Scars Are Beautiful

I was listening to some Paul Brandt music today and was moved by the lyrics of his song, Scars Are Beautiful.  I had actually completely forgotten about this song until today.  I looked for a You-Tube video to accompany the words, but nothing was available.  I wish you could hear Paul Brandt sing the words, but for now you'll have to enjoy the lyrics as they are.

Scars are Beautiful
~Paul Brandt~

I've got this little scar that left it's mark
Down underneath my chin
From when I fell off my bike back when
I was just a kid

And oh, the pain and how I cried
And I still remember how it bled
I know I won't forget that time and what my daddy said

Don't cry, it'll get better
In time you'll soon forget it
You'll be fine right now it hurts some
But the healing hasn't happened yet
The pain won't always be there
And someday after the fall, your scrapes and scratches will remind you
Of the hurt you left behind you and you'll see
That scars are beautiful

Each scar is living proof and they tell the truth
About places that you've been
They're all roadmaps to life's lessons made
By sacrifice and sin
And you can let them bring you down
Or you can hold your head up high
Don't let the chance you took to fall
Keep you from the chance you take to try
