YOUR OWN SKIN

 

"Your Own Skin" was inspired by an assignment for a sync songwriting class - the theme was home.  After connecting with island producer Eric Dubois, I heard his cool fresh EDM/hip-hop inspired tracks, and this particular track originally called Clouds really put me in a mood of reflection. The track had a song, a story for me to hear and then to tell.  I was not expecting this "home" song to be about feeling at home with myself, feeling at home in my own skin.  It went another layer deeper in regards to my own acceptance and honoring of my story, my flaws to my greatness to everything in between.  So grateful for this song that surprised me!

 

YOUR OWN SKIN

I see you in the mirror

Talking like you hate her

This comparing’s got to stop 

You’re wishing for the same thing

Longing for that one dream

The one where you belong

 

You have been a circle

Living in square world

Trying to make sense of this box

Changing up your fashion

Be a different person

All it’s done is get you lost

 

What if today's…the day you claim your holy ground 

Your worth is found...you're found

 

Right here, right now

It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for

Welcome home to your own skin

 

I know it feels so different

But hey you've gotta listen

To the voice inside your heart

Learn to love yourself more

Walk right thru a new door

To a house that hurts no more

 

You can be yourself here

You are truly safe here

No minefields in the floor

Forget about the ceiling

Limits have no meaning

When you know just who you are

 

Today's the day…the day you claim your holy ground

Your light is found – you’re found

 

Right here, right now

It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for

Oh welcome home to your own skin

Right here, right now

You’re so ready for it, I know you know

Oh baby welcome home to your own skin

Ooh ooh, ooh ooh welcome home to your own skin

Ooh ooh, ooh ooh welcome home to your own skin
