“Skin”

Sarah Beth is scared to death,
To hear what the doctor will say.
She hasn’t been well,
Since the day that she fell,
And the bruise, it just won’t go away.
So she sits and she waits, with her mother and dad,
And flips through an old magazine,
‘Til the nurse with a smile,
Stands at the door,
And says, ‘Will you please come with me?’
Sarah Beth is scared to death,
‘Cause the doctor just told her the news.
Between the red cells and white,
Something’s not right,
But we’re gonna take care of you.
Six chances in ten, it won’t come back again,
With the therapy we’re gonna try.
It’s just been approved,
It’s the strongest there is,
And I think we caught it in time.
Sarah Beth closes her eyes.
She dreams she’s dancing,
Around and around, without any care,
And her very first love is holding her close,
And the soft wind is blowing her hair.
Sarah Beth is scared to death,
As she sits, holding her mom.
It would be a mistake,
For someone to take,
A girl with no hair to the prom.
For just this morning, right there on her pillow,
Was the cruelest of any surprise,
And she cried when she gathered it all in her hands,
The proof that she couldn’t deny.
Sarah Beth closes her eyes.
And she dreams she’s dancing,
Around and around, without any care,
And her very first love was holding her close,
And the soft wind is blowing her hair.
It’s quarter on seven, that boy is at the door,
Her Daddy ushers him in.
When he takes off his cap, they all start to cry.
‘Cause this morning where his hair had been,
Softly, she touches just skin.
They go dancing,
Around and around, without any care,
And her very first true love is holding her close,
And for a moment, she isn’t scared.
