"Bad Love" as written by and Eric Patrick/jones Clapton....
Oh what a feeling I get when I'm with you
You take my heart into everything you do
And it makes me sad for the lonely people
I walked that road for so long
Now I know that I'm one of the lucky people
Your love is making me strong

I've had enough bad love
I need something I can be proud of
I've had enough bad love
No more bad love

And now I see that my life has been so blue
With all the heartaches I had till I met you
But I'm glad to say now that's all behind me
With you here by my side
And there's no more memories to remind me
Your love will keep me alive

[Chorus: x3]

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite Clapton songs. He's talking/singing to a woman he's been in a relationship with. He truly loves this woman, and knows that she loves him, too. He's had "bad love" in the past (bad relationships) and he doesn't want to suffer anymore.

    He also acknowledges he's a lucky man, as there are some men on this earth who will never have a woman like his. He knows how that feels, because he used to be one of those people.

    Of course, the Crybaby Wah pedal is an Eric Clapton staple in this song that makes it even more enjoyable to listen to. Way to go, "Slowhand"!
