Terra Naomi - Flesh for Bones

I’m sitting here frozen in this bed I made, considering the weight of the bricks I laid, now that I’m through.
One by one, sealed every crack that I could slip between to find my way back…to find my way back home to you.

And I’m burning all my bridges with these matches I light, to illuminate my path to what is right.
Even if it’s true what they say: that you can’t go back home once you’ve cast it away, I would still have left tonight.

You know, baby, I would be with you if I could, to trade my flesh for your bones, I would, I would I would I would I would.
You know, baby, I would be with you if I could, to trade my flesh for your bones, I would, I would I would I would I would.

I carry with me on my way, all the ghosts of all the love that I let slip away. The heavy weight of promises made, if I could exonerate, I might just lift off today.

I’m burning all my bridges with these matches I light, to illuminate my path to what is right.
Even if it’s true what they say: that you can’t go back home once you’ve cast it away, then I would still have left tonight.

You know, baby, I would be with you if I could, to trade my flesh for your bones, I would, I would I would I would I would.
You know, baby, I would be with you if I could, to trade my flesh for your bones, I would, I would I would I would I would.

I traced your memory from my mind.. every song I write is just a wish to find you, near or far, through all the tears and all the time that I’ve been running blind.. I still ain’t got to where you are.

I’m burning all my bridges with these matches I light, to illuminate my path to what is right.
Even if it’s true what they say: that you can’t go back home once you’ve cast it away, then I would still have left tonight.

You know, baby, I would be with you if I could, to trade my flesh for your bones, I would, I would I would I would I would.
You know, baby, I would be with you if I could, to trade my flesh for your bones, I would, I would I would I would I would.
