Written about the time Sawyer, regrettably, stole his best friend's girl.

Fun fact: Joel had written the riff 3 years before this song was written.

Lyrics

Simple love for a simple mind
I still need you all the same
Steal your love with my Judas kiss
there's no way to forget my name
With this taste, on your lips
Tell me I'm the only one you see
My brother's bleeding
And, the blood is on my hands
You never told him, but you wanted me

I've got you
In my skin
You are my sin
I've got you again
Here we are again

I'll trade what was dead anyway
Just to steal you away my dear
You and me babe, we're one in the same
And you can't change what happened here

It couldn't work, but I had to try girl
You're in my mind both day and night
What's done is done and it's half past time
This lover's blood ain't just no crime

I've got you
In my skin
You are my sin
I've got you again
Here we are again

I'll trade what was dead anyway
Just to steal you away my dear
You and me babe, we're one in the same
And you can't change what happened here

And every time that I look at you babe
I see his face in the space where you should've been
And every time that I look at myself
I feel the rage and the pain that I could've helped

I've got you
In my skin
You are my sin
I've got you again
Here we are again
