My favorite so far... powerful, just what I need this weekend. I absolutely need to learn how to play this on the piano- I love the little tail on the end of the melody. Lyrically, it's one of her more descriptive, vivid songs.

I couldn't find another version of this, so I transcribed it. Had a lot of trouble with the segment she was belting out, but overall I think it's close. Feel free to suggest alternatives where appropriate:

Battle Scars

What do you say, just for today, we'll pretend to be together
Act like we were just for today, like this is forever
Burn ourselves to ash then fall apart

Can we get past that we won't last, and have a conversation
There is no need to hide away, bleed and cold interpretations
I feel everything you feel so far.

We are meant to make it once
And now we're holding tight
For one more night with battle scars
We try to turn back time

Startled and touched, wanting so much, to say my full confession
But I shut up, clenching my lips from showing my obsession
I need a win but hate our unsaid words

We are meant to make it once
And we're holding tight
For one more night with battle scars
We try to turn back time

Did you ever know how much you loved me
Did I ever know how much I wanted you
Burning like a car in my head
Burning up ?? our new lies

We are meant to make it once
And now we're holding tight
For one more night
For one more night
For one more night
For one more night with battle scars, we try to turn back time
Try to turn back time
Try to turn back...

This is probably my 2nd favorite of the DON b-sides released so far. Thank you, CharMar for yet another great song! Cool

Thanks Jules! We survived the hurricane fine- I spent 5+ hours bagging lunches for the 1100+ people we had on campus in the Red Cross center before Irene hit. Or house got tree branches down, but not much else to report. Hope everything stayed dry where you were.

If anyone has edits to my lyrics, feel free to PM me and I'll edit the above lyrics post!

Cha cha cha. I am having SERIOUS CharMar tour withdrawal. At least I got to see Berlin two weeks ago, and I'll be going to crash Rachael Sage's concert in Philly next month.
