Lyrics

Skin and Bones

Written By: Britney Redpath

VS. 1:
I’ve been dancing like I am happy,
But I’m not happy. It’s something you don’t know.
I’ve been singing like there is meaning
In these words, but the bones are starting to show.

CHORUS:
‘Cause there’s nothing in this body
But bones beneath the skin.
And you think that what you feel I feel,
But you cannot see the state I’m in.
The cavity in my chest needs filled
With something besides this cold, dark, shriveled heart.
You’ll be the first to know when it finally falls apart

VS. 2:
Love me. Whatever you do just love me.
Baby, love me, and maybe someday I’ll love you in return.
But not today, can’t promise nothing not today.
Oh, not today, not until the fire starts to burn.

CHORUS:
‘Cause there’s nothing in this body
But bones beneath the skin.
And you think that what you feel I feel
But you cannot see the state I’m in.
The cavity in my chest needs filled
With something besides this cold, dark, shriveled heart.
You’ll be the first to know when it finally falls apart.

VS. 3:
I’m sorry. I’m so sorry.
I never meant to harm you.
Now I am sorry for everything I’ve done.

BRIDGE:
Ooh, I wish I could be better.
And ooh, I’ve got so far to go.
Ooh, but your goodness makes me better.
Makes me good. Makes the beauty in me grow.

CHORUS:
‘Cause there’s nothing in my body
But bones beneath my skin.
And you think that what you feel I feel,
But you cannot see the state I’m in.
The cavity in my chest needs filled
With something besides this cold, dark, shriveled heart.
You’ll be the first to know when it finally falls apart.

You’ll be the first to know when the light shines through the dark.
