"unrequited love" as written by Christopher Rutledge Cargile, Adam Cory Harrell, Michael Christian Lamb and Jason Daniel Lowery....
So write it down in lover's blood
There's gotta be a better way to break this spell
Send out a search party
Have you forgot how to love or how to die
I see the crosses behind your eyes
When will the fire burn out
Is it after we've covered our tracks
I'm not going to stay to find out
He never asked for much
If the fire burns out will it ever light up again
It's been so long since I've seen your eyes this cold
When did you let them step in
When did you let them take control
So sound the alarm
There's gotta be a better way to break this spell
Tell the whole world that I left without his love
At the chiming of the bells
I've been dreaming of elaborate schemes
Thought the love was good for a while
It's been much easier to leave
I've got a new life now
This couldn't have come at a worse time
I guess you had to find out about this
Unrequited love that I deny
You say you fell out of love
Well I call this abandonment

    General Commentthis sounds a lot like underoath
    not saying its a ripoff
    well the firts part of the song i cant understand much but i feel that its about falling out of love
    and in the end it clearly says:

    Well I call this abandonment

    Easy to figure what this part of the song is about

    General CommentI can understand how you can think it sounds like underoath....it kinda has that "its dangerous buisness" intro and feel through out the song. then the slow melodic part reminds me of "drowning in your sleep"....then when "Glass Shatters And Comes To A Halt" reminds me of " I CALL THIS ABANDONMENT"

    As for the meaning of the song, i dont really know. It could be about a couples break up. it could be about someone leaving their faith. it could be both. Does anyone else know?

    General CommentI went through this stage with my boyfriend and i felt like God put this song in my life. My boyfriend broke up with me and i was depressed for the longest time, it happend before but he would always come back i thought this was the end.

    When he says "If the fire burns out will it ever light up again" to me that means if u leave will u ever come back.
    "I'm not going to stay to find out" im not gonna wait anymore
    "I've got a new life now" i moved on
    "This couldn't have come at a worse time" you waited too long

    this is just my interpretation, what it means to me

    in case u were wondering me n my boyfriend are back together and we dont fight anymore because i finally put all my trust in God.

    General CommentThis song is intense. To me this song has been a huge accountability to me in my personal relationship with my Lord and Savior. I'm not sure if that was the original intention. Anything you were thinking before it starts playing is immediately destroyed... it hits on so many levels. All I can say is thank you CV.

    General Commentchasing victory has the perfect mix of lyrical talent, and music talent. ..and i dont think they sound like underoath at all.
    but that is just me. and this song is definitely about a questionable break up " if the fire burns out will it ever light up again?" that "couldnt have come at a worse time"...unrequited means " not returned" so maybe there were still feelings on one half of it but it never worked out so they got tired of waiting " i'm not going to stay to find out" and so moved on and " got a new life now " . . . . i dunno, that is what it said to me.

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who has falle naways from God.. their eyes have turned cold... God has soo much love for us that we could never even began to love him that much in return.. That is what "unrequited" means. Well this person abandoned Gods love when he,"let them step in" So, "sound the alarm" because this song is beautiful...and it's raw rock kills...

    "if the fire burns out will it ever light up again?"
