Natasha Bedingfield – Pirate Bones lyrics

What if I squeezed myself into any shape
And I still don't fit
What if I bend myself so much that I break
And I can't mend it
What if I burned so bright that the fire goes out
And I can't stay lit
What's the point in it
I could get good at crying crocodiles tears
Just to get along
I could carry on telling you what you want to hear
Til my voice is gone
But if I finally get to the place that I think is home
And I don't belong
What's the point in it
Wheres the benefit
When I'm gaining all but I'm losing it

It's not worth having
If it's too much to hold
It can dig so deep
That your left with a hole
Does the energizer with a bag full of gold

Don't wanna end up like pirate bones
What I thought was treasures just a pile of stones
I might have to judge, rather then be lying alone
Just a pile of pirate bones

Uh yeah oh oh
If I forfeit my soul it ain't worth having
Uh yeah oh oh
If it's something I stole it ain't worth having

What if I stake everything I am on a dream
And it's counterfeit
If I reach the end that justifies the means
Could I live with it
And if it's true that I have to much of any good thing
Can only make me sick
What's the point in it
Wheres the benefit
When I'm gaining all, but I'm losing it
Oooh

It's not worth having
If it's too much to hold
It can dig so deep
That your left with a hole
Does the energizer with a bag full of gold

Don't wanna end up like pirate bones
What I thought was treasures just a pile of stones
I might have to judge, rather then be lying alone
Pirate bones
Uh yeah oh oh
If I forfeit my soul it ain't worth having
Uh yeah oh oh
If it's something I stole it ain't worth having

It's not worth that much to me
If loosing out is what it means
This way may shallow victory
Is empty
Empty
It's just not worth the prize
It's only a fools paradise
If it's draining every drop of life
Til I'm dry
Like.

Pirate Bones!

(Its not worth having) it's not worth having
If it's too much to hold
It can dig so deep
That your left with a hole
Does the energizer with a bag full of gold

Don't wanna end up like pirate bones
What I thought was treasures just a pile of stones
I might have to judge, rather then be lying alone
Just a pile of pirate bones

If I forfeit my soul it ain't worth having
Ooh ooh
If it's something I stole it ain't worth having

Pirate bones
(What I thought was treasures just a pile of... Stones)
Mmmmm

Pirate Bones.

    Ahahahahha "does the energizer". Waterlily40 is right btw, please change it. Because I love this song. And I'd hate it if it stayed wrong. ;(
    I love how she used 'pirate bones' to show that we always see a bones and not care who the hell it is. Just shoes how meaningless it all seems when we die. Its better to do good deeds than changing your outlook! Don't ever lose sight of what is really important. Just be yourself, love yourself. Cheers! ^^
