Lyrics

SKELETONS
word and music by Michelle Mangione

IF I HAD THE CHOICE
IF I COULD THINK IT OVER
FROM SOME OTHER PLACE
A WORLD WITHOUT DESIGN
THIS IS NOT THE PATH
THAT I WOULD HAVE CHOSEN
REACHING FOR YOUR HAND
AS IF IT WAS A CRIME

ARE YOU AND ME ARE WE ALLOWED TO BE IN LOVE

WE CAN MAKE IT WORK
RAISE OUR BROTHERS’ CHILDREN
WHEN THEY FALL APART
AND CHOOSE TO WALK AWAY
SAFE BEHIND CLOSED DOORS
AND NICE WHITE PICKET FENCES
MAKE BELIEVE IT’S JUST ANOTHER ORDINARY DAY

ARE YOU AND ME ARE WE ALLOWED TO BE IN LOVE

COLD DARK PLACES
WHERE WE USED TO LOCK THEM
THINKING THESE THINGS
LIKE SKELETONS WOULD BE FORGOTTEN

I AM NOT CONFUSED
WICKED, SCARRED OR BROKEN
ALL THESE WORDS THEY USE
TO HIDE A SIMPLE FACT
ONE DAY WE CAN LEARN TO LIVE AND LOVE IN THIS PLACE
WITH OUR HEARTS WIDE OPEN
THERE’S NO REASON ANYONE SHOULD EVER HAVE TO ASK

ARE YOU AND ME ALLOWED TO BE
