Bon Iver Skinny Love Lyrics

Last updated: 02/21/2012 10:00:00 AM

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 this moment this order's tall

I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
And I told you to be balanced
And I told you to be kind

In the morning I'll be with you
But it will be a different kind
I'll be holding all the tickets
And you'll be owning all the fines

Come on skinny love what happened here
We suckled on the hope in lite 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 who the hell was I?
I'm breaking at the bridges
And at the end of all your lines

Who will love you?
Who will fight?
Who will fall far behind?
Ooh, ooh

When I listen to this song, it's bittersweet. Simply put, it makes me sad. Justin Vernon is able to reach deep inside of you and pull out all of your emotion through his music. He is a truly intriguing artist. This track also makes me happy because it is so breathtaking and lovely. We are lucky to have his talent.

In love with this song!!! | Reviewer: jzavala99 | 2/13/12

Wow! I can't believe I'm the first to review this song! I was lucky enough to discover Bon Iver in 2009, but this song really helped me get through a really tough time after my engagement was called off. It made me realize it wasn't my fault.
