About the artist

Robin Leigh is one of the South’s most captivating and intense performers, bringing to stage an eclectic fusion of alternative acoustic pop/country rock, vivid lyrical poetry and soulful vocals. A musical menagerie of emotionally-vibrant lyrics and raw acoustic angst, Robin Leigh exudes sensuality and mind-shattering intensity. Ear-candy hooks, dynamic melodies and a passionate style deliver expressions of honest sonic imagery.
From moody ballads to rhythmic rockers, her lyrics are windows to the soul - incantations of life, love and the human condition.
Compared to such performers as Melissa Etheridge, Sheryl Crow, Indigo Girls, Natalie Merchant and Aimee Mann, RL is breaking through the constructs of girl rock and enchanting audiences with a her provocative, edgy musical poetry.

Lyrics

Under My Skin – Written by Robin Leigh © 2005

Chorus: Under my skin is where we begin the digging in
Off of the cuff is never enough to show you’re really in

I can feel your heartbeat break down the door
Eyes are wide open, clothes on the floor
Now I see through you, an elegant stare
Making me shiver to the ends of my dare

Chorus: Under my skin is where we begin the digging in
Off of the cuff is never enough to show you’re really in

You know that I want you
Make me confess, I’ve lost all my senses
My spirit’s undressed
I give you my heart, you take all the rest
All of your teasing makes me a wreck

Chorus:

(Lead Guitar over verse)

I know who I am, don’t need to pretend
Taking the honey away from the hive
Paying my dues playing the blues
Making the cut that keeps us alive
Take your excuses
Your celibate nooses
Wrapped up in versions of shades of the truth . . .
I’d rather be blue
Thinking of you . . .

Chorus X 2
Are you really in, are you really in?
