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 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 my my - my my ...
Right in the moment this order's tall

I told you to be patient I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced 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
Suckle on the hope in lite brassiere
My my my - my my my - my my my - my my ...
Sullen load is full so slow on the split

I told you to be patient I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced I told you to be kind
Now all your love is wasted then who the hell was I?
Cause now I'm breaking at the britches
And at the end of all your lines

Who will love you? who will fight?
And who will fall, far behind?

Come on skinny love
My my my - my my my - my my my - my my ...

Come on skinny love
My my my - my my my - my my my - my my ...

I am offended that whatever idiot uploaded these lyrics had the nerve to say this song was written by that girl from the UK. She's extremely talented but this song was written by Justin Vernon of Bon Iver. Its people like this that misinform and confuse the hell out of everyone.

this song was actually not written by the UK singer birdy (jasmine) it was in fact written by Bon Iver for his album, Forever Ago which was released in 2008. It was later covered by several artists including Birdy.

Song: about a couple, with the man who is dead. The blood in the sink could be the woman trying to kill herself to be with him and they'll see each other in the morning, but it would be different kind

I personally think the meanings of this song is not in the title but In the words, I think its abuse in the relationship, and yet the love is still there no matter what but she had to leave sad really

Okay first of all, 'BIRDY' did not even write this song. This is a cover and its really disappointing that the first thing that comes up on google when you type in 'Skinny love' is this. The cover was really good but the people who think she originally wrote this need to be told otherwise.

i don't need these lyrics explained to me i've lived them, she gave me all her love but couldn't help me fend off my demons, they won and the love was lost. there is a fine line between love and hate i've seen that line! x

Love this song!!! It's great. Tbh, I only heard of it when Bella sang it on the XFactor :L haha I'm sure everyones the same with that.. Well it's a good song and Birdy sings it well... I honestly think it sounds better with Bella's voice. Haha! I listen to it ALL the time on my phone... Loveeeee it!

I love this song so much I really wish I had enough courage to enter for the X-Factor but I'm only 13 there's no way they will let me through -.- I'm not a good singer but there's a year for me to improve.

I LOVE THIS SONG SO FLIPPING MUCH!!! Birdy is amazing, she has such a lovely voice! She even followed me on IG! Bon Iver is amazing too. I will always love him. This song makes me wanna cry. Birdy and Bon Iver are both amazing. God I wish I had a voice like them ! xx

I love this song, but I much prefer the original version by Bon Iver. Birdys and Ed Sheerans versions are also good but not as amazing! I do love listening to all three songs one after another though. I don't think Bon Ivers version will ever get old and I will always love it as much as I do now!
