Old Bones

lyrics

Oh, these old bones give way
To the silent seas they go
Line the hulls of silver boats and
Gilmer past the rocky shore
To a place where they can tap the edges
Crack the panes of old glass
Reassemble themselves
And stay that way forever

Oh, she licked the ancient valleys
Raked her fingers through the beaches
Let her hair flow through the mountains
Curled her toes on the ocean floor
Though sheʼd left her earthly body
Its decay was no great matter
For her old bones were no longer
Who she was before

Oh, these old bones give way
To the silent seas they go
Line the hulls of silver boats
Way down past the rocky shore
To a place where they can tap the edges
Crack the panes of old glass
Reassemble themselves in whole again
And stay that way forever
