  • Do we make sense? I think we do
    In spite of everything that we've been through
    Oh, when you say black and I say white
    It's not about who's wrong
    As long as it feels right
    Don't think those stars won't align

    Under your scars I pray
    You're like a shooting star in the rain
    You're everything that feels like home to me, yeah
    Under your scars, I could live inside you time after time
    If you'd only let me live inside of mine
    Live inside of mine

    Wish you were here
    Right beside me
    So I could watch you sleep
    Hold your body closer, breathe you deep
    And everything feels broken
    When you're not next to me
    Would you still be you
    If we weren't we?

    Under your scars I pray
    You're like a shooting star in the rain
    You're everything that feels like home to me, yeah
    Under your scars, I could live inside you time after time
    If you'd only let me live inside of mine

    So hey, if you feel like coming down
    If you feel like coming around
    Just call my name out loud, na, na, na
    Hey, if you feel like coming down
    If you feel like coming around
    Just call my name out loud, na, na, na, hey

    Under your scars I pray
    You're like a shooting star in the rain
    You're everything that feels like home to me, yeah
    Under your scars, I could live inside you time after time
    If you'd only let me live inside of mine
    Live inside of mine Writer/s: Salvatore P. Erna

  • Julie Gammon from Salt Lake City, UtahI would love to be able to reach out to Sully Erna & now Lady Gaga and express my gratitude for this song. I honestly had no idea what the lyrics meant but I felt this song deep and this song saved my life more than one, two, or even three times. I can't believe after reading the meaning of the song and where it came from it's so incredible how a song can do that I was feeling more alone than I ever have in my entire life and I felt scarred and ruined. Today I'm still here and I make certain I listen to this song as loud and as many times as I can every day cuz it saved my soul and continues to do so every time I listen to it. Thank you so much for knowing the way it feels inside and sharing this song.
  • Cindy Robertson from Bristol VaThis song really hits home for me and my god daughter we say this is our song, but she has been clean off drugs for a year just came up and I'm so glad and thankful everyday that she is clean I love her as my own..
  • Tara G from Norristown PaMy fiancé and I would listen to the song every night he said this song was meant for us! Sadly he passed away October 23, 2021 he was fighting addiction he had a year clean on the 13th died 10 days later of a relapse and kills me but this song just reminds me so much of us!
  • Rain A. M. from Columbus, OhioSome days this song gets me to the next day, thank you, a forgotten soldier.
  • Buddy from P.a.After going through a divorce this year from someone who made the last few years of my life an absolute nightmare this song really spoke to me. I can only hope that my future will bring someone who is willing to live under my scars.
  • Anita Burks from Greenwood IndianaI have never heard of your group nor had I ever listened a good friend of mine played this song and when she did it was like it was me and how I felt I couldn't believe.
