Skinny Love
Bon Iver Lyrics

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?

Birdy’s cover has that sound and vibe that is like you and your ex have been broken up for a long period of time. You’ve both had time to grow and move on from each other. You’re finding forgiveness within yourself and the relationship.

But Bon Iver’s, this is what it sounds like immediately after the breakup. You’re angry. You’re sad. You’re accusing. You wanted it to work, but it ended ugly. You want to know what, why, and how. You’re trying to forget them, but the memories won’t leave.

The original has this emotion that no cover can ever capture. The original is truly what Justin Vernon was feeling in the time of a breakup. It’s a sound when songwriting that nobody can replicate unless they’re truly feeling it in that exact moment. That’s what makes this version truly beautiful.

man fuck you for getting that metaphor 100% perfect

Nail meets head.

I totally agree. The original feels like he hated himself as well as his ex, like he knows it's his fault too...
