Skin

Skin

Soft but not shaky.

Hurt you?

Don’t try to make me.

But if I do

You know how to heal.

You’re always eager

To let me reveal…

***

You hold the good parts in

You’re my skin.

Always gentle,

But never, never too thin.

***

Ready – for the touch?

Like it?

Can’t get too much.

Knows how to handle

Many kinds of attack

And let the water

Roll right off my back…

***

You hold the good parts in

You’re my skin.

Always gentle,

But never, never too thin.

***

Colour – it changes often.

Calloused?

Knows how to soften.

Whether you’re pale

Or exotically brown,

You’re well liked

All over the town….

***

You hold the good parts in

You’re my skin.

Always gentle,

But never, never too thin.

Strings (lyrics)

Strings

You hang dangling in a cloud

Trying to live your life out loud.

You don’t think

That you can stand

Without your strings

In the hand of someone

With a little money

***

(chorus)

Dangling

Wrapped up and strangling

A life you’re mangling

Thinking you’re real

(…and free free free).

***

You’ve got two feet all your own

Yet you’re afraid to stand alone

Surrounded by a wall of fear

It’s hard to stare

Into a mirror

And see that

You are someone.

***

(chorus)

Dangling

Wrapped up and strangling

A life you’re mangling

Thinking you’re real

(…and free free free).

***

You use strings and they use you

They strangle everything you do

I wish that you with all your grace

Would stand and meet me

Face to face

Without a single string attached.

***

(chorus)

Dangling

Wrapped up and strangling

A life you’re mangling

Thinking you’re real

(…and free free free).
