nothing but skin lyrics – blindside

i put on my stinking coat again
but that so much rain would come from inside
i didn’t understand
i could always protect me
but i couldn’t protect me from this
that all of this was just a death kiss

just one silent word and i’m whole again
you said it

look at me now
i’m hardly moving
it’s only you and me now
it’s only you
i scream but the walls suck my air

i look at my arms resting on her back
they can’t be mine they look more dead then alive
i hate that i own the ability to not get back on track
i wet her hair and they still look more dead then alive

to be allowed to break into a thousand pieces
in her arms and in your hand
can’t even form my lips to say jesus
but i thank you for knowing where i’m supposed to land

people say i should eat more, boy they should see me now
i’m almost vanishing, skin so thin i can see right through
makes you more visible inside me, you rise as i bow
fight for every breath and breathe only you
