Bones

Music and Lyrics by Rowan Schoales

I broke my tired feet on the frozen field

Scarred my face my tattoos began to peel

I skate in my broken boots on covered leaves

Held my heart in the lion’s teeth

 The branches turn to bones

It’s all I know anymore

I stay inside and think of home

Try to still my cold mind

I play a reel of you in that space

I burn like Christmas lights

When the ice blows in November

And snow dances in December

When my bones start to break in the winter

All I need is my love to mend the splinters

When the moon is new in January

The light dims in February

When my bones have been bent and torn

All I need is my love to keep me warm

A smile and a song to melt the freeze

I heat my tongue with words never said easy

All that gleams in the break before daylight

The bitter taste shatters like ice

When the windows cloud

I still see you through the glass

I seek you out in the crowd

The snow up here is endless

But you melt my heart

You melt the blue off my lips

When the ice blows in November

And snow dances in December

When my bones start to break in the winter

All I need is my love to mend the splinters

When the moon is new in January

The light dims in February

When my bones have been bent and torn

All I need is my love to keep me warm
