Ryan Caraveo - In My Own Skin lyrics

Oh, I just feel like running away Oh, I just feel like running Oh, I just feel like running away Oh, I just feel like running Grandma told Mama Spanish is a dirty language "Just say 'hello,' don't say 'hola' cause that sh** is dangerous" Brown-skinned strangers, everybody see you as less Suppress where you from if you wanna be a success Twelfth grader, high school when she birthed my older brother She never learned, so he can't learn the culture from his mother And we had different daddies, mine was raised in Oklahoma His parents barely know him, but he had no control of His living situation, or his lack of family love He never learned the heritage that's swimming in his blood So all I know is he's the reason why my skin is light Sometimes I lay awake and wonder who I am at night Yeah, they call me Caraveo, that's my stepdad's name He treat me like his own, so I kept my stepdad's name But he's adopted, so he doesn't know either And I feel like such an outsider... In my own skin (Oh, I just feel like running away) In my own skin (Oh, I just feel like running) In my own skin (Oh, I just feel like running away) In my own skin (Oh, I just feel like running) (I feel like such an outsider...) In my own skin (in my own skin) (Oh, I just feel like running away) In my own skin (Oh, I just feel like running) In my own skin (Oh, I just feel like running away) In my own skin, yeah, yeah (Oh, I just feel like running) City after city, used to hop around Actin' out in cla**, tryna find some common ground If I can make 'em laugh, maybe I can make a friend Attention only cost attention, I'll take it then I'm only here for twelve months and then I say goodbye So by the time we build a bond we gotta break the tie So it's only natural that I started skipping steps Tryna figure out love as I get undressed, there I was Bidding thee farewell to my virginity at twelve Insistent with women, I been finicky and frail I'm closed off and I keep my feelings to myself 'cause Somewhere I learned that's what it means to be a male Got good at telling people what they really wanna hear So I k** it every quarter: I'm the salesmen of the year But I still can't make myself proud Man, I just wanna peel myself out... of my own skin Of my own skin, feel like an outsider in my own skin In my own skin, in my own skin Man, I feel like such an outsider In my own skin (Oh, I just feel like running away) In my own skin (Oh, I just feel like running) In my own skin (Oh, I just feel like running away) In my own skin (Oh, I just feel like running) In my, in my (Oh, I just feel like running away) In my, in my (Oh, I just feel like running) In my, in my (Oh, I just feel like running away) In my, in my (Oh, I just feel like running) In my, in my In my, in my In my, in my In my, in my
