The Avett Brothers – Skin And Bones lyrics

It's the skin and bones that keep me on the road
The shoulder blades of a beast that wants my soul
Wondering lonely and scared
I live the tragedy I share
It's quick to drag you in but hard to shake
It gives but doesn’t match how much it takes
Growing stronger and loud
I lived it but now I’m wanting out

I built the fence I hung the sign
Blood red letters say keep in mind
Of where I’ve been so don't come in
How long can you live in shame
And drop a life long curse on your own last name
The trouble is I'm used to it

It's the questions that keep me turning back
To see those rumors turn to fact
Wondering lonely and scared
I live the tragedy I share

I built the fence I hung the sign
Wine red letters say keep in mind
Where we’ve been so don't come in
How long can we live in shame
And drop a life long curse on our own last names
The trouble is we’re used to it
The trouble is we’re used to it
The trouble is we’re used to it

It's the tin and the board that keeps me going home
But it's who I am that wont let me alone
Growing stronger and loud
Growing stronger and loud
Growing stronger and loud
