We All Have Scars

Every struggle, every trial and every situation builds us into the person God has created us to be. Tom speaks with heart about where he’s been and gives us a glimpse that we are not alone in this hard life.

I really, REALLY liked this one. We all love your social/political songs that start convos, but your songs about your journey, humanity, humility, humbleness are also equally powerful & enjoyable.

Wow! I felt every word, every emotion, this one hits home for me. Every scar is proof that I went through it, I survived it and now I’m here to show everyone that their scars whether mentally or physically can be used as there strength to keep pushing, to keep surviving, because they are beautiful, they are strong and they matter.

Scars Lyrics – Tom MacDonald

I don’t remember how I got all these scars
But I know I lived a hell of a life
I can’t remember how I made it this far
But I know it was a hell of a fight
Could’ve been some bones in a coffin stone
Drinkin’ vodka, locked up with the bros, causin’ problems, broke
At the bottom, you know that I
Got a lot of marks under these clothes
Should’ve killed me, somehow I survived

These tattoos on my arms
Hide from you all the scars
These tattoos on my arms
Hide from you all the scars

I don’t remember how I ended up here
But I know I prolly should’ve died
I don’t remember why I cried all those tears
But I know that I turned out alright
I know the people wanted me dead
I lost all my friends, was runnin’ from the cops
Gettin’ bread, was dark in my head, you know that I have
Seen a lot of things in all of my years
But I’m thankful for this crazy life
Every single scar and every single scrape
Every bruise and tattoo along the way
Tells a little story that I can’t explain
Because the words escape me, but the marks remain
They won’t ever fade, and they can’t be erased
They made me who I am, and I am not ashamed
Every bump and scratch and every drop of blood
Prove how far I’ve came

These tattoos on my arms
Hide from you all the scars
These tattoos on my arms
Hide from you all the scars

I have had my scars longer than most of my friends
Crashed a couple cars, put some stitches in my legs
Looked up at the stars, and all I can say is “Thanks”
Recovery was hard, but it made me who I am
All these ugly battle scars complete me
They’re reminders of the demons who tried their best to defeat me
They don’t look so good in photos, but my struggles ain’t beneath me
And these tattoos ain’t for nothin’, this is physical graffiti
Every broken bone, all the sticks and stones
And the moments when I felt so alone
Every single tear and like a million beers
That I only drank so I could try to cope
Every bloody nose and all the muddy clothes
When I was in the dirt down inside a hole
Every single scuff and every single scab
Made me who I am

These tattoos on my arms
Hide from you all the scars
These tattoos on my arms
Hide from you all the scars
These tattoos on my arms
Hide from you all the scars
