lyrics

This is familiar, we’ve been here before
Same cloth on the table, same clock on the wall
Outside the window, the city’s asleep
She tosses and turns, it’s the company you keep
In this world gone wrong
Her only son

CHORUS
Her skin’s too thin, I can see right inside
And it’s killing her
Her heart’s on her sleeve
She wants to believe
You’re gonna pull through
It’s so hard to do, it’s so hard to do

You sit ‘cross the table, eyes on your plate
The silence hangs heavy, but there’s so much to say
Like ‘How did we get here?’, ‘You doing OK?’
She thinks if she asks you, you’ll just walk away
Like your father did, when you were a kid

CHORUS II
Your skin’s too thin I can see right inside
And it’s killing you
You think that you’re strong
You’re doing it wrong
I’m telling you

I know it’s hard for you
And all that you’re going through
You think she’s had all she can take
But have a good look inside
Tell her, I think you’ll find
She might bend, but boy she won’t break

Listen how loudly your praises she sings
Let her deflect all the arrows and slings
Then one day, God willing, not too long from now
You’ll be a man and she’ll be so proud
Of what you’ve become
Her only son

CHORUS III
Your skin’s too thin I can see right inside
And it’s killing you
You don’t want to wait
Until it’s too late
I’m telling you, you know that it’s true
You know that it’s true, you know that it’s true
