"Bad Habit" as written by and Meredith Marie Godreau....
I think my bones are breaking,
Under black eyes, and bookcases up to the sky.
The promises I made myself
I wouldn't land it, cause it's a bad habit,
They don't help.

The nights are crazy,
But when I try to sleep,
All I see is grinding teeth and soft skin,
You're biting into my mess
And I bask in the pain that comes to pass

The heart wants us to fall in love.
Everyone I know wants to fall in love
Love once got me in the gut,
There was no real fight, it tore me up.

And the heart once says
To fall in love, to fall in love...

    General Commenti freaking love this song so much. her voice and the melody and ah everything! i don't know what it's about, seems to be just a break up and how everyone wants to be in love but they don't know the pain of breaking up with someone you're in love with. yah idk.

    General Commenti could be wrong, but i hear the first line as
    " think i'm bound to break it " as in, break the Bad Habit? it's hard to say though, they both fit.
    also " and the heart WANTS us to fall in love" not "once says"
    anyway, love this song. meredith owns.

    General Commentreal lyrics: (Taken from GATH's site)

    think my bones are breaking
    under black eyes and bookcases up to the sky
    the promises i made myself -
    that i wouldn't land it cause it's a bad habit -
    they don't help

    the nights are crazy
    and when i try to sleep
    all i see is grinding teeth and soft skin
    you're biting into my mess
    and i bask in the pain that comes to pass

    the heart wants us to fall in love
    everyone i know wants to fall in love
    but love once got me in the gut
    there was no real fight, it tore me up

    General Commentwell the meaning i have for this song is due to my experience with love

    but i think its about being with someone and your heart really loves but because of "bad habits" it makes it harder to stay together even if love is there.

    General CommentI think this is kinda her warning about love. Everyone says they want to be in love and you can't stop the heart from loving someone. But she's saying it's a bad habbit it tears you up. Even tho it's a bad habbit, it's a habbit she can't break.
