Skin (The World Ends With You)

from by Loren Radis

lyrics

you said you weren't all you used to hope
so i peeled my skin off of my bones
and draped it across your fragile frame
sayin' "you can be me for a while if you think that might help"

your new body fit remarkably well
and you didn't need me anymore
so i was left alone, naked and cold
sayin' "don't mind me, i am just the ghost of someone long gone"

let's throw it all away
if you don't need me anyway
i'll laugh out loud as it burns

i gave you everything
all that i had in me
still i promise i'll always sing your song

death will come callin' for us both
but i am already a ghost
what will you have to show to him?
what have you done with your life in the skin off of my back?

you threw it all away
to prove that you don't need me
i watched you laugh as it burned

but i'd do it all again
if just for the chance to mend
the scars that i left in your mind

and i swear right here and now
that i always knew somehow
that i could never be the one

the world ends with you and me
there's nothing else i can see
so i'll sing your song 'till the day i die
