Bulletproof by La Roux the song is about someone leaving her and shes hurt but then shes like never again, this time I'll be bulletproof. Thats more of the season one Brennen.

Breakable- Ingrid Michaelson

"Have you ever thought about what protects our hearts?
Just a cage of rib bones and other various parts.

We are so fragile and our cracking bones make noise

And we are just breakable breakable breakable girls and boys....

Help Me Fall by Mark Wills because she has tried hard to not love too many people. She has tried not to love Booth but she just can't let go.

For those of you who don't listen to country, Help Me Fall by Mark Wills begins like this:
I've been trying not to love you
I've been putting up a fight
I've been barely hanging on
Letting go with all my might

Damaged by Plumb it really reminds me of Brennan

Dreaming comes so easily
'Cause it's all that I've ever know
True love is a fairy tale
I'm damaged, so how would I know

I'm scared and I'm alone
I'm ashamed
And I need for you to know

I didn't say all the things that I wanted to say
And you can't take back what you've
taken away
'Cause I feel you, I feel you near me

I didn't say all the things that I wanted to say
And you can't take back what you've
taken away
'Cause I feel you, I feel you near me

Healing comes so painfully
And it chills to the bone
Will anyone get close to me?
I'm damaged, as I'm sure you know

There's mending for my soul
An ending to this fear
Forgiveness for a man who was stronger
I was just a little girl, but I can't go back

"Reasons Why" by Nickel Creek

Perfectly fits with Brennan's issues with intimacy and fear of love....esp. relevant post-100th episode!

"Where am I today, I wish that I knew
'Cause looking around there's no sign of you
I don't remember one jump or one leap
Just quiet steps away from your lead

I'm holding my heart out but clutching it too
Feeling this sort of a love that we once knew
I'm calling this home when it's not even close
Playing the role with nerves left exposed

Standing on a darkened stage
Stumbling through the lines
Others have excuses
But I have my reasons why

We get distracted by the dreams of our own
But nobody's happy while feeling alone
And knowing how hard it hurts when we fall
We lean another ladder against the wrong wall

And climb high to the highest rung
To shake fists at the sky
While others have excuses
I have my reasons why

With so much deception
It's hard not to wander away
It's hard not to wander away
It's hard not to wander away"

If I'm Not In Love - Faith Hill

If I'm not in love with you
What is this I'm going through tonight
And if my heart is lying then
What should I believe in
Why do I go crazy
Everytime I think about you baby
Why else do I want you like I do?
If I'm not in love with you

And if I don't need your touch
Why do I miss you so much tonight
If it's just infatuation then
Why is my heart aching
To hold you forever
Give a part of me I thought I'd never
Give again to someone I could lose
If I'm not in love with you

Oh why in every fantasy
Do I feel your arms embracing me
Like lovers lost in sweet desire
Oh why in dreams do I surrender
Like a little baby
Someone help explain this feeling
Someone tell me

If I'm not in love with you
What is this I'm going through, tonight
And if my heart is lying then
What should I believe in
Why do I go crazy
Every time I think about you baby
Why else do I want you like I do
If I'm not in love with you.

"Absence of Fear" by Jewel

Inside my skin there is this space
It twists and turns,
It bleeds and aches.
Inside my heart there's an empty room
It's waiting for lightning,
It's waiting for you.

And I am wanting
And I am needing you here
Inside the absence of fear.

Muscle and sinew
Velvet and stone
This vessel is haunted
It creaks and moans
My bones call to you in their separate skin
Make myself translucent to let you in

For I am wanting
And I am needing you here
Inside the absence of fear

There is this hunger,
this restlessness inside of me
And it knows that you're no stranger,
you're my gravity
My hands will adore you through all darkness aim
They will lay you out in the moonlight
and reinvent your name.

For I am wanting
And I am needing you here
I need you near
Inside the absence of fear

-BonesDetroitFan

I really like "Die Alone" by Ingrid Michaelson for Brennan because not only does it talk about loving someone, but it also touches on the feelings of being alone.


"I never thought I could love anyone but myself.
Now I know I can't love anyone but you.
You make me think that maybe I won't die alone.
Maybe I won't die alone."
