“Backbone”

Lindsey Vanlandingham

 

Nothing like a past that won’t stay 6 feet underground

Nothing like a love that won’t stay cold

I buried our love the last time you let me down

And danced on top of all the lies you told 

*

But you keep diggin it up

Comin round here wantin more of my love

Well you’ve had too much and I’ve had enough

I got a new backbone

And the graveyard’s got a new stone

*

Something bout the way that you keep begging 

Reminds me of the way I used to cry

What is it you said, I just need to understand

Well honey I think I have seen the light

*

But you keep digging it up

Comin round here wantin more of my love

Well you’ve had too much and I’ve had enough

I got a new backbone

And the graveyard’s got a new stone
