lyrics

I didn’t grow up wanting, I didn’t waste away
Without that milk and honey
I loved my friends and family, I found the time to pray
I made a little money
And so a sweet, sweet love meant blushing sin
Tuck them bones away and start again

It’s the soundness of the structure of a life you’ve built
And the bridges that you’re burning
I’m not without my fault lines or cheap shots dealt
But there’s a goodness in my yearning
And so a sweet, sweet love comes rushing in
And all this talk of bones and homes begins

Cause I’ve got good bones, and a good home
And the strength of love in me
Do you got good bones, who knows
About our true consistency
We’re brittle little seeds

It’s music, books and movies, and the coffee cups
The art of conversation
You’re bright and sweet and soothing, you got me all filled up
With poor articulation
We’ve got a waist-deep love now rushing in
And my bones are so dense, don’t know if I can swim
