second skin


always this - same and different
always this - taken given
and never thought of change
still the song remains

if i'm gonna shed the second skin
i've always worn
think it's gonna be the strangest thing
i've ever done

but holding on - to some past present
is holding back - and future isn't
made for those who wait
better never than late

if i'm gonna shed the second skin
i've always worn
think it's gonna be the hardest thing
i've ever done

and still the shame to come restrains
hold me in these gentle arms until
this chance has gone
