Battlescars is a song written and performed by the almost-mainstream American band Ozma and appears on their 2nd album Rock and Roll Part Three (2000). I think it is one of their best songs, and just bleeded emotion when I saw it live. Lyrics:

Of all the shooting stars I knew
I never felt at ease with anyone but you
don't ever wonder where I go
remember that the grass still grows beneath the snow

When everything around turns blue
just fall asleep and wake when it's all through

There's battlescars on all my guitars but I still come out here and play

And now I've lost your touch again
I know I'm only one in 20,000 men
I promise not to let you go
just close your eyes and sleep right through the falling snow

When I finally wash ashore
I'm coming back to kiss the girl I kissed before
of all the shooting stars I knew
I never fell for anyone but you

there's battlescars on all my guitars but I still come out here and play
there's battlescars on my face and my arms but you still kiss me everyday
there's battlescars on all my guitars but I still come out everyday
there's battlescars on my face and my arms but you still kiss me anyway

(and driving home from your house at night I blink and make a hard right the tape you gave me flies across the dash and slaps me in the face)
