Ellie Goulding - Salt Skin (Lyra Heartstrings) by impala99 Ellie Goulding - Salt Skin (Lyra Heartstrings) by impala99
[SALT SKIN is] quite uplifting. It's about wanting to run to someone, and this time the guy wants the same thing, and wanted me, which is quite rare. Some people think the salt skin in the title is from tears, but it's actually about sweating. If you go to the gym or out for a run, you get salty skin from sweating. So SALT SKIN is just a sign that I've been running, which is my favourite thing to do, and in this case, running toward someone special. - Ellie Goulding [link]


You're as sharp as a knife
and you fit like a glove.
That is no way to live,
that is no way to love.
Full of fear in your skin
and the weakness in giving in...

You're stabbed in the back,
but you feel no pain;
push the heaviest doors
that you can't open.
Yeah, they tied me up
and my body lies still, again.

You're as bright as the sun
and as bold as the moon;
I don't know when you'll break,
but it's gonna be soon.
If my will caves in, I'll be in the same
boat as you...

Chorus
I've got the salt skin,
running to where he is;
never going to give in
even with the strength...

He's stealing salt skin,
telling me I'm winning wars they created
just to understand
the meaning...

Hands on strings and my mouth open;
find the perfect words
that I've not spoken.
And I won't tell the truth,
unless you want me to...

For all of the times that I lost my head;
when it rolled to the floor
and I found it again,
but when it came back,
no, I didn't know my own name!

Repeat chorus

(Ohhohhohhohoh...
Ohhohhohhohoh...
Ohhohhohhohoh...)
Ohhohhohhohoh-oh-oh-oh...

Chorus/outro
I've got the salt skin,
running to where he is;
never going to give in
even with the strength...

He's stealing salt skin,
telling me I'm winning wars they created
just to understand...

I've got the salt skin,
running to where he is;
never going to give in
even with the strength...

He's stealing salt skin,
telling me I'm winning wars they created
just to understand
the meaning!...
(The-the meaning...)
