Gilby Clarke – Skin & Bones lyrics

The last time I fell I left a piece of myself I was so broken
Up, I should've stayed down Heaven can't you help me I'm
Losing this war I don't wanna die young from with just battle
Keep the devil out of my soul; c'mon and save me From a
Heart of stone Tell the Lord he can take me now, I'm a shell
Of a man Just skin and bones
I had a little sister who could drink up a storm If the liquor
Didn't kill her she'd be twenty-one The good times, bad
Times can't remember them all Must have been the thunder
And alcohol
The skeletons in the closet keep me awake at night The
Thing that really scares me are the monsters I live with
