David Hermansson – Dirt And Bones lyrics

I saw a ghost when I was seventeen
And she left a scar down in my throat

We were so in love when you were eighteen
And I would've tattooed your name on my face

Your body was my canvas through our sleepless nights
And I painted roses on your chest

You blew your white smoke right into my lungs
So I would never forget your name

And dear I would give you everything
Just to feel your heart beat on my chest oh one last time
And dear, let the silence take you home
And stay with me until you and I are just dirt and bones

I remember your face when I said I'd move away
And I stayed up to watch you sleep

With blackened dreadlocks on your pillowcase
And blood red lips as morning grew

We were gonna get married and have kids some day
I wish I still were so naive

We drove out in the rain to find all of that we'd been looking for
But all we found was someone else

And dear I would never be scared again
If you would hold my hand and rest your lips on my head
Dear, it's been years and I guess we've grown
But stay with me until you and I are just dirt and bones

I ran my fingers down your back
As the sunlight covered the blinds
We rolled around in the roses
And you whispered you'd never die

And dear I think I've called too many times
But it's so damn hard to be left here with my blood full of wine
Dear, I have never been so alone
Please stay with me until you and I are just dirt and bones
