The Bones Of You
by Elbow
(50 plays) | (1 fan)

Frontman Guy Garvey explained to the Manchester Evening News that the character on this track is the same Count Arthur Strong-like person who "Starlings" was about, only a "little bit younger and more metrosexual." He added: "The character is buzzing through St. Ann's Square, phone stuck to his ear, briefcase in hand. He's a young, modern, go-getter and a song comes out of a shop or a café doorway and transports him back five years and 3,000 miles away, and he's in the arms of a woman he lost because of his ambition. It's a recurring theme of the record, balancing what you want with what you need." Garvey concluded that again like "Starlings," this song is once again, autobiographical. He admitted: "It's feelings I was having for somebody. Obviously, I've never been a businessman, but it's about thinking that work and your career is the only thing that's of any importance."
