Bones Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
How can you always be late for your arrival?
You know I'd forgive you every single time
Verse 2
Retreat, retreat, I've fallen at the low tide
Oh, retreat, retreat and meet me by the quayside
Verse 3
In the end all you can hope for
Is the love you felt to equal the pain you've gone through
Verse 4
Are your eyes showing off for mine?
Your face in my hands is everything good I need
Verse 5
The system's put in place, put there to protect us
For you I'd throw a lifeline every time
Verse 6
Oh, retreat, retreat, I've fallen at the low tide
Now retreat, retreat and meet me by the quayside
Verse 7
In the end all you can hope for
Is the love you felt to equal the pain you've gone through
Verse 8
Are your eyes showing off for mine?
Your face in my hands is everything good I need
Verse 9
Bones starved of flesh surround an aching heart
Full of love
Verse 10
Oh, bones, starved of flesh surround your aching heart
Full of love
Verse 11
Bones starved of flesh surround your aching heart
Verse 12
Bones
Verse 13
Oh bones
Verse 14
I watch as your eyes show off for mine
I watch as your eyes show off
I watch as your eyes show off for mine
I watch as your eyes show off
