Lyrics

Warm My Bones
We used to light it up
We used to burn it down
we used to drink and laugh and dance
round the flames of those burning towns
And in the hazy light of the morning sun
We had pride in still being alive
Not so much in the things we done
Memories piled on memories
until they are thousands
of feet underground
that’s how a diamond gets made
somedays a diamond gets found
I will warm my bones by the glowing coals
of these memories that I hold so dear
when I’m old and cold my furnace broke
so hard to keep warm
I will warm my bones by the glowing coals
Bank those coals in the ashes
of this life you made
so many flames and old songs
all up the chimney and gone
Bank those coals, bank them my brothers
one day they might be uncovered
your rheumy eyes staring into the embers
make a blanket out of the things
you remember and wear it home
I will warm my bones by the glowing coals
of these memories that I hold so dear
when I’m old and cold my furnace broke
so hard to keep warm
I will warm my bones by the glowing coals
