It's My Brown Skin

from by Helado Negro

/

lyrics

My skin glows in the dark shines in the light 
its the color that holds me tight

My brown me is the shade thats just for me
I’m never not missing anything but me.

Cuz i love you
and i can’t miss anything but you
your stuck on me
and all this time I’m inside you

Our time together we grow
we stretch and show
its tough as it goes and it won’t rub off of you


There’s friends of similar shades
of different ways
who feel the same way don’t ever forget them

its your brown skin
it will keep you safe
it will keep you safe
it will keep you safe
it will keep you safe
it will keep you safe
it will keep you safe
it will keep you safe
