Scar

He left a card, a bar of soap and
A scrubbing brush next to a note
That said "use these down to your bones"
And before I knew I had shiny skin
And it felt easy being clean like him
I thought "this one knows better than I do"
 
A triangle trying to squeeze through a circle
He tried to cut me so I'd fit
 
And doesn't that sound familiar?
Doesn't that hit too close to home?
Doesn't that make you shiver
The way things could've gone?
And doesn't it feel peculiar when
Everyone wants a little more?
And so that I do remember to never go that far
Could you leave me with a scar?
 
So the next one came with a bag of treats
She smelled like sugar and spoke like the sea
And she told me don't trust them, trust me
Then she pulled at my stitches one by one
Looked at my insides clicking
Her tongue and said
"This will all have to come undone"
 
A triangle trying to squeeze through a circle
She tried to blunt me so I'd fit
 
And doesn't that sound familiar?
Doesn't that hit too close to home?
Doesn't that make you shiver
The way things could have gone?
And doesn't it feel peculiar when
Everyone wants a little more?
And so that I do remember to never go that far
Could you leave me with a scar?
 
I think I realized just in time
Although my old self was hard to find
You can bathe me in your finest wine
But I'll never give you mine
'Cos I'm a little bit tired of
Fearing that I'll be the bad fruit nobody
Buys
 
Tell me, did you think we'd all dream the same?
And doesn't that sound familiar?
Doesn't that hit too close to home?
Doesn't that make you shiver
The way things could have gone?
 
And doesn't it feel peculiar when
Everyone wants a little more?
And so that I do remember to never go that far
Could you leave me with a scar?
Could you leave me with a scar?
 
Could you leave me with a scar?
 
Thanks!
