After releasing the album “Lady sings the blues”, an interpretation of songs performed by American jazz singer Billie Holiday, Rebecca Ferguson returns with a new track.
It’s called “Bones” and it’s the lead single from the British singer’s fourth studio album “Superwoman”.
The midtempo soul pop song, written by William Foster, Danny Goffey, Pearl Lowe and Neil Carlill with a production by Troy Miller, is a cover of Ginny Blackmore’s number 1 single with the same name released in 2013.
Lyrically “Bones” deals with a past lover who was never really there for Rebecca. “It’s tough being a woman in love with an unkind man”, she explains her situation in the first verse.
The album “Superwoman” will be released on the 14th of October and first single “Bones” is out now!

Lyrics:

I wish that you could see who I really am
It’s tough being a woman in love with an unkind man
‘Cause baby I’d give you the world, in fact, I already do
And how do you repay that?
Talk to me like I’m just a regular tramp tryna took you over
Have you even have a clue, what I gave up just to be here?
Serve you with your steak and beer?

Baby that’s for love (baby that’s for love)
Baby that’s for real (baby that’s for real)
And all I’ve ever wanted was for your loving arms
To wrap themselves around me and say

Hey girl, you’re the prettiest thing my eyes have ever seen
Come and lay your bones down with me
Come and lay your bones down with me
Hey girl, you’re the prettiest thing my heart has ever known
Come and lay your bones down with me
Come and lay your bones down

I’m not tryna play the victim, don’t wanna go head to head
But boy I shouldn’t have to stand in the mirror convincing myself I’m fair
Maybe that’s your job to do
And maybe you should say I’m beautiful
Why do you wanna watch the set when I’m layin’ right next to you in my own room?
I feel like you don’t even know I’m there
But I put a brush through my hair for you
Run my fingertips over your back real smooth

Boy I need love (boy I need love)
I don’t get enough (I don’t get enough)
And all I’ve ever wanted was for your loving arms
To wrap themselves around me and say

Hey girl, you’re the prettiest thing my eyes have ever seen
Come and lay your bones down with me
Come and lay your bones down with me
Hey girl, you’re the prettiest thing my heart has ever known
Come and lay your bones down with me
Come and lay your bones down

I look you dead in the eyes and say I love you
In the eyes and say I want you
In the eyes and say this is what I’m asking for
How can you sit and stare at the wall?
Do you even like me at all?
Start talking ’bout making it better, it ain’t that complicated
I just wanna see your arms around me, baby
Come and lay your bones down
Come and lay your bones down

Hey girl, you’re the prettiest thing my eyes have ever seen
Come and lay your bones down with me
Come and lay your bones down with me (bones down)
Hey girl, you’re the prettiest thing my heart has ever known
Come and lay your bones down with me
Come and lay your bones down
Oh, I look you dead in the eyes and say I love you
In the eyes and say I want you
In the eyes and say this is what I’m asking for
Ooh, come and lay your bones down
Let me lay my bones down with you
