"Unwrite That Song" as written by Tony Carl Mullins, Rick Medlock, Gary Robert Rossington, Jeffrey Steele and Johnny Roy Van Zant....
Well I heard it on the late night radio
For the umpteenth time headin' from LA to the Florida coast
I was between black coffee and shifting gears
When the second verse took a turn and brought me to tears
They were talkin' about love, I do and forever
And how two people ought to stay together
Well the music hit me but the singer's got it all wrong

Unwrite that song
Unwrite that song
'Cause what he's saying to me don't go with that melody
Unsing them lines about those happy times
Don't they know she's gone
Unwrite that song

Well it was 3 AM and she was cryin' and her eyes were all red
When that music video came on and she sat up in her bed
She grabbed that whiskey bottle
Poured one last shot
And threw that empty glass at the TV and screamed

Unwrite that song
Unwrite that song
'Cause what he's saying to me don't go with that melody
Unsing them lines about those happy times
Don't they know he's gone
Unwrite that song

Well there was a time that I believed
All those words were true
And if I had a pen and paper right now
I know what I'd do

Unwrite that song
Unwrite that song
'Cause what he's saying to me don't go with that melody
Unsing them lines about those happy times
Don't they know he's gone
Unwrite that song
Lord I know she's gone
Unwrite that song
Unwrite our song

    this song is AMAZING.
    in my opinion, it's about a couple and the guy wrote a song for her and when they were together, it was sweet and romantic and cute.
    but now that they're not together anymore, she's like 'can you unwrite that? cause it's a pack of lies'
    it's a sad song ):
    but i love it regardless![:

    General Commentactually, i take that back.
    i think it's more about hearing a song about live and disagreeing with it because you've been hurt and you're heartbroken.
    that makes more sense XD

    General CommentIt seems simple enough to me. A guy with a broken heart hears a song on the radio about true love enduring but his own experiences with love make it impossible for him to relate to it.
