skin lyrics – poets of the fall

skin

we made ourselves home out of our dreams
brought with us this love now bittersweet
maybe i could say now that i always thought of you
how you run to walk with me whole life through

and i know we go deeper than skin but what lies within
it’s still deeper than we know

and for all this pantomime
you should see the state i’m in
i couldn’t heal myself with time alone
i have you tattooed on my skin

this house is full of stories we both told
these rooms, their very stage where they don’t fall
these walls, they whisper secrets and memories they’re of
this door no longer leads us to their love

and i know we go deeper than skin but what lies within
it’s still deeper than we know

and for all this pantomime
you should see the state i’m in
i couldn’t heal myself with time alone
i have you tattooed on my skin

all i ever wanted was to hold you
what can i do now to make things new
i ain’t trying to write you into a song
’cause you’re too sacred and i would feel wrong
but when irony life holds,
i was finally ready to meet you half way
you turned and walked away

and for all this pantomime
you should see the state i’m in
i couldn’t heal myself with time alone
i have you tattooed on my skin

i couldn’t heal myself with time alone
i have you tattooed on my skin
