The things that you gave me, the bracelets I wore
Left a scar on my wrist, and my arms are still sore
From ripping your insides and tearing apart
Every little piece of your heart
And when I get done, there will be nothing left
Just a ghost and your bones, I still try to forget
But when I start drinking and shaking my hips
Said, "oh, I'm missing your lips"

I said you need to come home, my skeleton
I'll give you some skin to make you whole again
I said you need to come home, my skeleton
As sure as the wind, your bones come marching in

My skeleton

If I could get you alone, alone and in love
I would take you to places you've only dreamed of
I want to hear your heartbeat say
What you've dying and trying to say
And I'm in love with the sounds I'm making you sing
In the night when you come
Like I am conducting your body through notes you didn't know you could hit
I'll harmonize with it

I said you need to come home, my skeleton
I'll give you some skin to make you whole again
I said you need to come home, my skeleton
As sure as the wind, your bones come marching in

My skeleton

I'm crushing my heart into concrete
Graffiti up the sidewalks on your street
Yeah, its been how I've been

I said you need to come home, my skeleton
I'll give you some skin to make you whole again
I said you need to come home, my skeleton
As sure as the wind, your bones come marching in

I said you need to come home, my skeleton
I'll give you some skin to make you whole again
I said you need to come home, my skeleton
As sure as the wind, your bones come marching in

    General CommentIf you go to one of their shows, they will mostly likely introduce this song like this:

    'this next song is called skeletons, which is basically bones, so technically this song is about boners!'
