Skin    (video)

 

              Am                                        F

When I heard that sound, when the walls came down,

                            C               G

I was thinking about you, about you.

                 Am                                      F

When my skin grows old, when my breath runs cold,

                            C              G

I'll be thinking about you, about you.

 

                                   Am                               F

1. Seconds from my heart a bullet from the dark,

                           G                                     Dm

    helpless, I surrender, shackled by your love.

                              Am                                  F

    Holding me like this with poison on your lips,

                            G                             Dm

    only when it's over, silence, it's so hard.

                           F         Am                         G

    'Cause it was almost love, it was almost love,

                F        Am                         G

    it was almost love, it was almost love.

 

+  CHORUS

 

                 Am                                                  F

+  When I run out of air to breathe, it's your ghost I see,

                                C              G

    I'll be thinking about you, about you.

                F        Am                          - G

    It was almost love, it was almost...

 

                                         Am                                F

2. We bleed ourselves in vain, how tragic is this game,

                                G                                             Dm

    turn around, I'm holding on to someone, but the love is gone.

                          Am                                           F

    Carrying the load, with wings that feel like stone,

                                  G                                   Dm

    knowing that we nearly fell so far now, it's hard to tell.

                      F            Am                          G

    Yeah, we came so close, it was almost love,

                F        Am                         G

    it was almost love, it was almost love.

 

              Am                                        F

When I heard that sound, when the walls came down,

                            C               G

I was thinking about you, about you.

                 Am                                      F

When my skin grows old, when my breath runs cold,

                            C              G

I'll be thinking about you, about you.

 

                 Am                                                  F

+  When I run out of air to breathe, it's your ghost I see,

                                C              G

    I'll be thinking about you, about you.

F               Am                            G

    While I reached out for your hand,

F                  Am                       G

    when the walls were caving in.

F            Am                     G

    Well, I see you on the other side,

                 F        Am      G

    we can try all over again.

 

+  CHORUS

 

                 Am                                                  F

+  When I run out of air to breathe, it's your ghost I see,

                                C              G

    I'll be thinking about you, about you.

                           F          Am                         G

    'Cause it was almost love, it was almost love,

               F         Am                         G

    it was almost love, it was almost love.
