Flesh And Bone (Shontelle)

Yeah, listen carefully Listen to these words Baby take a minute let me sit you down Been waiting for the time and the time is now I think you should decide where you wanna be Running in the streets or living here with me Baby take a step back and look around Gonna run yourself like you do the ground You're not invincible and the fact is Nothing's guaranteed but the darn taxes Boy you better listen for you're all alone When the money's spent and all your friends are gone Then you're gonna realize you're only flesh and bone, flesh and bone Then you're gonna realize you're only flesh and bone Hear me now Look into my eyes and tell me what you see Is there any hope that you could ever be More than just a fish in the sea? 'Cause baby after all if you get cut you're gonna bleed Try to understand what I'm telling you This is not a game don't you play the fool I'm begging won't you hear my plea? This is not a theory it's reality Boy you better listen for you're all alone When the money's spent and all your friends are gone Then you're gonna realize you're only flesh and bone, flesh and bone Then you're gonna realize you're only flesh and bone Then you're gonna realize Living in this cold world never easy Life ain't no sweet bread, that's what my momma told me I'm getting wise and now I see what she mean You need to settle down and stop living so extreme I'm your woman and you know I'll always love you I'll never do a single thing to exploit you Life is so precious never take it for granted How can I make you understand this baby? Boy you better listen for you're all alone When the money's spent and all your friends are gone Then you're gonna realize you're only flesh and bone, flesh and bone Then you're gonna realize you're only flesh and bone You're only flesh and bone, flesh and bone, flesh and bone When you're in, when you're out Boy you're gonna learn what it's all about When you're up, when you're down Who be there to lift you off the ground now? When you're high, when you're low One thing in life you're surely gonna know Easy come, easy go In the end you're only flesh and bone Boy, you better listen for you're all alone When the money's spent and all your friends are gone Then you're gonna realize you're only flesh and bone, flesh and bone Then you're gonna realize you're only flesh and bone
