Into The Bone

by Stephen Simmons




I watch young lovers as they stroll through the park
Reminded of chances I once took with my heart long ago
Oh the few true love’s I’ve known
I sit on my perch and hurl these judgements down
Hide behind these walls so tall and strong on the edge of town
Made of hardened stone

And it’s working it’s way / Deeper than I’ve ever known
And it’s working it’s way / Into the bone

She wears her dresses like a lady should
Yet wastes soft kisses on a man that don’t know bad from good
Oh but one day she’ll know
Thorn cuts your thumb and it breaks your skin
C’mon now baby let it work now deeper in
It’s only flesh, it’s not like it’s solid bone


Go easy on this soul I once prayed
But with these new callouses on my heart now I’m ready to play
Stitch me up and let’s go
