George Ezra - It's Just My Skin Lyrics




There's a lock on my cupboard door,
That I can only reach once inside,
And I often sit and wonder who designed,
Such a perfect place for me to hide

It's just my name,
It's just my skin,
Holding a boulder,
Can you swim?
Oh as we fall,
Through the water,
You find a piece within,
And you know it's just your skin

Well I was never lonely ‘till the day that I was born,
Since that day I masquerade in a skin that I have worn,
With at least three separate individual minds,
When long John returns he'll give a scream,
and what he finds

Is just my name,
Is just my skin,
Holding a boulder,
Can you swim?
Oh as we fall,
Through the water,
You find a piece within,
And you know it's just your

Black dog, black dog, that I'll never know,
Oh black dog haunts you mind, your world, your soul,
Oh black dog, black dog, can't you see I am fine?
Oh black dog, black dog, you're no plague of mine.

It's just my name,
It's just my skin,
Holding a boulder,
Can you swim?
It's just my name,
Oh, it's just my skin,
Holding a boulder,
Can you swim?
Oh as we fall,
Through the water,
You find a piece within,
And you know it's just your skin.

    There's a lock on my cupboard door,
    That I can only reach once inside,
    And I often sit and wonder who designed,
    Such a perfect place for me to hide

    It's just my name,
    It's just my skin,
    Holding a boulder,
    Can you swim?
    Oh as we fall,
    Through the water,
    You find a piece within,
    And you know it's just your skin

    Well I was never lonely ‘till the day that I was born,
    Since that day I masquerade in a skin that I have worn,

    Oh black dog haunts you mind, your world, your soul,
    Oh black dog, black dog, can't you see I am fine?
    Oh black dog, black dog, you're no plague of mine.

    It's just my name,
    It's just my skin,
    I'm just a boulder,
    Can you swim?
    It's just my name,
    Oh, it's just my skin,
    Im just your boulder,
    Can you swim?
    Oh as we fall,
    Through the water,
    You find a piece within,
    And you know it's just your skin.

  9. Jacquelyn

  10. I'm Just Blake

  11. Barbara Baisden

    I'm enjoying listening to George all evening!

  12. Julie Elise

    I like this even more than the album version. There's so much feeling in this song.

  13. Xandy Sánchez

  16. Roberta Budimirovic

    I would like to hug him for just one night. No words,no nothing. Just to hug everything he is,and everything he's not.

  17. Ruslan Melnik

    holy shit...

  18. daBomb1968

    breath of fresh air this guy is, awsome vocal.

  19. Helen Rachael

    I feel like 'black dog' represents insecurities/fears you're trying to fight or overcome in order to achieve your goals or just function in life. I love different interpretations of lyrics. This is a very powerful song, George has a powerful and moving voice.

    Rachel B.

    Hel on earth. I thought it was a reference to racism, the whole song seems to reference racism

    Joshua Miller

    Isn't the black dog a symbol for death in England? My thoughts are that he's referencing suicide, or suicidal feelings that are haunting him- "Black dog get out of my mind"

    Martin Remen

    Winstin Churchill used the phrase «black dog» when writing about his depression, so this song is about depression. «Holding a boulder, can you swim» is like, normal people swim normally, ppl with depression swims with a boulder (i think he is trying to explain how depression feels)

    megan ross

    yeah the 'black dog' is normally used to represent anxiety that people can't get rid of and I agree about his voice

  20. Gerjan Kuilder

    Am I correct if I say this song is about a depression you don't understand...? I feel 1/1 with these lyrics.
