When I think about my skin
The trouble it has got me in
The things it said were good to do
The things that it has put me through
I find that there is one true
It lies to me, who lies with you.
It tells me that you’re only here
When I feel you nestled near
It tells me that you’re far away
When you can’t be swayed to stay
It cries and moans when you depart
It pulls and rips apart my heart
My skin, it cannot see your face,
But only capture your embrace.
It cannot see a fresh blown kiss
It only feels your fingertips.
So when you say your sweet goodbye
My skin it shrieks and wonders why
You heartlessly have left me here
All alone and filled with fear.
It did not hear you say adieu
Or how you wish that me and you
Could stay together night and day
It cannot hear a word you say
It only feels a chill set in
When your body leaves my skin
It lies to me and says you’ve gone
it tries to pull my heart along
it tries to tell it, look and see
she’s gone from you and gone from me
But my heart, so wise yet new,
Who knows the love in your adieu
grabs my skin and tells it true
I have no eyes and nor do you!
I cannot see, cannot touch cannot hear
I cannot taste cannot smell our dear
I only feel the love we share.
Unless that goes, I shall not care.
