I'd like to think it's all a dream -
Someone please come and rescue me -
Don't want to see my family torn -
Left me with a soul without my lovely bones -
We are alive tonight -
I am free, free for the rest of my life and -
Me it's out of my control oh -
Without my lovely bones -
I sit and watch my friends today -
I'm gone and wish that I could stay -
I guess this is how it's supposed to be -
Left me with a soul without my lovely bones -
We are alive tonight -
I am free, free for the rest of my life and -
Me it's out of my control oh -
Without my lovely bones -
As I was thinking forgot to swallow, a burning feeling about tomorrow -
And I finally stop to find it written on your face -
You did what you could for me, you did what you could for me -
I sit and watch it all go by -
My father wants to make it right -
The secrets buried deep inside of me -
Left me with a soul without my lovely bones -
We are alive tonight -
I am free, free for the rest of my life and -
Me it's out of my control oh -
Without my lovely bones -
We are alive tonight -
I am free, free for the rest of my life and -
Me it's out of my control oh -
Without my lovely bones -
Without my lovely bones -
Without my lovely bones

    General Commentok wait i think i get it. i think its like freeing yourself from ur body type of thing. i think bones represents boundaries type of thing.

    General CommentI would love to know what this song is about
    in the video he looks like he is going to cry when he sings it. and the lyrics are "I wish that this was all a dream" not "I'd like to think it's all a dream"

    General CommentThis song is about leaving your family, the rare one that fights all the time, parents have split up. Him leaving his friends, his band. Lovely bones refers to his happiness.

    Josh Todd expresses very well what his life is about. "You be happy and everything will fall into place." Josh Todd
