  • We're in the homestretch of the hard times
    We took a hard left, but we're alright
    Yeah, life sure can try to put love through it, but
    We built this right, so nothing's ever gonna move it

    When the bones are good, the rest don't matter
    Yeah, the paint could peel, the glass could shatter
    Let it rain 'cause you and I remain the same
    When there ain't a crack in the foundation
    Baby, I know any storm we're facing
    Will blow right over while we stay put
    The house don't fall when the bones are good

    Call it dumb luck, but baby, you and I
    Can't even mess it up, although we both try
    No, it don't always go the way we planned it
    But the wolves came and went and we're still standing

    When the bones are good, the rest don't matter
    Yeah, the paint could peel, the glass could shatter
    Let it rain 'cause you and I remain the same
    When there ain't a crack in the foundation
    Baby, I know any storm we're facing
    Will blow right over while we stay put
    The house don't fall when my bones are good
    When the bones are good

    Bones are good, the rest, the rest don't matter (Baby, it don't really matter)
    Paint could peel, the glass could shatter (Oh, the glass, oh, the glass could shatter)
    Bones are good, the rest, the rest don't matter (Ooh)
    Paint could peel, the glass, the glass could shatter (Yeah)

    When the bones are good, the rest don't matter
    Yeah, the paint could peel, the glass could shatter
    Let it rain (Let it rain, let it rain)
    'Cause you and I remain the same (Woo)
    When there ain't a crack in the foundation (Woo)
    Baby, I know any storm we're facing
    Will blow right over while we stay put
    The house don't fall when the bones are good

    Yeah, ooh Writer/s: Jimmy Robbins, Laura Veltz, Maren Morris
