"Head Above the Deep" è il secondo EP di Her Skin e parla di lunghi inverni, partenze, silenzi, e delle lunghe pause del cuore. Immerso in atmosfere malinconiche e sognanti, racconta di come a volte si riescono ad allontanare i fantasmi per rimanere un po' più a galla, con la "testa sopra al profondo".
"Head Above the Deep" è un modo per non annegare. È stato registrato, mixato e masterizzato da Bruno Mari nella sua mansarda.
Esce nel Maggio del 2016 per Tempura Dischi.
Tutte le canzoni sono state scritte e suonate da Her Skin.
Her Skin è Sara Ammendolia.

Track Name: The Colder Months
Birds are singing in the sky
even through the proudest storm
The hills are held in cordial light
and the things they never told

A morning haze in lonely days
through the window by your side
Your knees are shaking and you say
you found raindrops in my eyes

Inner choosing and several large gins
one of these days we’ll figure out what we’ve been
I’m glad that we can whisper for a day
while we wait here in our cold and in our pain

It’s easier to count the days
now that winter is gone
Pain and fear and cold erased
but I’m not coming home
Track Name: Heartbeats
I’m so claustrophobic
so I took the last train home
You know I’m not a fighter
I just need some time alone

All I know is you can feel
the better human you can be

I’m so claustrophobic
but my heart keeps pumping blood
The things that we remembered
I don’t remember anymore
Track Name: New Orleans
We were driving round and round
to see what we would find
We drove all across this town
not caring about what we felt inside

Meet me in memory
uninspired, like you used to be
Meet me in memory
and find your way in New Orleans

Now you’re gone across the country
I asked you to never go away
The stars here are shining humbly
the wind howls and I feel that summer air

Meet me in memory
uninspired, like you used to be
Meet me in memory
and settle down in New Orleans
Track Name: Head Above the Deep
The ghosts between us now are standing still
in the space between the words we need to fill

You start a war, it’s slowly getting cold
16 hours and 19 on the floor

I watched the sun go down today
the lights go out while I’m sailing away

You say I search for something I won’t find
but my head is above the deep and I feel fine
Track Name: Softest Skin
All these things I used to have
back to shore, out from land
and your coat on my floor when
you had to leave as you said
I had the softest skin you touched

I’m trying not to be distracted
by the way that you just acted
by the things that I avoid like
scenes from a different life ‘cause
the things we remember are just gone

Does mother know
where you go at nigh and if you
sing along into the dark
Get me out
of here in time before you try to
make me disappear again
Track Name: Cut Out the Flowers
I swear one day
I’ll kiss you until morning and you’ll say
try to make me disappear again
You could be
my favorite thing to lose as I swim
back to shore away from you

I’ll sit under the silhouette
of trees and lace like the day we met
and you’ll bring your flowers home
they’re not for me they’re for somebody you love

When you think of me
I hope I’m dressed in flowers as I
dance around this little room
You promised me
the sea and I will not forget but
I hope you’re happy without me
