      About "Pirate Bones"

      Lyrics for Natasha Bedingfield - "Pirate Bones"

      What if I squeeze myself into any shape
      And I still don't fit?
      What if I bend myself so much that I break
      And I can't mend it?
      What if I burn so bright that the fire goes out
      And I can't stay lit?
      What's the point in it?
      I could get good at crying crocodile tears
      Just to get along
      I could carry on telling you wanna hear
      'Till my voice is gone
      But if I finally get to the place that I think is home
      And I don't belong
      What's the point in it?
      Where's the benefit?
      When I'm gaining all but I'm losing it

      It's not worth having
      If it's too much to hold
      You can dig so deep
      That you're left with a hole
      Thirsty in a desert with a bag full of gold
      Don't wanna end up like pirate bones
      What I thought was precious was just a pile o' stones
      I might have the treasure but I'd be lying alone
      Just a pile of pirate bones
      If I forfeit my soul it ain't worth having
      If it's something I stole it ain't worth having

      What if I stake everything I am on a dream
      And it's counterfeit?
      If I reach the end that justifies the means
      Could I live with it?
      And if it's true that having too much of any good thing
      Can only make me sick
      What's the point in it
      Where's the benefit
      When I'm gaining all but I'm losing it
      Oh, oh

      It's not worth having
      If it's too much to hold
      You can dig so deep
      That you're left with a hole
      Thirsty in a desert with a bag full of gold
      Don't wanna end up like pirate bones
      What I thought was precious was just a pile o' stones
      I might have the treasure but I'd be lying alone
      Pile of bones
      If I forfeit my soul it ain't worth having
      If it's something I stole it ain't worth having

      It's not worth that much to me
      If losing out is what it means
      To swim in shallow victory
      Is empty, empty
      It's just not worth the price
      It's only a fools paradise
      If it's draining every drop of life 'till I'm dry like pirate bones

      It's not worth having
      If it's too much to hold
      You can dig so deep
      That you're left with a hole
      Thirsty in a desert with a bag full of gold
      Don't wanna end up like pirate bones
      What I thought was precious was just a pile o' stones
      I might have the treasure but I'd be lying alone
      Just a pile of pirate bones
      If I forfeit my soul it ain't worth having
      No,
      Pirate bones
      Pirate bones
      Pirate bones
      If I forfeit my soul it ain't worth having
      If it's something I stole it ain't worth having
