Verse 1

What's past is past-

But it's made me who I am today.

And I thought you'd understand my destination better

If you learnt more about the journey but

You know what they say?

"Keep your skeletons in your closet."

Chorus

Nobody comes with a clean slate-

Everybody's got skeletons in their closet.

Sorry I was trying to be honest,

Sorry I wanted to get my story off my chest.

I should have waited till the hundredth date

Before I hinted at the skeletons in my closet.

Verse 2

Everybody's got baggage-

I can handle mine alone, I'm doing okay.

It's not like ghosts from my past keep on jumping at me,

They'd have never affected you but

You know what they say?

"Keep your skeletons in your closet."

Chorus

Nobody comes with a clean slate-

Everybody's got skeletons in their closet.

Sorry I was trying to be honest

Sorry I wanted to get my story off my chest.

I should have waited till the hundredth date

Before I hinted at the skeletons in my closet.

Bridge

You know you just can't keep on running away.

She's gonna come home and talk about her day someday.

When you decide to share your life with her, you'd have to go deep.

Just fun and games is a fling, not a long-standing relationship.

Too bad, you never listened to my story,

You didn't realize I just didn't wanna hide

What I've been through, that's all,

I didn't wanna drag you along for the ride.

You would have figured that out if you had decided to stay

But you know what they say?

"Keep your skeletons in your closet."

Chorus

Nobody comes with a clean slate-

Everybody's got skeletons in their closet.

Sorry I was trying to be honest

Sorry I wanted to get my story off my chest.

I should have waited till the hundredth date

Before I hinted at the skeletons in my closet.

"Keep your skeletons in your closet."

Outro

Nobody comes with a clean slate-

Everybody's got skeletons in their closet.

Sorry this relationship was such a waste.

Sorry I wasn't good enough, though I tried by best.

And by the way, karma catches up, so don't trust your fate,

You've got skeletons too, better keep them in your closet.
