Against My Skin

Against My Skin Unreserved apology extended to you I painted you by numbers How could you shine if all I have is black and white Being here brings back happy memories Even though at the time I know I wasn’t smiling There is no wrong anymore just different degrees of right It’s not like, I understood a single word you said Yet each word crashed like rain against my skin I see you wanting, I feel me falling back to my old ways I see your mouth moving but not one word makes sense Make me see What this is for and how much this is worth Different minds batting from opposing sides Without ever knowing despite living the same life For so many years, Thanks you for the days I keep each one in my mind in golden frames If you had told me when I was ten I’d be doing the shit that I am I’d have said get up and fix this mess, you should be ashamed Who cares if you want more than today can bring Undeserved reality extended to you without a choice How could you shine if all I have is black, is black It’s not like I understood a single word you said, Yet each word crashed like rain against my skin
