I fell asleep with the lights on, babe

I heard my heart beat slow

I was afraid to let my dreams out

For fear they’d never grow

Magic marker washable heartache

Is all I seem to know
So drink my tears they go down easy

It's your favorite taste I know

We’ve got away with all these things

And they can’t take what life won't bring

And it eats away at all our sins
Until
 bones become the only things
Bones become the only things

Let's rearrange our aggressive minds
And freeze them in the snow

I see through the hurt and the lies

I started to go cold

But am I washed up, you said

"Babe just clean up"

And I feel
 strung, strung, strung, strung, strung, strung, strung out

But am I washed up, you said

"Babe just clean up"

And I feel
 strung, strung, strung, strung, strung, strung, strung out

We got away with all these things

They can’t take what life can't bring

It eats away at all our sins
Until
 bones become the only things
Bones become the only things
Bones become the only things
Until
 bones become the only things, the only things

I’ve got a man who lives inside

He lives inside my freedom

It’s a warm place, safe place to hide 

Call on him when you need him

I’ve got a man who lives inside

He lives inside my freedom

It’s a warm place, safe place to hide 

Call on him when you need him

Bones become the only things
Bones become the only things
Until bones become the only things
Until bones become the only things, the only thing
