Actor | Observer - Northern Skin Lyrics

You see me for so much more
Than I could ever see within myself
Spent so much time in bed
Reaching for a turned back
That it became the norm
The coldest shoulders
Had made my skin go numb
Until I felt your warmth
I was burned at the touch
But from that pain comes thaw
A part of me is waking up

You found me just as I was shutting down
My love was buried in the frozen ground
Shake the dirt and the ice
I felt so cast aside
A discarded device
But it wasn't til I saw your eyes
Looking into mine
That I broke down
That I realized

How much I had hurt
Covered in the dirt
Hardened in the cold
My heart was put on hold

So this is what it means
To finally be seen
To be brought to my knees
But never have to plead

My lips utter the phrase
"It's just serendipity"
But this was no mistake
We're right where we should be

I'm sorry, it's just not what I'm used to
After all those years trying
To be of some use to
Someone who never needed me
Someone who never needed what I was
So I learned to live with it
Until your fingers found my skin
Burning me like medicine
Showing me what I've been missing
No apprehension
We just fell into it
