“old skin” -jeremy messersmith

When you’re old and gray
Lines etched upon your face
Put your hair down
I’ll kiss your brow
Call you beautiful

Our love was made to last
We fade like photographs
Wrinkled and worn
The edges are torn
Unmistakable

I’ll love your old skin
Love your old skin
Love your old skin
I’ll love your old skin

When you’re feeling tired
Weary and uninspired
The life that you knew
Seems worthless to you
Unavoidable

When your eyes won’t shine
Best years are far behind
I’ll hold you close
Never let go
Unforgettable

And when there’s nothing left
Ashes and silhouettes
I hope that I find my rest
Next to you
