I am the founder of the first skin picking support group in Germany. As a non-native English speaker I do not understand all the lyrics and the transcript on youtube is - so far I can see - full of mistakes. Do you have a written version that you could send me for translation? Or could you take a look at my attempt of transcribing ... which follows in a few minutes?
Hey! I just took another listen to “Crooks of my Elbows” and transcribed the lyrics more accurately, so if you look at the YouTube page now ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3aPxNikIcA ) I can guarantee that they’re right. I can think of two sources for inaccuracy: One, the lyrics were written before the song was recorded. During the recording, I improvised and modified some lyrics in small ways, so that they didn’t quite match the written version from earlier. Two, the grammar and punctuation is deliberately improper for style purposes; let me know if you still have trouble understanding the updated version and I will get back to you! —Dylan
