We're gonna have a little fun we're gonna talk a little shit
We're gonna spend a little money, we gonna spend a lot of money
See we can't spend a little cause I don't got a little money I got a lot of money
So we got to spend a lot of money
Otis (Freestyle) by Ne-Yo

We get it, you’re rich.

Battle scars can refer to the pain you went through. If you ever self harmed or something. Those scars you made are never going to fade.

But when you're trying to beat the odds up
Been trying to keep your nods up and you know that you should know
And let her go
Battle Scars by Guy Sebastian (Ft. Lupe Fiasco)

If you want to have a better and positive future, then you should move on.

Play on the phrase “beat the odds” — you’re beating up the odds as if this is combat.

i.e. End the war (let it go), because you can’t win.

The wound heals but it never does
That’s cause you’re at war with love
You're at war with love, yeah
Battle Scars by Guy Sebastian (Ft. Lupe Fiasco)

Emotional wounds never heal if you keep fighting your own feelings. If you find peace with love and your emotions, you can move on.
