Carly Simon Lyrics

"Scar" lyrics


A grey day in February
Some flecks of white, but mostly brown
Purple surprises riding in on a nerve
Begins to excite you before it settles down

Itґs after the knives and the sutures and needles
Iґm left with an arrow that points at my heart

I call it the seat of my sentimental sorrow
Gone seems to be one of the sum of my parts

And the night is cold
As the coldest nights are
Thereґs a wise woman
She comes from an evening star
She says: Look for the signs
You wonґt have to look far
Lead with your spirit and follow
Follow your scar

A man I knew once said he wanted to see me
I said Iґd been sick but was on the mend
I told him a few of the overall details
He said: Thatґs too bad
And heґs never called me again

What a gift in disguise that poor little puppy
So scared of misfortune and always on guard
A big man will love you
Even more when youґre hurtinґ
And a really big man
Loves a really good scar

Cause the dawn breaks
And itґs breaking your heart
Thereґs a wise woman
She sits at the end of the bar
She says: Look for the signs
You wonґt have to look far
Lead with your spirit and follow
Follow your scar

A grey day in February
Some flecks of white, but mostly brown
The world has tilted but
The world has expanded
And the world has turned
My world upside down

Cause the night is warm and all full of stars
Thereґs a wise woman
Sheґs moved right into my heart
She says: Look for the signs
You wonґt have to look far
Lead with your spirit and follow
Follow
Follow your scar

English translation of Gaelic:

Run with the red deer
And sing with the wind
The magic lasts
And meaning will follow
The scar is God given
As a sign for your life
Strength from your ancestors
And through your own mouth
Strength from memory
Like a tree on the wind
Show me your scar
And I will make it better
