Jeff Buckley – Sky Blue Skin Lyrics

Sky Blue Skin (Demo – September 13, 1996) by Jeff Buckley


Take the pain until it all rings hollow
We learn to loathe the truth as it shines
I already see the ghosts on the sidewalk
Kissing in the hereafter

And your hands are in your pockets as you face ’em
And your bodies both frozen by the dawn
Only one knows they’re watching it down
They’re there from hereafter

Young life crosses young love
You’ve learned to think life is for somebody else
You make it hard to live it for yourself
And the man you love just doesn’t know just what he’s after

Chances are you wouldn’t even recognize the man I am now
Chances are you wouldn’t even recognize the man I am now
Chances are you wouldn’t even recognize the man I am now

Yeah make up any excuse
To remedy you can’t control
And life wanders through me so slow
It cuts between us as we grow

Mmm
(That’s all… that’s all it is)
