Skinny Love (Bon Iver)


Come on skinny love just last the year
Pour a little salt we were never here
My my my – my my my – my my
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer

I tell my love to wreck it all
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall
My my my – my my my – my my
Right in this moment this order’s tall

And I told you to be patient and I told you to be fine
And I told you to be balanced and I told you to be kind
In the morning I’ll be with you
But it will be a different kind
Cause I’ll be holding all the tickets
And you’ll be owning all the fines

Come on skinny love what happened here
We suckled on the hope in lite brassiere
My my my – my my my – my my
Sullen load is full so slow on the split

And I told you to be patient and I told you to be fine
And I told you to be balanced and I told you to be kind
Now all your love is wasted then who the hell was I?
Cause now I’m breaking at the britches
And at the end of all your lines

Who will love you? who will fight?
And who will fall, far behind?
