I wish that you could see
Who I really am
It sucks being a woman in love with an unkind man
Cause baby, I would give you the world
In fact, I already do
And how do you repay that
Talk to me like I'm just a regular tramp tryna screw...
You over, do you even have a clue
What I gave up just to be here
To serve your ass with steak and beer
Baby, that's love
Baby, that's real
And all I've ever wanted was for your damn arms to wrap themselves around me and say...

Hey girl, you're the prettiest thing my eyes have ever seen
Come and lay your bones down with me
Come and lay your bones down with me
Hey girl, you're the prettiest thing my heart has ever known
Come and lay your bones down with me
Come and lay your bones down with me

I'm not tryna play the victim
Don't wanna go head to head
But boy I shouldn't have to stare in the mirror convincing myself I'm fair
Baby, that's your job to do
Baby, you should think I'm beautiful
Why you wanna watch the set when I'm laying next to you in our own room

I feel like you don't even know I'm there
But I put a brush through my hair for you
Ran my fingertips over your back real smooth
Cause boy I need love
I don't get enough
And all I ever want is for your damn arms to put themselves around me and say...

Hey girl, you're the prettiest thing my eyes have ever seen
Come and lay your bones down with me
Come and lay your bones down with me
Hey girl, you're the prettiest thing my heart has ever known
Come and lay your bones down with me
Come and lay your bones down with me

I look you dead in the eye and say I love you
In the eye and say I want you
In the eye and say this is what I'm asking for
How can you sit and stare at the wall?
Do you even like me at all?
Stop talking 'bout making it better
It ain't that complicated I just wanna feel your arms around me babe
Please say...

Girl, you're the prettiest thing my eyes have ever seen
Come and lay your bones down with me
Come and lay your bones down with me
Hey girl, you're the prettiest thing my heart has ever known
Come and lay your bones down with me
Come and lay your bones down with me

Please, please, baby
It's a woman dream
