Beautiful Scars on Youtube



Here is a song that was written with Cheryl Teal. I had a set of lyrics that I wrote in about May this year that I just couldn't seem to put music to. I sent them to Cheryl and she came up with the music.

The song is about growing up in Zimbabwe in that war and how in that war and how everything that happens in your life adds to what ends up as YOU. And each of us are made up of millions of beautiful scars.

Realtracks are:
RealTracks in song: ~684:Bass, Electric, PopHalfNotesSync Ev 120
RealDrums in Song: NashvilleEven8^1-a:Sidestick, HiHat , b:Snare, Ride
RT887:Piano, Acoustic, Solo-Accompaniment FolkPopPrairie Ev
RT2334:String Quartet, Rhythm PopChamber Ev 085
RT1856:Cello, Background PopCountry Ev 085

Lead vocal is me and harmonies are Cheryl and some BIABettes

Lyrics are:
Born in '64 'neath the shadow of a war
Fear was written on my page
Silent spaces silent prayer waiting for the news
the names of the
unlucky few

Beautiful scars and Jagged imperfections
Hidden down in the pocket
of a coat I don't wear
Beautiful scars and Careful redirection
Covered over in colours
A sketch no longer there
Covered over in colours
A sketch no longer there

My past with tales Retold stacked wooden Russian dolls
I know if I take a look
Pressed in a dust poetry book
Show up in print I am
a frame I'm living in

Beautiful scars and Jagged imperfections
Hidden down in the pocket
of a coat I don't wear
Beautiful scars and Careful redirection
Covered over in colours
A sketch no longer there
Covered over in colours
A sketch no longer there

Through the chaos and tears
hands reach across the years
Never knowing whats in store
It's not finished yet
There's nothing to regret
And there will be a thousand more

Beautiful scars and Jagged imperfections
Hidden down in the pocket
of a coat I don't wear
Beautiful scars and Careful redirection
Covered over in colours
A sketch no longer there
Covered over in colours
A sketch no longer there

Beautiful song. Love the lyrics specially 'I'm a frame I'm living in'. Very nice vibrato in your voice and the backing and harmony offer just the right support. Love this one. Cheers.

Astounding.
You two are a wonderful team. And then the harmonies...marvelous!

My mother in law's sister was caught up in that war, she would have loved to have heard that song before she passed.

hats of to both of you

There's a Joan Baez / Janis Ian quality to your voice that is hauntingly perfect for this song... incredible.

Guenter, Floyd, Al and Lawrence. Thank you all so much for your comments. I am so glad you liked it.

I suppose the song ought to be poignant since it is about growing up in that war that cost so many people their young sons. The boys (including my brother) were called up to do national service straight out of school. 17 years old, still wet behind the ears and had to witness such atrocities. I guess I was lucky to be female. I shudder to think what those people are going through in the Middle East. There are adults that have only known about living in a war.

Cheryl is quite amazing at putting the music to lyrics. It is an area I really struggle with. I get stuck on a particular song that influenced me in the lyrics and can’t seem to get it out of my head. So it is nice to pass the lyrics onto somebody who doesn’t know what song I was thinking of when I wrote the lyrics.

Its all been said and we agree with it all....We'll only add that listening to and watching this reminded us of how thankful we are to live in relative peace. It's so sad that millions upon millions due to no fault of their own will never experience it.

Wonderful song.

Hi Josie,

I'm a bit late getting to this one. I listened to it a couple of weeks ago but didn't have time to leave a comment. Then it slipped past me! Arrgh!

Thankfully I made it back it time.

I have to compliment you and Cheryl on a very solid write. I love the melody and the way it captures the essence of the lyrics. Great production, too.

All the best,
Noel

P.S. I enjoyed the vocals and harmonies, too.
