SONG IDEAS

SKIN ON SKIN - Acoustic/Pop/Rock


Kay Bell/Kat Ferguson
Artist - Kat Ferguson

Story

This song was inspired by someone close to me who kept asking “Why haven't I inspired you enough to write something?”

 

Kat and I always rationalised that we only ever write when we feel inspired to do so; eventually, the day came when something was roused in our creativity, inspired by that very person. As a song, it came together by tossing ideas (both melody and words) around, and Skin On Skin was the result.

Lyrics

V1

One, one single thought

Is all I have, of you

V2

Three, three years of days

Has found a place where we can talk at ease

And midnight whispers won’t you please

PC

There is no wrong or right time

What’s yours will now be my time

Let me take you away

CH

So let me tell you this end now

I wanna feel skin on skin

Oh let me tell you this end now

Feel the breath of life begin

I wanna take each moment in

You're with me, I’m with you

V3

Five in dark daylight

You feel me reaching, for you

V4

Time where friends can fade

We’ve found a way of feeling more

Bearing souls within these walls

PC

There is no wrong or right time

What’s yours will now be my time

Let me take you away

Bridge

Who, who would o’ thought you and me

Who, who knew we’d fit, so perfectly; hmmmn, oh

Oh, confide in me

PC

There is no wrong or right time

What’s yours will now be my time

Let me take you away

CH/OUTRO

So let me tell you this end now

I wanna feel skin on skin

Oh let me tell you this end now

Feel the breath of life begin, oh yeah

I wanna take each moment in

Feel skin on skin

Let me tell you this end now

I wanna tell you this end now

I need to tell you this end now

Oooooooh (to fade)
