You're as sharp as a knife and you fit like a glove
That is no way to live, that is no way to love
Full of fear in your skin and the weakness in giving in

    Everytime I listened to Salt Skin I felt like it was so darker yet so natural for Ellie... then she gave us Halcyon.

    chorus really wrecks it and what is with that random mashed together piano instrumental break? it really detracts from the loveliness of the verses. and the wolf noise at the end is annoying.

    Seriously wish she had more songs akin to this - Halcyon material had its satisfyingly atmospheric moments, but not of this calibre. This song was probably also the highlight of seeing her live... not only was it incredible on the artist/performance side of things, but she also pulled off her sleeved top and started the famous Ellie hips/belly moves. Goddamn this woman can bring the sexy.
