“The Bones” by Maren Morris & Hozier
“The Bones” highlights two lovers, who are portrayed by Maren Morris and Hozier, that are extremely dedicated to their romantic relationship. In fact “the bones” is actually a metaphor for the emotional foundation of their relationship. And what they are saying is that no matter what obstacles may come to test their union, “the bones” will remain intact. That is a powerful way of proclaiming that their love is indissoluble.
So they are very much aware that “hard times” can and indeed have already materialized. As a matter of fact at times they even “mess it up”, as in do things which are detrimental to their relationship, themselves. And these instances logically wear down on their union. But throughout it all they can rejoice and take comfort in that fact that “the bones”, i.e. core of their romance, cannot be broken.
