Scar Upon Your Face

When I woke up this morning
I felt something in my skin
I saw your hair upon the pillow
And the cleft upon your chin
Your eyes opened and they found me
Like a synonym for grace
And your wild beauty was revealed
In the scar upon your face

When I woke up this morning
And I heard you say that word to me
You looked upon your Jewish lover
And you called him “habibi”
I know there is a future
I think you’re proof that that’s the case
I saw it on your lips
And on the scar upon your face

When I woke up this morning
I saw the ring upon your hand
Your only piece of evidence
From a long-forsaken land
It takes me to a village
In another time and place
Like the depth within your eyes
And the scar upon your face

When I woke up this morning
Lost somehow in the deep
I recalled the sound
Of you crying in your sleep
Crying for your mama
And this savage human race
I could only kiss your cheek
And the scar upon your face

“Scar Upon Your Face” appears on the 2005 CD, For the Moment.

It’s a love song.
