"Without the Scars" Originally Written: 9/18/10 ©CMDonovann

Intro:

Can't you

Take a step, take a step back

Would you

Throw away, throw it all away

Please just

Put it down, let it go

You don't need this

Can you really go on like this forever?

Verse 1:

You think no one can see

How you ache inside

You think pain will set you free

But do you really want to die?

Chorus:

Take a step back from that ledge, girl

Do you know what you're doing?

Throw away those sleeping pills, girl

Don't you know I can save you?

Put down that pocket knife, girl

Don't you see that you're beautiful?

Without the scars

Verse 2:

You cry out silently

For a merciful end

You wanted to bleed

But you I will defend

Chorus:

Take a step back from that ledge, girl

Do you know what you're doing?

Throw away those sleeping pills, girl

Don't you know I can save you?

Put down that pocket knife, girl

Don't you see that you're beautiful?

Without the scars

Bridge:

Why don't you love yourself

as much as I do?

I'd give up everything for you

you know it is true

Chorus:

Take a step back from that ledge, girl

Do you know what you're doing?

Throw away those sleeping pills, girl

Don't you know I can save you?

Put down that pocket knife, girl

Don't you see that you're beautiful?

Without the scars

Chorus:

Take a step back from that ledge, girl

Do you know what you're doing?

Throw away those sleeping pills, girl

Don't you know I can save you?

Put down that pocket knife, girl

Don't you see that you're beautiful?

Without the scars
