"Flesh For Bones" as written by and Terra Naomi Englebardt....
I?m sitting here frozen in this bed I made
Considering the weight of the bricks I laid now that I?m through
One by one sealed every crack that I could slip between to find my way back
Find my way back home to you

And I?m burning all my bridges
With these matches I light
To illuminate my path to what is right
And even if it?s true what they say
That you can?t go back home
Once you?ve cast it away
I would still have left tonight

You know baby I would be with you if I could
To trade my flesh for your bones
I would, I would, I would, I would, I would?

I carry with me on my way
All the ghosts of all the love
That I let slip away
The heavy weight of promises made
That if I could exonerate
I might just lift off today

And I?m burning all my bridges
With these matches I light
To illuminate my path to what is right
And even if it?s true what they say
That you can?t go back home
Once you?ve cast it away
I would still have left tonight

You know baby I would be with you if I could
To trade my flesh for your bones
I would, I would, I would, I would, I would?

I chased your memory from my mind
But every song I write is just a wish to find you, near or far
Through all the tears and all the time
That I been running blind
I still ain?t got to where you are

And I?m burning all my bridges
With these matches I light
To illuminate my path to what is right
And even if it?s true what they say
That you can?t go back home
Once you?ve cast it away
I would still have left tonight

You know baby I would be with you if I could
To trade my flesh for your bones
I would, I would, I would, I would, I would?
