Bones

Album: Over The Moon (2013)
  • I wish that you could see
    Who I really am
    It sucks being a woman, In love with an unkind man
    'Cause baby I would give you the world,
    In fact, I already do
    And how do you repay that?
    Talk to me like I'm just a regular tramp tryna screw you
    Over, do you even have a clue, what I gave up just to be here
    To serve your ass with steak and beer?

    Baby that's love, baby that's real
    And all I've ever wanted was for your damn arms
    To wrap themselves around me and say

    Hey, girl you're the prettiest thing my eyes have ever seen
    Come and lay your bones down with me
    Come and lay your bones down with me
    Hey girl you're the prettiest thing my heart has ever known
    Come and lay your bones down with me
    Come and lay your bones down with me

    I'm not tryna play the victim
    Don't wanna go head to head
    But boy I shouldn't have to stand in the mirror
    Convincing myself I'm fair
    Baby that's your job to do
    Baby you should think I'm beautiful
    Why you wanna watch the set
    When I'm layin' right next to you in our own room
    I feel like you don't even know I'm there
    But I put a brush through my hair for you
    Run my fingertips over your back real smooth

    'Cause boy I need love
    I don't get enough
    And all I've ever wanted was for your damn arms
    To put themselves around me and say

    Hey, girl you're the prettiest thing my eyes have ever seen
    Come and lay your bones down with me
    Come and lay your bones down with me
    Hey girl you're the prettiest thing my heart has ever known
    Come and lay your bones down with me
    Come and lay your bones down with me

    I look you dead in the eye and say I love you
    In the eye and say I want you
    In the eye and say this is what I'm asking for
    How can you sit and stare at the wall
    Do you even like me at all?
    Start talking 'bout makin' it better
    It ain't that complicated
    I just wanna feel your arms around me, babe
    Please say

    Girl you're the prettiest thing my eyes have ever seen
    Come and lay your bones down with me
    Come and lay your bones down with me
    Hey girl you're the prettiest thing my heart has ever known
    Come and lay your bones down with me
    Come and lay your bones down with me

    Please, please baby
