Bones


Leave my bones to the Atlantic

And the grave will understand

That I’ve taken up the space

That I was given as a man

Cause Christ I wouldn’t know the difference

If you left me on the floor

 

Oh these restless nights

You hold the book and I’ll turn the page

You brought the candle to my flame

And helped me burn it all away

And I can’t be asked

To sell my soul for better days

I’ll shed my flesh so we won’t sink

And carry you along the way

I’ll carry you along the way

 

And you left me with my eyes closed

Dreaming by the water's edge

While every wave holds you instead

And you can talk about the glory

And the hardship all the same

So leave my bones to the Atlantic

And I will carry you along the wa
