206 Bones (live acoustic)

by Vanessa Peters

fan club exclusive


This was from the Concert Window online show we did on 8/16.
We recorded the show live straight on into the board.


Pockets full of spare keys
to houses I don't live in anymore
They weigh me down completely
but I cannot seem to let them take their leave of me

After so long of carrying sharp words on my tongue
I've earned the right to be earnest
When you pare it down to the last few things
well the last few things to get done are always the hardest

Two hundred and six bones
But only one heart

When the wood house it burns down
All that's left are bolts hinges nails and screws
We couldn't hold it all together
When the flame lit the fuse

Two hundred and six bones
But only one heart

(.... the lyrics to the bridge have since changed, so I did not include them here)...
