New Song: James Bay – Scars

Been browsing for new songs lately and stumbled upon this one. A 23 years old British singer-songwriter, James Bay. His voice reminds me of James Blunt a little bit, but with a bit of raspiness inside.

From all of his songs, I really-really like this one, Scars. Great melody and heavy-realistic lyrics. Something that, I think, most of us have gone through a few times. We got hurt or we hurt someone, it’s either of them. Yet, we’re still willing to stay and live through the scars for a better ‘next-time’.

Scars

You’re setting off, it’s time to go, the engine’s running
My mind’s lost, we always knew this day was coming
And now it’s more fright’ning than it’s ever gonna be
You’re miles away, I watch you on a red horizon
Your line’s heart, I would touch you on a storm sky
And I will always be listening for your laughter and your tears
And as soon as I can hold you once again
I won’t let go of you, I swear
We live through scars this time
But I’ve made up my mind
We can’t leave us behind
Anymore
Your hands are cold, your lips are turning blue, you’re shaking
This fragile heart, so heavy in my chest, is breaking
And in the dark, you try to make a pay phone call to me
But you’re miles away, your ship breaking up
You’re on your own
It’s hard to take, I need an hour just to say hello
And I can’t make the truth of this work out for you or me
And for all the pennies in your pocket
We barely get a second just to speak
We live through scars this time
But I’ve made up my mind
We can’t leave us behind
Anymore
We’ll have to hurt for now
But next time, there’s no doubt
Cuz I can’t go without you
Anymore
Oh no no
Oh oh?
We live through scars this time
But I’ve made up my mind
We can’t leave us behind
Anymore
We’ll have to hurt for now
But next time, there’s no doubt
Cuz I can’t go without you
