I wish that you could see,
who I really am.
It sucks being a woman,
in love with and unkind man.
'Cause baby, I would give you the world.
In fact, I already do.
And how do you repay that?
Talk to me like I'm just a regular tramp tryna screw you over.
Do you even have a clue,
what I gave up just to be here?
To serve your ass with steak and beer?

Baby, that's love.
Baby, that's real.
And all I ever wanted was for your damn arms
to wrap themselves around me and say..

Hey girl, you're the prettiest thing my eyes have ever seen.
Come and lay your bones down with me.
Come and lay your bones down with me.
Hey girl, you're the prettiest thing my heart has ever known.
Come and lay your bones down with me.
Come and lay your bones down with me.

I'm not tryna play the victim.
Don't wanna go head to head.
But boy, i shouldn't have to stand in the mirror,
convincing myself I'm fair.
Baby, that's your job to do.
Baby, you should think I'm beautiful.
Why you wanna watch the set,
when I'm layin' right next to you in our own room.
I feel like you don't even know I'm here.
But I put a brush through my hair for you.
Run my fingertips over your back real smooth.

'Cause boy I need love.
I don't get enough.
And all I ever wanted was for your damn arms
to put themselves around me and say

Hey girl, you're the prettiest thing my eyes have ever seen.
Come and lay your bones down with me.
Come and lay your bones down with me.
Hey girl, you're the prettiest thing my heart has ever known.
Come and lay your bones down with me.
Come and lay your bones down with me.

I look you dead in the eye and say I love you.
In the eye and say I want you.
In the eye and say this is what I'm asking for.
How can you sit and stare at the wall?
Do you even like me at all?
Start talking 'bout making it better.
It ain't that complicated,
I just want to feel your arms around me, babe.
Please say...

Girl, you're the prettiest thing my eyes have ever seen.
Come and lay your bones down with me.
Come and lay your bones down with me.
Hey girl, you're the prettiest thing my heart has ever known.
Come and lay your bones down with me.
Come and lay your bones down with me.

Please, please, baby.
It's a woman's dream..
