"Bad Bone" as written by and Glen James/macconiomaire Hansard....
There's a bad bone inside of me
All my troubles started there
And all the cracks are addin' up to be
A little more than you can bare

When I met you, you were bitter still
From a scar you're never gonna show
And I was cursed with a jealousy
That's killed every love I've ever known

And when the anger that you feel
Turns to poison in your soul
And then the scars you only feel
Will start to show

And you were naked on the balcony
And I was waitin' in your bed
You said I pleased you only partially
But I knew my hunger would be fed

And all, all my thoughts of goin' clear
And gettin' out before my time

I died with you upon a vine
I died with you upon a vine
To die with you upon a vine
To die

So if you'll lead the way
If you'll lead the way
Will you lead the way?
Will you lead the way?

There's a bad bone inside of me

    General CommentI love this song. Especially to sing along with. They should get Lisa Hannigan back in (like with Lay Me Down) to record this with Glen. Harmony really compliments it.

    Great lyrics, too. Good insight, Niteflite01.

    "To die with you upon the vine..."

    Just beautiful.

    General CommentA pretty straight forward song about being useless at relationships. It's about being in love with someone but, in a typically Irish way, being hopeless at the whole thing.
