Ooooo,
In my bones,
I burrowed you for the winter,
But it's not as if I didn't want the cold,
I just couldn't bear to face it on my own.


Ooooo,
In my skin,
You crawled in once and you've been there ever since,
Though I've tried to cut you out,
Shaving seven layers deep,
My life without you just won't keep.


And even though you're a part of me,
I'm not a part of you,
The worst part is,
There's not a damn thing I can do.

So to the day when I'm old and gray,
And to fate I'll soon comply,
Swear I couldn't make you stay, if I tried.


Ooooo,
In my blood,
You filled me up and I thought that I might flood.
But when the gates, they closed again,
I was sinking on my own,
As I watched the yellow street lamps guide you home.


And even though you're a part of me,
I'm not a part of you,
The worst part is,
There's not a damn thing I can do.

So to the day when I'm old and gray,
And to fate I'll soon comply,
Swear I couldn't make you stay, if I tried,
No, I couldn't make you stay, if I tried.


Ooooo,
In my soul,
Used to pray, but now I take control,
So if ever you would find,
Truth in all I've said,
Well, come on, make me home, and I'll rest your head.


Cause even though you're a part of me,
I'm not a part of you,
The worst part is,
There's not a damn thing I can do.

So to the day when I'm old and gray,
And to fate I'll soon comply,
Swear I couldn't make you stay, if I tried,
No, I couldn't make you stay, if I tried.
Well, you swore that you loved me,
But now it's clear that you don't want me,
And I couldn't make you stay, though I tried.
