Shed My Skin

Carry on your fire and raise your head.
And everything comes to end,
when hearts asunder.
 
When you gather like birds of prey.
Rejoice what is broken and turning away.
There’s no rest cause these wounds won’t heal.
I can’t let it go, can’t let it go.
 
No matter how deep we’re falling, for our calling.
Can’t look back because it leads me to nowhere.
What is awaiting, I’ll embrace it.
In the end, all I know, I have to face it.
 
Carry on your fire and raise your head
and save yourself from their collective projection.
Carry on your fire and raise your head
and everything comes to end, when hearts asunder.
 
Forgive me, release me, I shed my skin.
This pain is awakening what lies deep within.
 
You kill me, as lightning your words strike in.
Oh, everything’s changing now that I shed my skin.
 
That I shed my skin.
 
I know heaven is not my home.
I feel like I’m choking and I’m playing their game.
 
Oh, I can’t hold on to yesterday.
I cannot hold on, cannot hold on.
 
No matter how deep we’re falling, for our calling.
Can’t look back because it leads me to nowhere.
What is awaiting, I’ll embrace it.
In the end, all I know, I have to face it.
 
When hearts asunder.
 
Forgive me, release me, I shed my skin
This pain is awakening what lies deep within.
You kill me, as lightning your words strike in.
Oh, everything’s changing now that I shed my skin.
 
We shed our skin,
we don’t wanna be broken, broken.
We shed our skin,
we don’t wanna be broken, broken.
 
Carry on your fire and raise your head,
and everything comes to end, when hearts asunder.
 
Forgive me, release me, I shed my skin.
This pain is awakening what lies deep within.
You kill me, as lightning your words strike in.
Oh, everything’s changing now that I shed my skin.
 
That I shed my skin,
that I shed my skin,
that I shed my skin,
that I shed my skin!
 
Carry on your fire and raise your head.
And everything comes to end, when hearts asunder.
 
When you gather like birds of prey.
Rejoice what is broken and turning away.

I can’t let it go, can’t let it go.
 
No matter how deep we’re falling, for our calling.
Can’t look back because it leads me to nowhere.
What is awaiting, I’ll embrace it.
In the end, all I know, I have to face it.

  • I shed my skin:

    Within Temptation's lead vocalist Sharon den Adel shared:

    “'Shed My Skin’ revolves around dealing with inevitable changes in life. It is about becoming the person we are meant to be, even if that means losing people we love, but have grown apart from. Real growth begins where comfort zones end and that’s exactly what the song is all about: if we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we aren’t really living.”

Thanks!
