Have you heard the song "Skin" by Rascal Flatts?

I just heard it on the radio in my car a while ago and the lyrics brought tears to my eyes. So sad, yet sweet! Here are the lyrics for anyone who is interested:

Rascal Flatts - Skin Lyrics

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 see waits with her mother and dad
and Flips through an old magazine
Til the nurse with the 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 were gonna try
It's just been approved
It's the strongest there is
I think we caught it in time

Sarah Beth closes her eyes
and She dreams she's dancing
Around and around without any cares
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
Cause 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 cruellest 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 cares
and her very first love was holding her close
and the soft wind is blowing her hair

It's quarter to seven
That boy's at the door
And her daddy ushers him in
And 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 cares
And her very first true love is holding her close
For a moment she isn't scared...

It is a hidden track on one of their CD's. I gotta say as a manly man that one brought tears to my eyes also.

I have...It is hands down the best song ever. From a mom who has a daughter that has gone through something similar (the medical part), it really gets ya. I get teary eyed every time I hear it.

In a #10 sort of way?
Sometimes it looks like a toddler sits at my desk at work
If you were to walk into my house and yell "Stinky!", everyone would answer!

I've never heard it but it looks like a tear jerker (& it doesn't take much for me).

I met a sweet young girl 2 years ago who is now going through a bone marrow transplant. She is in college. I think they had to shave her head ( opposed to losing it to chemo, but I'm not sure) and her younger brother shaved his too. He's going to keep shaving it til hers grows back. Sweet thing for a teenaged guy to do for his older sister.

Thanks for sharing these lyrics.

Yes, I have a cried a few times to that song. My boyfriend's younger sister just went through all of the chemo and hair loss due to leukemia and it always reminds me of her. They did do a great job on that song.

I LOVE that song! I was at a concert this summer when they played it for the first time and it got a HUGE response from the crowd. I still get choked up every time I hear it.

It is a beautiful song, 3 women in our office have either gone through chemo or are currently going through chemo and have lost their hair.
The first time I heard the song, I was driving through our development, I had to pull over, I was crying so hard I could not drive.

That really is sweet! She is lucky to have such a caring brother. He must make her feel better even though she is sick!
