The Story Behind TobyMac's "Scars"


TobyMac has just released his new album The Elements.  This brand new 11 track album that is one of his most personal offerings to date. One of the songs closest to the singer-songwriter is "Scars," which is dedicated to his son Truett, who, like his father, is a musician.

"You, you're are not alone/ We've all been there/ Scars come with livin'" TobyMac sings in the chorus of the song about his eldest child. "Now you won't take my phone calls/ You won't text me back at all/ I just wanna see you/ I can't stand to see you gone."

In a recent interview with Digital Journal, TobyMac explained why "Scars," the third track on the album, is his favorite.

"'Scars' is deeply personal and for me, it is about my son. He is 20 years old and he left home and he is doing his own thing now," the artist revealed. "It's also about watching him go through tough times and get cut and bruised."

"Watching people you love go through hard things is tough, and I want people to know that they are not alone," he said.
