lyrics

“Second Skin” by Alfa Garcia © 2008

Verse 1:
I’m in love with love, they say
But I’m not sure it falls so neatly
She’s a little bit too strong
A bite too large to chew on,
Oh what a tragedy
Cuz I don’t wanna be alone anymore
If this means anything...

CHORUS
I’ll be the last thing that you hear
be the first thing that you taste
In the morning when you wake up
I’ll be the reckless love you wait for
the storybook you never
Stopped believing in.
I’ll be your second skin.

Verse 2:
And I’ll wear your heart on my sleeve
Never forget the way they feel
And do what you will tonight
You’re the only one who ever knew me
OH what a tragedy

Cuz I don’t wanna be alone anymore
If this means anything:

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
And when the world falls in
I’ll keep your peace of mind
I’ll wrap my arms around
your tired shoulders
And when the earthquakes come
I’ll be a steady rock
That you can walk on…

I’ll be the last thing that you hear
be the first thing that you taste
In the morning when you wake up, yeah…

I’ll be the reckless love you wait for
the storybook you never
Stopped believing in.
I’ll be your second skin.
I’ll be your second skin
I’ll be your second skin
