"The Blood" as written by and Glen James Hansard....
When you look and find
You('ve) lost your place
To the girl behind
With the honest face

Ain't that the way..

Your heroes
They pass by on broken feet
With the girls they find
Between the roof and street
On a thin escape

I can't explain where the blood goes
I can't explain cause I don't know
It finds a way

The wise, they talk of honesty
While the boats, they keep pointing
Always set for sea
A fool's escape

There's a note, I found
Reminding me, not to wait
That you'd come and look for me
And not to wait

I can't explain where the love goes
I can't explain cause I don't know
It finds a way

Ohhhh, ooooh, ooooh

    General Commentthis again is another sing-along anthem by the frames, even tho its a quite sad & quiet song. the "ohhhh, ooooh" bit is very high pitched & different to the quietly spoken/softly sung verses. the lyrics are a bit vague, just seems like a typical frames song......"i cant explain where the love goes..cos i dont know" beautiful

    General CommentDon't diss this, but am I the only one reminded of Harry Potter, here?! Seriously. Harry totally lost his role within the trio to Hermione (with the honest face) in the last two books. All his heroes left him. The 'wise' men, that is the people with authority (Dumbledore and Scrimgoeur- however the frick you spell his name), they were all defeated, and made their escape, leaving him to deal with the burden. Then the insignificance of blood purity to him, even though that's what the whole war is about... and don't even get me started on that note!

    Okay, I'm a nerd. But please say so if you happen to agree!
