Skinny Love

Album: For Emma, Forever Ago (2008)
  • Come on skinny love just last the year
    Pour a little salt we were never here
    My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
    Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer

    I tell my love to wreck it all
    Cut out all the ropes and let me fall
    My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
    Right in the moment this order's tall

    And I told you to be patient
    And I told you to be fine
    And I told you to be balanced
    And I told you to be kind
    And in the morning I'll be with you
    But it will be a different kind
    And I'll be holding all the tickets
    And you'll be owning all the fines

    Come on skinny love, what happened here?
    Suckle on the hope in light brassieres
    My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
    Sullen load is full, so slow on the split

    And I told you to be patient
    And I told you to be fine
    And I told you to be balanced
    And I told you to be kind
    And now all your love is wasted
    And then who the hell was I?
    And I'm breaking at the britches
    And at the end of all your lines

    Who will love you?
    Who will fight?
    Who will fall far behind? Writer/s: Justin Deyarmond Edison Vernon
