My Skin

Lizzo

Big Grrrl Small World


Learning to love yourself
and like learning to love your body
is like a whole journey that I feel
like every person, but more specifically
women, have to go through
so I feel like doing this is a good way
to kinda break through and kinda seal
the last chapter of the "learning to love"
and just loving

Ooh, what's deeper than
what's deeper than the darkest best
Kept secret? Beneath the surface, we could
Let it bring us together
or it could tear us apart, oh
I'm filled with it, I gotta love
with no conditions
Though it's hard to re-envision time
and time again
Even when, even when it didn't matter anymore
The most beautiful thing that you ever seen
Is even bigger than what we think it means
Reflections in my bloodstreams
it's even bigger than

I woke up in this, I woke up in this
In my skin
I can't wash it away
so you can't take it from me
My brown skin

Real world, big girl meets world
A crazy position, now your dreams
is your mission, huh?
Staring in the mirror, realizing
wish it worked
Now all I wish is for a chance
to give my kids a Ford
I got a family tree
that's worth praising the Lord
Mama looking like the second, whoo!
Look at God
Sister like a soldier, hold it down
Southwest gon' hold it down, uh
I love you, don't forget it
you beautiful Black masterpiece!
Boy, they don't make brothers like you
Uh, make it happen with that Black girl magic
The hat trick off of what we must do

Pardon me, just left a message to the city
Words stuck between my teeth, so gritty
Pay him for each minute I'm seething
A Black girl mixed
with a little bit of Sacagawea
I pocket subpoenas
I swallow my pride and my ego
I wear my flaws on my sleeve
and my skin like a peacoat
I see someone like me ashamed to be
And honestly, I'm really really
I'm fed up wit' it, try to send it up
like a Fedex
I'm wondering what they sayin' next
Can't pretend to not hear it
It's your beauty, they can't have it
It's yours, they can't have it

I'm done with the struggle
I wanna-I just wanna enjoy my life now
and maybe appreciate my skin

I woke up in this, I woke up in this
In my skin
I can't wash it away
so you can't take it from me
My brown skin
Oh, I can't wash it away
No, you can't take it from me
My skin, your skin, yeah!
Oh, I can't wash it away
No, you can't take it from me
Ooh, my skin, ooh, my skin, yeah!

This is something I was born wit'
you know? You can't buy this at a store
so hey
