ZZ Ward – Bag Of Bones lyrics

[Verse 1]
Baby, you're my Bourbon honey
Baby, you're my Cherry Coke
My mystery man from Montgomery
My favorite licorice rope, yeah

[Pre-Chorus]
I never needed nobody
I hear your train on the tracks
You snuck right in, caught you, caught it [?]
Now I'm falling in love, and it's too late to fall back

[Chorus]
What should I do when you leave me?
What should I do when you're gone?
If you ain't next to me, darlin'
Oh, then I'm nothing but a bag of bones

[Hook]
Ooh-wah, ooh-wah, ooh-wah, ooh, ooh
Ooh-wah, ooh-wah, ooh-wah, ooh, ooh

[Verse 2]
Baby, when you are beside me
It's like we're walking on stars
Baby, when you are inside me
You know we light up the dark

[Pre-Chorus]
I never needed nobody
I hear your train on the tracks
You snuck right in, caught you, caught it [?]
Now I'm falling in love, and it's too late to fall back

[Chorus]
What should I do when you leave me?
What should I do when you're gone?
If you ain't next to me, darlin'
Oh, then I'm nothing but a bag of bones

[Hook]
Ooh-wah, ooh-wah, ooh-wah, ooh, ooh
Ooh-wah, ooh-wah, ooh-wah, ooh, ooh

[Bridge]
Baby, don't you leave me 'cause I can't keep
Hanging onto your shadow
Baby, don't leave me, I'm so blind I can't see
That I'm losing, losing the battle

[Chorus]
What should I do when you leave me?
What should I do when you're gone?
If you ain't next to me, darlin'
Oh, I'm nothing but a—nothing but a bag of bones
What should I do when you leave me?
What should I do when you're gone?
If you ain't next to me, darlin'
Oh, then I'm nothing but a bag of bones

[Hook/Outro]
Ooh-wah, ooh-wah, ooh-wah, ooh, ooh
Ooh-wah, ooh-wah, ooh-wah, ooh, ooh
