Scars (1927)

Maybe I'm a little distant Lost deep in poetry and rhyme Sometimes love defies expression Can't find the words Can't get 'em out Sometimes I wanna tell you how I'd be Without you sleeping by my side tonight I'd be counting scars So here I am, no words to fight with Naked in the open Baring my soul for you to see I know at times that I frustrate you I don't mean to Without your love I'd rather die Sometimes the world seems dark and grey And I would wither without your shining light I'd be counting scars To live without your love would surely tear me apart And I would sooner be a prisoner than a millionaire And see you walk away Yeah I'd sooner be expired than alone I'd be counting scars Your mama said you'd better leave
