"Unconditional" as written by Deanna Bryant, Liz Hengber and Rivers Rutherford....
I've spent my whole life surrounded
and I've spent my whole life alone
I wonder why I never wonder why
The easiest things are so hard
I just want, I just want love
I just want, I just want love
I just want, I just want love
I just want something
Something for nothing
Something, something for nothing

I'm a beggar and I'm a chooser
I'm accused, I'm an accuser
But nothing's unconditional

I hold the whole world accused
I've only got myself to blame
I wonder why, I never wonder why
The easiest things are so hard

I just want, I just want love
I just want, I just want love
I just want, I just want love
I just want something
Something for nothing
Something, something for nothing

I just want, I just want love
I just want, I just want love
I just want, I just want love
I just want something
Something for nothing
Something, something for nothing

I'm a beggar and I'm a chooser
I'm accused, I'm an accuser
But nothing's unconditional

    General CommentI think this song is about wanting love, but wanting it for free. You don't want to have to work for it. Hence the title "Unconditional" But I don't see it as selfish in anyway. This is just a lonely person who wants to be loved. I can't help but love this song. I mean, who does't want love?

    General CommentYeah, their lyrics are pretty straight-forward. I think he just wants to be in love, but is a bit cynical about it due to past relationships that didn't work out.

    General Commentoh and that ekizzle kid is dumb. He says they have no talent, then goes on to say he doesn't either. Am I wrong to think that someone with no talent should not be judging people who do?

    General CommentI JUST WANT
    I JUST WANT LOVE

    wow this song hits deep. i think the song means the person thinks that wanting an unconditional love as a selfish yearning.

    General CommentYeah, very talented band, it sucks that they get so much shit from critics (comparing them to the Strokes, the Killers, etc.) which are also awesome bands. A very well written song.

    General CommentAt first the lyrics make Endicott sound pretty needy …I just want I just want love…
    But then you see him in the video and you think, Oh he is so cute…he is being vulnerable. Amazing what a pretty face can do to change the meanings of things.
    And I agree - this song really rocks.
