Old bones don't sleep
Old bones don't sleep
Old bones don't sleep
They yearn to be once again dressed
In the tears we weep
In the tears we weep
In the tears we weep

She remembered the sun
From the world long ago
In the time before darkness
And wander

She soon become bone
From the fish and the foam
In the fullness of time
We forgot her

Old bones don't sleep
Old bones don't sleep
Old bones don't sleep
They yearn to be once again dressed
In the tears we weep
In the tears we weep
In the tears we weep

A fisherman's line through
A hole in the ice
Caught the strangest of fish
Where she drifted

Salvation came down
From the world far above
And the skeleton woman
Was lifted

She buried her teeth
In the hem of his coat
As the fisherman tried
To run past her

In terror he fled
Through the deepening gloom
With the rattle of bones
Chasing after

He cowered all night
Through the wind's longing howl
From the monster he'd led
To his home

But dawn showed the man
That the creature he feared
Was twine all entangled
In bone

In pity he wept
And the tears trickled down
From his eyes to the bones
He regarded

From their heat she wove life
And a young woman's form
With a cry was her silence
Discarded

After ages uncounted
Of patience and hope
Was the skeleton woman
Rewarded

Old bones don't sleep
Old bones don't sleep
Old bones don't sleep
They yearn to be once again dressed
In the tears we weep
In the tears we weep
In the tears we weep
