Sunday Scribblings: Skin

Isn't it funny when something just pops right into your mind after reading a prompt?

This week, I'm going to keep it short, sweet and completely unoriginal. Well, original in that I thought of it and that it means alot to me, but unoriginal in that I didn't actually write it. If only I could lay claim to such brilliance but alas! I cannot.

Here are the lyrics from one of my favourite bands (from a couple of years ago, but I still love the old stuff now) - Taxiride. The song? Is called SKIN.


It could have beenThe smell of your skin.An innocence I've never seen,Find myself reaching for you.I couldn't ask for anymore,Feels like I've met you once before;You've opened the door to a brand new me..

Some things are meant to be.Now you've shown me the way,Got me thinking that maybe..Something just keeps telling me,If I gave you my word;Some things are meant to be.

A message left on your machine,Now I'm waiting for the phone to ring.It's in the way you look at me;I'm trying so hard to believe that..


Some things are meant to be.Now you've shown me the way,Got me thinking that maybe..Something just keeps telling me,If I gave you my word;Some things are meant to be.It could have been,The smell of your skin..

Some things are meant to be.Now you've shown me the way,Got me thinking that maybe..Something just keeps telling me,If I gave you my word;Some things are meant to be.If I gave you my wordSome things are meant to be.


It's one of those songs that is hauntingly beautiful, and absolutely perfect live. It's amazing and classic and I still feel it rings true to me right now.

I never heard the song, but it fits the prompt perfectly. The words remind me of my relationship..in the beginning.
