Cos they came out of the sunshine
Flowers nestled in their hair
See they've been stumbling on the backstreets honey
I won't give in, no I won't give in
'Cos my love's not a limit

He got the money man he got the fold lines
But he got the problems banging on his door
My love's not a limit

So won't you keep from the beggars of bones
For the night comes to bring them home
If they manage to keep safe skin
He'll call for her
She'll call for him

They got the taste for blood again
It's their salivating lips just won't leave them to sleep
And my love's not a limit

So won't you keep from the beggars of bones
For the night comes to bring them home
If they manage to keep safe skin
He'll call for her
She'll call for him

So won't you keep from the beggars of bones
For the night comes to bring them home
If they manage to keep safe skin
He'll call for her

    General CommentGot to admit, I was shocked when I searched for Boy & Bear and couldn't find anything on here so I took it upon myself to create their page. They are such a beautiful band, stunning vocal harmonies and delicate instrumentals. What more could you want?

    General CommentI absolutely love Boy & Bear. A lot of people have been commenting that they sound like a fusion of Fleet Foxes and Mumford and Sons, but I also love both of those bands? So I see no issue :) One of my fave bands and I really thought they were already big, but they were given such a shit stage you could barely hear them. Poor guys. Their music is amazing, and sooner or later, everyone is going to know about them :)

    My InterpretationIt's talking about men who obtain things in life solely in the name of greed and selfishness. Doing anything to persuade and charm, but they are sleepless at night because the girl is just another object/goal to obtain where they always want more. When the writer loves it has no measure and no limits that must be met. For him the girl is not a goal or something to maintain. She's a partner... At least that's what I see in the lyrics.
