Example - Battle Scars lyrics

[Intro: Violet Verigo]
There was once a love that left me blue
There was once a love I wish I never knew
But I'm getting stronger every day
So blow those clouds away
Away, so I can see the sun return once more

[Verse 1: Example, Violet Verigo]
Okay, okay, then you say whatever
Okay, okay, you think you’re, oh, so clever
Okay, okay, then you say whatever
Okay, okay, you think you're, oh, so clever
This is not the train I thought it was
Not the brain I thought it was
I'm on a train of thought now like
Fuck, oh, yeah, of course it was
Of course it was the other day
I chatted to my conscience
Didn’t know I had one
I thought it was all nonsense
Turns out that I'm a decent man, a decent person
So many people that I've hurt they all need reimbursing
I thought I'd drawn the curtain on a couple matters
Hearts are crumpled, shattered (I wish I never knew)
Thinkin' 'bout it now I think I've used a couple bladders

[Chorus: Example, Violet Verigo]
Lost a couple battles in the past
Sorry, doesn't matter if you aren’t
Only really matters if you is
Only really matters if you give (Blow those clouds away)
Give into yourself and take the hit, ayy

[Verse 2: Example]
Basically face it
I only race against myself
Chase it, and chase it, you’re only fuckin' up your health
Taste it, embrace it, you’ve always been so complacent
I'm always fighting everybody like I'm Jason Statham

[Chorus: Example, Violet Verigo]
Lost a couple battles in the past
Sorry, doesn't matter if you aren’t
Only really matters if you is
Only really matters if you give (I wish I never knew)
Give into yourself and take the hit, ayy

[Bridge: Violet Verigo]
There was once a love that left me blue
There was once a love I wish I never knew
But I'm getting stronger every day
So blow those clouds away
Away, so I can see the sun return once more

[Verse 3: Example, Violet Verigo]
Whatever tickles your fancy
Buy a ticket to France
Just keep your dick in pants
See what's converging on some virgins like he's big Richard Branson
Bring you the ransom
Maybe I will sing you a sad song
And get with the bed sport
I'm handsome, less talk
We can cheers (Cheers), you can call me TED talk (Ayy)
Dancing, the streets will be dancing
Holding my hand, holding your waist as old as I taste (I wish I never knew)
Wow, I'm sending it all over the place
I've fallen from grace
Fall from the stars and land on my arse
Regretting every time that I've been falling out bars
Prepare me the bill
I'm scared of it still
You're there with the kill (Blow those clouds away)
Your heart is made of metal like [?] still
It's all in my head
I've fallen again
I'm glad I settled down was getting kind of cold in my bed, ayy

[Pre-Chorus: Example]
No complaining
Moving up and down like an ocean, baby
Got that magic potion, lady
Mad Max Fury
Oh, so maybe, oh, so crazy

[Chorus: Example, Violet Verigo]
Lost a couple battles in the past
Sorry, doesn't matter if you aren't
Only really matters if you is
Only really matters if you give (I wish I never knew)
Give into yourself and take the hit, ayy

[Post-Chorus: Example, Violet Verigo]
Lost a couple battles in the past (There was once a love that left me blue)
Sorry, doesn't matter if you aren't
Only really matters if you is
Only really matters if you give (There was once a love I wish I never knew)
Give into yourself and take the hit, ayy
Lost a couple battles in the past
But I'm getting stronger everyday
So blow those clouds away
Ayy
Lost a couple battles in the past, ayy
Away, so I can see the sun return once more

[Outro]
Ladies and gentlemen, that there was a young man by the name of Elliot Gleave
You'll be hearing a lot more from him soon, really quick round of applause
Yeah, that's Violet there on the wonderful vocals and the House Band, ladies and gentlemen
