"Truth And Bone" as written by and Heather Nova....
Sometime I can feel you breathing into me.
And these hands I can feel them tugging at my sleeve,
I move through the day in the rhythms that I've known.
I've got this crazy dream of stripping down to truth and bone.

All of it, all of it, all of it stripped down.
All of it, all of it, all of it, to truth and bone.

My mouth is full of secrets I'm too afraid to tell.
My body's full of longing for you to know me well.
I move through the day in the rhythms that I've known.
I've got this crazy dream of stripping down to thruth and bone.

All of it, all of it, all of it stripped down
All of it, all of it, all of it, to truth and bone.

I think of sinking in way over my shoulders,
Let the water, the water take me in and I
Need you to cut through to where I'm hidden,
I'm awkward and I'm too polite and I want
Two stars for arms like orion I could
Breathe in and breathe in and breathe out.
If I could only lose myself
I would lose myself in you,
I move trough the day in the rhythms that I've known.
I've got this crazy dream of stripping down to truth and bone.

All of it, all of it, all of it stripped down
All of it, all of it, all of it, to truth and bone.

    General Commentoyster is so pure and unadulterated. its like perfet discriptions of various moods.

    this song means inspriation & youth & freedom & want & need and yet she's almost aware of her naivity.

    General CommentI fell in love with this song the first time i heard it! Its from OYSTER-probably one of her darkest albums, its really nice to have this track in the middle.

    At the time I heard it I felt exactly this; to be stripped down to truth and bone, its a really beautiful thought.
    the coda sings well too.

    General CommentAn absolutely beautiful song. I saw Heather perform this song live last November, and there was something nostalgic about hearing it again. She just has this raw talent that is irrestable to anyone who wants something different from the mainstream. This song is just that - that nervousness of exposing your hidden passions and aspirations. Heather Nova is an inspiration to us all.
