My Skin - Natalie Merchant (La vida secreta de las palabras)

9,864 views 6 years ago
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
'Cause I've been treated so wrong
I've been treated so long
As if I'm becoming untouchable
Well, 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
In the frost-killing hour
Sweet turning sour and untouchable
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
Oh 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 liked 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
Angel, sweet love of my life
Oh, I need this...
Well is it dark enough?
Can you see me?
Do you want me?
Can you reach me?
Or I'm leaving...
Better shut your mouth
And hold your breath
You kiss me now
You catch your death
Oh, I mean this...
Oh, I mean this...
