Background[edit]

"Scarless" was written by Paulini, Thanh Bui and Alfred Tuohey.[1] Lyrically, the song is about a long-term abusive relationship Paulini had in 2006 with Australian rugby league footballer Wes Naiqama.[2] In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, Paulini said "I've never spoken about it because really, when it first happened, I've got to say I just wanted to go into a hotel room and hide away. It was difficult for me to talk about because not only was I going through it, my family and friends were, too. I wasn't strong enough then like I am now. If you read the lyrics, you will know exactly what the song is about and how hard it was for me."[2] "Scarless" was released digitally on 13 November 2009, to help raise awareness for White Ribbon Day, an international day to prevent violence against women.[3]

Music video[edit]

The accompanying music video for "Scarless" was directed by Ross Wood.[4] The video displays scenes of Paulini reminiscing about the time her boyfriend trashed her hotel room.[4]
