Skin (Sarabeth)

Doug Johnsonand Joe Henry

Sara Beth is scared to deathTo hear what the doctor will sayShe hasn’t been well, since the day that she fellAnd the bruise just won’t go awaySo she sits and she waits with her mother and dadAnd flips through an old magazineTill the nurse with the smile stands in the doorAnd says will you please come with meSara Beth is scared to deathCause the doctor just told her the newsBetween the red cells and white, something’s not rightBut we’re gonna take care of youSix chances in ten, it won’t come back againWith the therapy we’re gonna tryIt’s just been approved, it’s the strongest there isAnd I think that we caught it in timeAnd Sara Beth closes her eyesChorus:And she dreams she’s dancingAround and around without any caresAnd her very first love is holding her closeAnd a soft wind is blowing her hairSara Beth is scared to deathAs she sits holding her momCause it would be a mistake for someone to takeA bald headed girl to the promFor just this morning, right here on her pillowWas the cruelest of any surpriseAnd she cried when she gathered it all in her handsThe proof that she couldn’t denyAnd Sara Beth closes her eyesChorus:And she dreams she’s dancingAround and around without any caresAnd her very first love is holding her closeAnd a soft wind is blowing her hairBridge:It’s quarter to seven, that boy’s at the doorAnd her daddy ushers him inAnd when he takes off his capThey all start to cryCause this morning where his hair had all beenSoftly she touches just skinSecond Chorus:And they go dancing, around and aroundWithout any caresAnd her very first true love is holding her closeAnd for a moment she isn’t scared© 2004 Mike Curb Music/Sweet Radical Music (BMI) (administered by Mike Curb Music), Cool Hand Music (ASCAP) c/o Karen Schauben Publishing Administration.
