Ran across this lyric and thought I'd like to try setting it, so here it is. Thanks Michael for letting me do it!

Lyrics: 

Under My Skin

Under my skin
Emotions run thin
But I’ll let you in
Hope you’ll flow to my heart
Not tear it apart
I’m willing to try once again.

Behind my sight
Try as I might
Blindness takes control
But I’ll let you see
What’s inside of me
If you promise to hold onto my soul

Inside my head
Lots left unsaid
Words escape me for now
But I’ll write a book
About the love that you took
Then put it behind us somehow

Under my skin
Emotions run thin
But I’ll let you in
Hope you’ll flow to my heart
Not tear it apart
I’m willing to try once again.

Despite my scars
I’ll reach for the stars
If you’ll help me to fly
Lovers devotion
At first in slow motion
We’ll give it another try

Under my skin
I’ll let you in
Let’s begin
Again

Michael September 2020

Lovely intro, lovely melody. Michael's lyrics get addictive, don't they Alex?! And this is a very good lyric. I wish I had the time to go right through the full almost-50 list. Perhaps after 5090 stops...

Sounds great! Vocals, guitar & lyrics all work well together.

This immediately sounds like a classic rock ballad to me. Works on every level, and I love the vocal performance here - so soulful.

Great lyrics and vocals. Definitely sounds like the acoustic version of a classic rock ballad!

I fell over this one again and was about to enthuse then realised I already have. But it deserves more applause for the very same reason! And lo, now I have TWO downloads of this! Biggrin
