Friday Skin

lyrics

Friday, skin and breath and laughing
Dancing like we were insane, don't
Feel the world around us, we are
Stars and we are shooting into

Saturday, a warm a soothing
Sigh, a blanket wrapped until the
Fear creeps in and chokes me, holds the
Pillow to my face

All week long I'm thinking of you
Forcing me to be enough for
Myself and not want you, to fill
Up the empty spaces left by

Shit that went down way before you
Stumbled tripped into my line of
Vision, don't forget yourself girl
This is not a race

Ooo ooo oh oh, ooo ooo oh oh
Leave well enough alone
Ooo ooo oh oh, ooo ooo oh oh
Turn off your fucking phone

And throw that Molatov into the
Haunted house inside me, watch it
Burn down; from the ashes, I am
Rising up to meet this life and

Meeting you halfway across a
Lifetime of decisions, and not
Always searching your blue eyes for
Signs that you might leave

So kiss my now before I start to
Doubt, start disbelieving I'm re-
Ceiving the right message, not just
Static, interference and my

Pressing need to trust again to
Violently leap into that vol-
Cano, let me smolder; baby
Needs this fire to breathe.

Ooo ooo oh oh, ooo ooo oh oh
Blood and sinew and bone
Ooo ooo oh oh, ooo ooo I'm not
Made of fucking stone

This is a hell of my own creation
This is divine fornication
This is a sticky situation
This is a hell of my own creation

(solo)

This is a hell of my own creation
This is divine fornication
She be a sticky situation
This is a hell of my own creation

Friday, skin and breath and laughing
Dancing like we were insane
Don't feel the world around us; we are
Stars and we are shooting into
