and I found out he was doing drugs, I tried so hard to help him, and be there for him, because I really cared and wanted him to get better, but in the end he just brought me down with him, and I sacrificed so much for him, but eventually I realized I need to move on with my own life, and I can't help someone who does not want the help,.

    This song describes a relationship that could have already failed, but he continues to feel the need to try and help her as she begins to go down a dark road herself. His help is of no use to her as she doesn't realize how much he cares for her. This ends up hurting him because he can't let go of her. She continues to put him through pain and misery because she won't acknowledge that he cares about her. He must move on with his life but the circumstances bear down on him.
