11. Scum Sweetheart

Don't Censor Me
by Audio Adrenaline



 

We walk hand in hand 'til life does us part
me and the world my scum sweetheart
We met long ago with a flirt and a stare
together ever since a lethal love affair
I tried to get out to get up and go
I was afraid of the fall the vertigo

You made me suffer guilt was your game
you had control of what I became
A rotten romance if I'd stayed I'd die
t'was a fond farewell when I said goodbye
Now I'm free on solid ground
no more of you pushing me around me around

CHORUS
You're my scum sweetheart
You're the world you broke my heart
You're my scum sweetheart
You're the world you broke my heart

You're the world full of lies
how could I think of compromise?
It seems to me a solitaire affair
I was in need but you didn't care
Please stay away heartbreaker
you're not gonna be my soul taker
I've got friends that want to see you
they'd stay away if they had a clue

It's a black heart that I see
it's evil it'sbad and all in between
Whatever it is I'll do my part
to keep you from being their scum sweetheart

Words and Music by Mark Stuart, Barry Blair, Will McGinnis, and Bob Herdman. Produced by Steve Griffith. 1993 Up In The Mix Music (BMI)

Behind the Song:
"A lot of people ask us if [this song] is about and old girlfriend or some kind of relationship like that gone bad, well this song is about someone who's fallen in love with the world and the things of the world. You need to give your heart not to world but to the One who created all things and that is Jesus Christ. Don't get caught up in what the world has to offer you because Jesus has a lot more." - Mark Stuart (Audio Adrenaline) *edited version of Stuart's explanation from the band's 1995 live album, Live Bootleg
