Bones Tempt a Lady

Bones tempt a Lady in the old moonlight


I am so cold lady


lay with me a while.


Let me feel where your flesh lives.


sing me stories of hearts and lungs.


Pretty lady, sweet lady,


covered-in-skin lady


dirt to my casket.


My grave is wide my heart was deep


you will fit so well inside.


 


Lady says to Bones in the cold morning gray.


Old bones, cold bones,


I’ll lay with you a while.


Feel my heartbeat, feel my breath


you will never leave me, not even for death.


Pale bones, lonely bones


keep other men away,


no one wants a lady who smells like a grave.
