  • I don't wanna be no skeleton in your closet
    Another rose that you throw 'cause you know that it ain't ok
    Just a name on a stone in a road on a road forgotten
    'Cause I was falling fast now I'm just a dash between two dates

    And I don't wanna be another heart in your graveyard
    In the cold hard dirt that you throw down
    I don't want to watch you drive away in a black car
    To a new bar so you can find another

    Hopeless broken girl in a little black dress
    And you'll take her break her lay her heart to rest
    And please lie here next to me

    Maybe I was naive to believe you'd never hurt me
    But now I know what you hide in your darkest suit and shades
    You put on a show so nobody knows your hands and your shoes are dirty
    I guess you don't need a shovel to dig a grave

    And I don't wanna be another heart in your graveyard
    In the cold hard dirt that you throw down
    I don't want to watch you drive away in a black car
    To a new bar so you can find another

    Hopeless broken girl in a little black dress
    And you'll take her break her lay her heart to rest
    And please lie here next to me yeah

    Gonna go out one night when you see me out
    'Cause the ghost of a broken heart don't stay six feet down
    Yeah you're gonna go out one night when you see me out
    'Cause the ghost of a broken heart don't stay six feet down

    I don't wanna be another heart in your graveyard
    In the cold hard dirt that you throw down
    I don't want to watch you drive away in a black car
    To a new bar so you can find another

    Hopeless broken girl in a little black dress
    And you'll take her break her lay her heart to rest
    And please lie here next to me yeah

    Hopeless broken girl, yeah you'll just
    Take her break her heart, let her rest in peace
    Right here next to me yeah

    I don't want to be another heart
    I don't want to be another heart, in your graveyard babe
    In your graveyard hey Writer/s: Forest Whitehead, Kelsea Ballerini, Shane L McAnally
