Goy’s Scars

I saw your scars
And they really saddened me

In the melancholic summer heat
We met in the ring of love

Over the busy city streets
Heat hung like a veil

Three years before you
With nothing much to tell

On the night I met you
I felt like an empty shell

Hey-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh
Ain’t your heart in so much pain

Hey-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh
Ain’t your heart in so much pain

You Don’t like when I look in your eyes
You always have to turn away

There’s something you have to hide
Something that your eyes betray

I dream I can save you
And take you from this place

I miss your tender kisses
For only a brief escape

Hey-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh
Ain’t your heart in so much pain

Hey-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh
Ain’t your heart in so much pain

I saw your scars
And it really saddened me

I saw your scars
And it really saddened me
