Liner Notes: 

I found a partial song from 10 years ago. I hated much of it, but liked the idea, so I rewrote it.


Bones in the Closet
© 2020 Cindy Prince

I don’t wanna be redundant
Don’t want to be too cliche
So I’ll refer to them as bones
Skeletons just get in the way

Not sure if you got them
But baby I got me some bones
They’re hidden away in a closet
Where they'll stay unknowns

Yeah, I got bones in my closet
They’re hanging on tight to that bar
I don’t want them out in the open
Cause some of them are real bizarre
Maybe you have some in hiding
Most of us are concealing a few
Many of us have a couple femurs
We’d just as soon hide from view

“Dem Bones, Dem Bones, Dem Dry Bones…”

Maybe there’s a family secret
That is darker than you can reveal
Maybe what you’ve done in the past
Is far from society’s ideal

Maybe these bones they go haunting
Shaking you down to your frame
But by facing the past and its demons
You may find there’s no one to blame

Repeat chorus

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

I remember doing a different variant of Bones with you a few years ago. I do think this is a little stronger lyric Smile
