Now that you've grown up
You can finally learn to be a child
We made it to the end of the world
But we'll never make it out alive

Skin thin, I breathe out, you breathe in
But the day seems so long
Skin thin, blood again
It's all I can do to hold on
We're just skin thin

Always knew if we didn't have each other
We'd have nothing at all
But you were always brave enough
To live like you can never fall

Skin thin, I breathe out, you breathe in
But the day seems so long
Skin thin, blood again
It's all I can do to hold on, hold on

Now that we've grown up
Can finally learn to be a child
Good friends behind me
But ghosts up ahead for miles and miles

Skin thin, I breathe out, you breathe in
The days, they seem so long
Skin thin, blood again
It's all I can do to hold on
Life's just skin thin
