Skin and Bones - Lyrics

Tracing up the back of your neck
Hands upon your crown
The leaves, the birds all murmuring
The drifting summer sounds
Through the screen a hawk is holding high over the peaks
Then you'll finally turn and smile and give your mind to me
Every breath is like a burst as day sings down the dark
The creek will not be quiet, begging us to go too far

We're close, so close
We're nose to nose
Your voice is low
My love, each note
We kill the cold without our clothes
It's you and me in skin and bones

I want you to be with me when we figure out what's real
The ones inside who cannot manufacture what they feel
I want you to be with me when we find out who is fake
The records we should listen to, the ones to throw away
I want you to be with when you know that I am wrong
I want you to be with me through the stoves(?) of summer stones

We're close, so close
We're nose to nose
Your voice is low
My love, each note
We kill the cold without our clothes
It's you and me in skin and bones
Skin and bones
Skin and bones
Skin and bones
Skin and bones

We can breathe mistakes
We can still bleed hope
All yours, all mine, all folds are always open
When a winter's break hasn't seen first light
All yours, all mine, all folds
Our eyes will raise the dawn

The humming wings out from the field
Seems nothing can hold back
Tracing down your shoulders as they rise and then collapse
Every breath is like our first
As day sings down the dark
The creek will not be quiet, begging us to go too far

We're close, so close
We're nose to nose
Your voice is low
My love, each note
We kill the cold without our clothes
It's you and me in skin and bones
Skin and bones
Skin and bones
Skin and bones
Skin and bones
