These Bones - Dashboard Confessional
Intro- B5 C5 2x C5 D5 or F
Verse- C Am G#5 G F Lay my bones, At the feet of the ministry. I need the guilt and the company. I need the chance to be judged, And then long forgotten.
Verse- C Am G#5 G F Lately I just cant shake it. I count the days in seconds and minutes. Hours and hours and subtle as shards of glass, In the skin.
Refrain Am So lay with me. F I could use the company. You could help me ease,
Chorus-C Dm Am F These bones, Are like maps and keys, Where they took their hits, And they felt those teeth. There's a story hidden, Underneath. If you dig in deep, Will you find relief,
Chorus-C Dm Am F For these bones, Shudder all night long. The hammer drops. Another scar, For these bones, But I know, They're only my second home.
Do verse- Naked and under the cover of night. It's just a matter of time 'til I'm, Counted and measured and filed, And then long forgotten. Forgive my manner of speaking. I know it's quick, but the clock is still ticking, And I've got a few words left burning holes on my tongue. I've been saving them.
Do refrain So lay with me. I could use the company. You could help me ease,
Do chorus These bones, Are like maps and keys, Where they took their hits,
