Tobymac Scars

Tobymac Scars [Music + Lyrics]

Gospel rapper Tobymac has released a brand new track called “Scars” and a performance video. Tobymac Scars is the latest single off his soon-to-debut album, The Elements, debut on the 12th of October. The seven-time Grammy award-winning gospel singer and songwriter drops the track after releasing his fastest charting single of his career  ” I just need U.”

Tobymac ScarsWhere did the idea for Tobymac Scars come from? TobyMac claims it was born from the fact that he was a father. “For the very first time, in all my years of life, I was able to send ships out from the harbor. Since our family and our home has always been the harbor. People I love most are now dealing with the pain and struggle and the dangers of this crazy world. I’m conscious of the wounds incurred from life’s experiences; however, sometimes, we try to shield these things from those we cherish and our children. When they get out and face the real world, it’s a painful experience. I wrote this song for my son. I wanted him to know that I was there for him and that God would be there to help him. Therefore, lift your head, my son, and look where the source of your assistance comes from.”

TobyMac stated to Billboard that he “had a few people in mind” when he composed the track, but he began to focus on his son and explaining to Truett that life could throw heavy things at certain times. “I wanted him to know that he’s not alone when the world might get the best of him from time to time,” TobyMac continued. “When he looks up, and he’s got some scars, I wanted him to know that we all face those things and that he’s not alone in it.”

Lyrics to Tobymac Scars [Music + Lyrics]

[Intro]
No, no
Yeah I’m
Just beepin’ right now
I gotta go
Hey

Tobymac Scars [Verse 1]
Had you on my mind
I had a little time
I know we kinda overdue (Overdue, overdue)
Turnin’ back the pages
To our younger days, yeah
I can still imagine you (Imagine you, imagine you)

Tobymac Scars [Verse 2]
Boomin’ like the thunder
Chasin’ life with wonder
With fire that could light a room
Bottom kinda fell out
Waited for the rebound
But you never made a move

[Pre-Chorus]
When life cuts so deep
Try and remember

[Chorus]
You, you’re not alone
We’ve all been there (Been there, been there)
Scars come with livin’
You, you’re not alone
We’ve all been there (Been there, been there, oh), oh
So lift your head, lift your head
Lift your head to where your help comes from
Yeah, you, you’re not alone
We’ve all been there
Scars come with livin’ (With livin’, with livin’)

Tobymac Scars [Verse 3]
Life ain’t got no sequel
We all broken people
The only road to found is lost (Found is lost, found is lost)
Oversimplifyin’ (oversimplifyin’)
Ain’t no shame in tryin’ (Ain’t no shame in trying)
Passion never counts the cost (Counts the cost)

Tobymac Scars [Verse 4]
Now you won’t take my phone calls
You won’t text me back at all
I just want to see you
I can’t stand to see you gone
Yesterday I missed you
Yesterday I played your song
I’m oversimplifyin’, I’m oversimplifyin’
(I’m oversimplifying, I’m oversimplifying, I’m oversimplifying)

[Pre-Chorus]
But try and remember

[Chorus]
You, you’re not alone
We’ve all been there (Been there, been there)
Scars come with livin’
You, you’re not alone
We’ve all been there (Been there, been there, oh), oh
So lift your head, lift your head
Lift your head to where your help comes from
Yeah, you, you’re not alone
We’ve all been there
Scars come with livin’

[Post-Chorus]
Scars come, scars come, oh, scars come
Oh, scars come with livin’
Scars come, scars come, oh, scars come
Oh, scars come with livin’

[Bridge]
It doesn’t matter who you are (Who you are)
This world gon’ leave some battle scars (Battle scars)
It doesn’t matter who you are (Who you are)
This world gon’ leave some battle scars (Battle scars)
It doesn’t matter who you are (Who you are)
This world gon’ leave some battle scars (Battle scars)
It doesn’t matter who you are (Who you are)
This world gon’ leave some battle scars (Ooh)

[Chorus]
You, you’re not alone
We’ve all been there
Scars come with livin’
You, you’re not alone, you’re not alone
So lift your head up (Scars come, scars come) (Head up)
To where your help comes from
Lift your head up (Scars come, scars come) (Head up, head up)
Oh, scars come with livin’
Lift your head up (Scars come, scars come), (Lift your head, lift your head, lift your hea-hea-head)
To where your help comes from
Lift your head up (Scars come, scars come), (Lift your head, lift your head, lift your head)
Oh, scars come with livin’
Lift your head up (Scars come, scars come) (Head up, head up)

[Outro]
It doesn’t matter who you are (Who you are)
This world gon’ leave some battle scars (Battle scars)
Lift your head up (Scars come, scars come), (Lift your head, lift your head, lift your head)
It doesn’t matter who you are (Who you are)
This world gon’ leave some battle scars (Battle scars)
It doesn’t matter who you are (Who you are)
This world gon’ leave some battle scars
