Song lyrics

[Verse 1]
I'm still alone in the back room
Fighting with a black mood, keeping quiet
And I'm still looking through a cracked door
Looking at you, all in the light
And you don't know how hard I tried...

Skin

Kyla La Grange


[Verse 1]
I'm still alone in the back room
Fighting with a black mood, keeping quiet
And I'm still looking through a cracked door
Looking at you, all in the light
And you don't know how hard I tried
To keep my eyes shut tight

[Pre-Chorus]
But I keep seeing her skin on your skin
Oh I keep seeing her skin on your skin

[Chorus]
But I don't wanna screw you, bad boy
Wanna make you sad, boy
I can never say
I'm so done with this, my love
I'm so done with this, my love
Now I see it in my sleep, boy
Hear it in my ears, boy
I can never say
I'm so done with this my love
I'm so done with this my love
Why did you want her that much?

[Verse 2]
I'm still alone like I told you, no one's gonna get through
I'm on fire
And I will burn til' it don't hurt
I'm going headfirst, hear me cry
And you don't know how far I've gone
It tears me up inside

[Pre-Chorus]
Cause I keep seeing her lips on your lips
Oh I keep seeing her lips on your lips

[Chorus]
But I don't wanna screw you, bad boy
Wanna make you sad, boy
I can never say
I'm so done with this, my love
I'm so done with this, my love
Now I see it in my sleep, boy
Hear it in my ears, boy
I can never say
I'm so done with this my love
I'm so done with this my love
Why did you want her that much?

[Outro]
(Don't you know that I love, better...)
(Just gimme time and I'll get better)
(Don't you know that I love, better...)

"Skin" Track Info



“Skin” was released as a single on November 16 2015, exactly two months after her previous single, “So Sweet”. These two tracks, along with 2016's “Hummingbird”, will feature on an album which is, as of mid-June ‘16, nameless.

The song received a glowing review from online music magazine The Line of Best Fit, with Laurence Day declaring—rather bombastically—that “Skin” is

a gargantuan piece of voyeuristic pop, unsettling and heartbreaking in equal measure, with a chorus to shake foundations.

The chorus does indeed dominate this song, its each iteration being longer than either of the two verses, and with a more emphatic vocal delivery.

The song has the singer preoccupied with a love interest whose own interest is in somebody else: at points (such as in the first verse) she appears to describe herself observing the others in the flesh, but it is quite possible to view the spatial terms (“alone in the back room”, “looking through a cracked door”) as being essentially figurative. The song contains several examples of metonymy, with individuated body parts—“I keep seeing her skin on your skin”, “her lips on your lips”—describing specific physical connections but, at the same time, evoking a more general sense of intimacy. There is also a discord between the singer's being able only to see what other people are able to feel.
