These Bones   Dashboard Confessional



 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,
And they felt those teeth.

Theres a story hidden,
Underneath.
If you dig in deep,
Will you find relief,

For these bones,
Shudder all night long.
The hammer drops.
Another scar,
For these bones,

But I know,
They're only my second home.

No, you won't go down alone.
No, you won't go down alone.
No, you won't go down alone.
No, you won't go down alone.


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,
And they felt those teeth.

There's a story hidden,
Underneath.
If you dig in deep,
Will you find relief?

These bones,
Are like maps and keys,
Where they took their hits,
And they felt those teeth.

Theres a story hidden,
Underneath.
If you dig in deep,
Will you find relief,

       C
For these bones?
'Cause I know,
                        F
