Steps – Under My Skin Lyrics

Under My Skin Lyrics By Steps Lyrics

I come to life when the light turns on
But die with every curtain fall
My troubled life makes my troubled heart
Hold on for this curtain call

Buried in smoke and mirrors, no one can find
These little pieces I’ve tried to leave behind
If I showed you all my truth, could you still be mine?
Would you still be mine?

I just want you near, I want you to stay
But if you come too close, my edges will fray
I won’t let you in and show you my pain
I’d rather lie here with the darkness
Cause you don’t know what’s under my skin
Close to my body, close to my heart
Like it’s always been, under my skin

As shadows chase, never to be caught
Hoping for the break of dawn
Look away and take me from my flaws
And tell me what is going on

Buried in smoke and mirrors, no one can find
These little pieces I’ve tried to leave behind
If I showed you all my truth, could you still be mine?
Would you still be mine?

I just want you near, I want you to stay
But if you come too close, my edges will fray
I won’t let you in and show you my pain
I’d rather lie here with the darkness
‘Cause you don’t know what’s under my skin
Close to my body, close to my heart
Like it’s always been, under my skin

Open me up, facing my fears, show me what love is
Build me back up, fade all my tears, show me what trust is
It’s in your lives, I know you care how hard being tough is
How hard being loved is

I just want you near, I want you to stay
But if you come too close, my edges will fray
I won’t let you in and show you my pain
I’d rather lie here with the darkness
‘Cause you don’t know what’s under my skin
Close to my body, close to my heart
Like it’s always been, under my skin
Close to my body, close to my heart
Like it’s always been, under my skin
