"Loose Threads" as written by Jonathan Alexander Letcher Albright, Michael Craig Deming, Ryan Ackerman Downing, Jonathan David Owens, John Wesley Chester and Meagan Beth Plummer....
If you can't take the weather
You can take my sweater
With the loose threads.
I know that I'm in danger
Of unravelling,
But believe me,
I'm fine with it
Because I'd rather fall apart
Than hold it all together.
So I'm ready now
To let go.

Broken words
Come from healing hearts.
Stitch me up,
I'm ready to talk.
You'd better hit the deck.
I'm ready to talk.

So leave the old sayings to the old folks
With both feet planted in the past.
Roots run deep and
Broken words come from healing jaws.
We'll keep reaching until the last leaf falls.
I'm ready now
To move on.

Broken words
Come from healing hearts.
Stitch me up,
I'm ready to talk.
You'd better hit the deck.
I'm ready to talk.

If you can't take the weather
You can take my sweater
With the loose threads.

Broken words
Come from healing hearts.
Stitch me up,
I'm ready to talk.
You'd better hit the deck.
I'm ready to talk.

If you can't take it, then
I will do my best to make it better.
Broken words
Come from healing hearts.

If you can't take the weather
You can take my sweater
With the loose threads.
I know that I'm in danger
Of unravelling,
Believe me,
I'm fine

    General CommentIn short, I think the singer is ready to move on from a hurtful relationship.

    "I know that I'm in danger of unravelling. But believe me, I'm fine with it because I'd rather fall apart than hold it all together.":
    He knows that he's in danger of falling apart after the break up, but that would be better than trying to make it work.

    "Broken words come from healing hearts":
    He's finally feeling better, and is ready to break up with the girl.

    "You better hit the deck, I'm ready to talk":
    Watch out, because I'm about to let you have it.
