Rust and Bone

This song is by Family and Friends and appears on the EP Love You Mean It (2014).

Leave me where you found me
With the arms of the darkness surrounding, around me
Throw dirt in my eyes and try convincing me
My love is blind

I lost you in the rubble like a diamond to the rough
Or a face beneath the stubble when the times are tending tough
I'm giving up, on giving up

Here we lay to rest a younger man than the one I now am
I now am half the one he was when I smothered him beneath my skin

Curse my fickle heart, my stubborn ways, my foolish pride
Wondering if ever there a better way to live
Or least some better way to die
Today is the first day of the rest of my life
Today is the first day of the rest of my life
I'm learning how to die

I set my sails for safer waters
I left my love for higher ground, don't look down
I am watching from above, you sinking like a stone
I let you drown, I let you drown

Down on luck like a sinner feeling sorry for myself
Preacher man says if I'll be damned you're going straight to hell
Your god don't love you anymore
My god, don't you love me anymore

I am feeling I'm not where I am going
I am feeling I'm not where I am going
I am feeling I'm not where I am going
Or what I am going to become

The air is static in the attic where the ghosts of our past live
They are rust and bone (rust and bone!)
I still think of you out of habit like some kind of madness
But I am letting go, (I'm letting go!)
Of all my reasons for fear of failure, my demons beneath me Screaming let me out (let me out!)
But I'm buried beneath the covers with the ghosts of my lovers Thinking never or now, never or now

I'm losing sleep, I lost you once, I won't lose you now again
I'll scream and shout till my lungs give out
Till the blood runs cold beneath the skin

Forever my love
Forever my love
Forever my love
Forever my friend
