My Skin Lyrics

My Skin (我的皮肤) (LP版) - Natalie Merchant

Take a look at my body

 

Look at my hands

 

There's so much here

That I don't understand

 

Your face saving promises

Whispered like prayers

 

I don't need them

 

I've been treated so wrong

I've been treated so long

 

As if I'm becoming untouchable

 

Contempt loves the silence

 

It thrives in the dark

 

With fine winding tendrils

That strangle the heart

 

They say that promises

Sweeten the blow

 

But I don't need them

 

No I don't need them

 

I've been treated so wrong

I've been treated so long

 

As if I'm becoming untouchable

 

I'm a slow dying flower

I'm frost killing hour

 

The sweet turning sour

And untouchable

 

O I need

The darkness

The sweetness

The sadness

 

The weakness

 

Oh I need this

 

I need

A lullaby

 

A kiss goodnight

Angel sweet

Love of my life

 

O I need this

 

I'm a slow dying flower

 

Frost killing hour

 

The sweet turning sour

And untouchable

 

Do you remember the way

That you touched me before

 

All the trembling sweetness

I loved and adored

 

Your face saving promises

Whispered like prayers

 

I don't need them

 

I need

The darkness

 

The sweetness

The sadness

 

The weakness

 

Oh I need this

 

I need

A lullaby

 

A kiss goodnight

The angel sweet

Love of my life

 

Oh I need this

 

Is it dark enough

Can you see me

 

Do you want me

Can you reach me

 

Or I'm leaving

 

You better shut your mouth

Hold your breath

Kiss me now you'll catch your death

 

O I mean this

 

 

Oh I need this
