Oh go, far from this small-town bar we know
And go, frolic in the lights that brought you here
So very long
And hold, hold your lips so tightly at the shadows, we go
'Cause I know, I know, I know, I know
You can never be alone
'Cause it's just the bones you're made of

And you laugh like you've never been lonely
That's alright, honey
That's alright with me
Oh, you laugh like there's hope in the story
That's alright, honey
That's alright with me
Oh, you laugh like I'll be there to hold you always
Always here
I'm always, honey, always here

And go, silent as death on the first day of the snow
Oh go, leave these fires burning
A house of embers and coal
And cover, covered all those boys that search for love
In your room
'Cause lust is just a child's game and you
Oh, you were always late to bloom

And you laugh like you've never been lonely
That's alright, honey
That's alright with me
Oh, you laugh like there's hope in the story
That's alright, honey
That's alright with me
Oh, you laugh like I'll be there to hold you always
Always here
I'm always, honey, always here

And you love like you've always been lonely
That's alright honey
That's alright with me
Oh, you love him with all of your body
That's alright honey
That's alright with me
Oh, you love him like you'll be there for always
Always, honey, yeah, always near

Always, honey, yeah, always near
Always, honey, yeah, always near

Oh, far from this small-town bar we know
Oh, go, leave me with this bird and his song
Out here in the cold

'Cause it's just the bones you're made of
