Skinny Love Lyrics

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 the 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
And in the morning I'll be with you
But it will be a different kind
And I'll be holding all the tickets
And you'll be owning all the fines Come on skinny love, what happened here?
Suckle on the hope in light brassieres
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
And now all your love is wasted
And then who the hell was I?
And I'm breaking at the britches
And at the end of all your lines

Who will love you?
Who will fight?
Who will fall far behind?

Thoughts & Meanings

The most heart-wrenching song I have heard up to know, I think. You can feel him breaking and those lyrics are... devastating. It's a love that is skinny in the sense that, you know, when you have this rope that won't hold the weight you need it hold? You know it's going to break any time soon, but it's all you got. And you'll take the risk. This song is a bit like that. Like taking the risk of loving even through an extremely fragile love. I think he loved someone who was in no position to return that love. We don't choose who we love, and sometimes the person that we love is so fucked up that they can't even take care of themselves, so how are they going to take care of us? it's complicated and it's rough, but it's also love because we are there despite everything. He is there still and when she's gone, when she let go, all that he can think of is well, what did I fight for? why did you leave me? who will love you know? it's giving everything, absolutely all.
