Skin
Marika Hackman Lyrics


I'm jealous of your neck
That narrow porcelain plinth of flesh
It gets to hold your head
And I'd rather perform the task instead
I'll use my hands

You told me of your heart
A cold tile cavern bathed in dark
And earthy roots hanging from within
To shed some light the fire must get in

A searing pulse
I'm a fever in your chest
The burning sun I'm west

I, I am too naïve (You, you are too naïve)
Your lunar strands were lit in red and green
A captivating scene
A portion of myself was lost to me (A portion of yourself was lost to–)
But I'm not dead (But you're not dead)
Just a harbour no one's in
An empty salt filled skin

This takes me to dark yet relaxing place

This song is so intense yet it relaxes me.
It also makes me think of Hannibal and Will (from tv series Hannibal).

I like to think when after the first few times people fall in love with this song, then fall out love with song and move on... then come back after days maybe months... Will the feels be sorrow or joy?

came back after seeing my six year old post on facebook. it's still sorrow.

This is so beautiful, and the song and sound are killing me. I love it (•_,,,_,_•)

this song feels like living in a cottage where it always rains with the ghost of the person you love who only makes appearances in your fever dreams
