"Skin and Bones" as written by and Cester/hesketh....
I'm gonna ask you so you understand
What you done with your time
Oh think it over baby
Just keep walkin' on
Until you find your man

Don't it feel so bad?
Well I'm used to that
Don't it feel so bad?
Get used to that

Don't push it baby
Please don't go to far
I swear I love ya
Just the way you are

All this justice in my hands
And what you done with your time?
I could stand it if I just kept breathin' oh
What you done with your time?

Don't it feel so bad?
Well I'm used to that
Don't it feel so bad?
Well get used to that

Don't push it baby
Please don't go to far
I swear I love ya
Just the way ya are
Oh skin and bones baby
Yes you are my star
I swear I love ya
Just the way you are

Don't push it baby
Don't push it baby

Don't push it baby
Please don't go to far
I swear I love ya
Just the way ya are
Oh skin and bones baby
Yes you are my star
I swear I love ya
Just the way ya are
Don't push it baby.

    General CommentTHis song confuses me...yes, he's telling a girl not to become anorexic, he loves her (the way she is)...but what I don't get is, does this girl love him back??? I mean, no doubt he loves HER....

    "just keep walkin' on
    until you find your man"

    "Don't feel so bad
    Well, I'm used to that"

    General Commenti think in this song he is saying, don't change for me, i like you how you are. its a pretty basic concept.

    definitely one of my favorites off of the new album.

    General Commenti agree that he's saying don't change for me, i love you the way you are. but i also think that there's more with the whole "skin and bones" bit. he seems to be talking about some sort of eating disorder that his girl has. he's worried about her and says "don't push it baby" and "i love just the way you are" to get her to feel better about herself and get better.

    General Commentskin and bones- anorexia. come on, look at everybody today. they feel they need to be perfect and he's saying don't because he will love her anyway.

    don't push it, don't go too far he says. exactly.

    General CommentI agree with all of the comments so far (the whole eating disorder idea, mainly anorexia). And like:

    Well, think it over baby
    just keep walkin' on
    until you find your man

    If a guy doesn't accept her the way she is she should look for another one because there are plenty of guys out there.

    General CommentI like the idea of a boyfriend's point of view on an eating disorder.

    I've struggled with maintaining a healthy weight for years, and it's just the kind of thing I wish someone would say to me.
