View Full Version : This Scar

10-07-2008, 12:04 PM
Hey forum!

I have been coming to this forum (mostly as an observer) for as LONG as I can remember. I would like to say since I was 15 or 16 (and I'm now 25), has it been around that long?

I am a singer/songwriter, and finally 8 years after my surgery I've written a song about my journey with scoliosis. It's still very new (only a week or so old) but last night my brother Brent & I made a you tube video of it and I posted it this morning. I would love for you - all my friends, that I feel share a special bond through our scoliosis - to take a listen to it.

I really hope you like the lyrics and can identify with it, it's called "This Scar."

How beautiful! That brought me to tears!
Would you mind if I shared it with friends on my blog?

Very nice! My wife loved it too!

I do have one question though... Are you going to update the song for every year the scar gets older? :D

I loved it! You have an amazing voice, and I love the piano too. I liked this verse. It's fitting.

With this scar,
That represents my life
A good old fashioned fight
The willingness to survive
This scar
Says it's okay to be scared
It's okay if you're scared
But be prepared

I LOVED it; thank you very much; I needed to hear that right now. SNIFF....

OH YAY. :)

I was a little apprehensive posting it, but thanks for all your lovely words! I'm so happy that you like it.

Qikdraw - I asked myself that question, I guess everytime I perform it I can update it as the years go by! :)

mmw - Please, share it with anyone you want!

I have been posting videos on youtube for a few months, and never had one with so many views so quickly.... exciting. Thanks everyone!

Dear Lisa Nicole,

I saw the lyrics of this song on your blog and loved them! How much more powerful to hear them sung by you.

I appreciate your sharing them with the people who would find it the most meaningful.

Are you okay if I post the lyrics (crediting you) and a link to the video on MY blog?

A vocalist really has to put herself 'out there' and I admire the way you've done that!

Thanks for the lovely words.

Good to hear from you Louisse! And Lisanicole, I haven't posted because I haven't gotten a chance to listen to it yet... I have dial-up internet and that just doesn't cut it... but I am looking forward to hearing your song and beautiful voice. :)
