Scars Burn


I'll walk away
Hoping I'll stay the same
But the visions of you
I'll remember
They're implanted in my brain

I walk back to where I started
Hoping that now that we've parted
I'll forget
What I saw you do
But I don't
And now I'm broken-hearted

I can turn my back
But what I've seen
Is now in my mind
I can start again
But what I know
Is forever mine
Though I can change my ways
That time will never return
Though I can close my eyes
Memories flash and scars burn

I'll pick a new way
Hoping I've chosen right
But as I'm walking forward
I'm walking into the night

I can't go back
To the person I was
I can't change the past
Nor can restore the love
I let my chance go into the wind

I can turn my back
But what I've seen
Is now in my mind
I can start again
But what I know
Is forever mine
Though I can change my ways
That time will never return
Though I can close my eyes
Memories flash and scars burn

I tried to change the future
So I changed my life
If I were computer
I could reboot
Turn black to white

I'd like to start over
I'd like to start again
But I'm stuck in this forever
I've got my past
Though I pretend

I can turn my back
But what I've seen
Is now in my mind
I can start again
But what I know
Is forever mine
Though I can change my ways
That time will never return
Though I can close my eyes
Memories flash and scars burn

They'll always burn
