Whalebones
by Man Man

He felt her curves surrounding his neck
Like a yoke he knows, he'll never forget
The way she cut through his bed
Like a snake would bite through a cave of flesh

But he holds her, though she's broken
He swears he don't care where she's been
He's tired of being human
He wears her close to the bone as though she were his own skin

He shoots from the heart instead of the head
His mouth and his words, they rarely connect
He looks to the past and where his tongue's tread
And he knows he's meant the opposite

But she holds him like an infant
Though it breaks her in half to know he'll wake like a man
Sold on cold indifference
When he reaches for her, she's gone
She slips like the wind through blackened sails, but

Who are we to love at all?
Who are we to love at all?

(Who are we to love at all?)
And I hope you don't mind if I hang all of my hopes
I hang all my hopes on this time
Although I've been warned, I'll probably get burned
I'd rather get burned than to not try

(Who are we to love at all?)
And I hope you don't mind if I hang all of my hopes
I hang all my hopes on this time
'Cause you won't let it go
Let it go
Let it go
Let it go

(Who are we to love at all?)
'Cause you won't let it go
Let it go
Let it go
Let it go

(Who are we to love at all?)
'Cause you won't let it go
Let it go
Let it go
Let it go

'Cause you won't let it go
Who are we to love at all?

LYRICS

He felt her curves surrounding his neck
Like a yoke
He knows
He'll never forget
The way she cut through his bed
Like a snake would bite through a cave of flesh
But he holds her
Though she's broken
He swears he don't care where she's been
He's tired of being human
He wears her close to the bone as though she were his own skin
He shoots from the heart instead of the head
His mouth and his words they rarely connect
He looks to the past and where his tongue's tread
And he knows he meant the opposite
But she holds him
Like an infant
Though it breaks her in half to know he'll wake like a man
Sold on cold indifference
When he reaches for her she's gone
She slips like the wind through blackened sails, but
Who are we to love at all?
Who are we to love at all?
Who are…

One of the most beautiful tracks in the world.

a channel by any other name

Oh Man Man. 5 shows I've been to and you have yet to play any of these slower songs (Gold Teeth, Skin Tension, Poor Jackie). That said, I am "that guy" in the crowd getting too enthusiastic in Ohio between 2004-2007. Absolutely have to see this band live, folks.

Gus Price
