I lived over at Kenmore and Montrose in a shitty little studio apartment across the street from St Mary of the Lake. I got the apartment solely because I could see the steeple of the church. I thought that if by some way I was near a church, or something divine, if through osmosis it might come into my life. At some point you gotta stop carrying around that which weighs you down. That the scars of your past should be left exactly there. They were scars from another life.

Lyrics

Scars From Another Life


Hallelujah...the choir they all sang
As i walked by St Mary’s in a misty rain
T’was so long ago....I think it was yesterday
I was so down...i had completely lost my way
When i hit Broadway i began to realize
That all they are, are scars from another life

Percy drank his coffee then said to me
I’ve been thinking bout where the river meets the sea
I’ve been pickin’ poison fruit from a troubled tree
Because sometimes it seems your past won’t let you be
You can kill it with a gun if you do it right
Or run that far from the scars from another life

Singin’ Hey La Hey La Hey La Hey
Scars from another life

I’d been blessed with love but threw it away
Now i wait for it to return everyday
And say “you’re forgiven boy....you deserve another chance”
You’ll wrap your arms around me and to Sinatra we will dance
“ One more for the road” in a holy light
Won’t you sway with me babe...with the scars from another life

Singin’ Hey La Hey La Hey La Hey
Scars from another life
Singin’ Hey La Hey La Hey La Hey
Scars from another life
Don’t run away , they’re scars from another life
Don’t be afraid, they’re scars from another life
Won’t you sway with me babe....

I smoke these haunted memories every night
While i think about the scars from another life
