‘Furniture’ sung by Amy Studt, music video

Haunting, fragile and intense… touches me to the bone! Makes me wonder… why we cause harm to each other, the earth and all life? Why don’t we love each other or ourselves? Will we be able to collectively move beyond these destructive patterns? I know we can! I really like the lines, ‘behind the skin, my divinity, behind the skin, my only sanctuary.’ The skin, the bone… a vehicle… a temple. Behind the skin… Soul… our Divinity, our sanctuary… who ‘we truly are’. We move toward the ultimate… conscious merging of skin and Soul… self actualization… enlightenment or Divine Union. Works like this song help us see, understand, know… remember right action… awake our compassionate nature.  Thanks Amy for creating a wonderful song and for the reminder.

‘Furniture’ lyrics:

I am only flesh and bones, Splintered glass and tattered clothes,
behind the skin, my fragility, behind the skin, a skeletal impracticality,
I am only pieces of you, held together with paper glue,
behind the skin, my divinity, behind the skin, my only sanctuary.
You can lean on me, have a drink on me, leave your mark all over me, paint the outside ’till it smiles, you can eat off me, rest your head on me, press yourself on top of me, kick the back until its quiet.
All in all I’m just furniture, Just another piece taking you one step further from the perfect living room set,
All in all I’m just furniture, In these 4 walls that hold me, keep me safe under sound and bare within its grip.
My wooden heart it sings no more, This dress I wear becomes the floor, behind the skin, a living, breathing thing, behind the skin, a place you’ve never been.
You can lean on me, have a drink on me, leave your mark all over me, paint the outside ’till it smiles, you can eat off me, rest your head on me, press yourself on top of me, kick the back until its quiet.
All in all I’m just furniture, Just another piece taking you one step further from the perfect living room set,
All in all I’m just furniture, In these 4 walls that hold me, keep me safe under sound and bare within its grip.
I am only flesh and bones, Splintered glass and tattered clothes
