"Before We Come Undone" as written by Gregory Allen Kurstin, Kris Allen and Lindy Robbins....
You could break this silence with
Words we wish we'd never said,
But I can hear it like a scream.
What's become of you and me?
Are we still inside this night,
Or am I going crazy?

I'm just trying to understand
Who I was and who I am,
But you are changing just the same.
So can you tell me who's to blame?
Could we put our weapons down,
Just to figure this out now?!

Pride is out the door
'Cause I know we can make it before
Make it before
The sun breaks another day.
I wait 'til you say I'm the only one
Before we come
Before we come undone.

If you say that it's too late,
Those are words my heart can't take.
And this night is out to kill,
And if we let it, it will.
Could be both forgive somehow?
'Cause I'm not letting you down now!

Pride is out the door
'Cause I know we can make it before
Make it before
The sun breaks another day.
I wait 'til you say I'm the only one
Before we come
Before we come undone.

Watch out here we go
There's no turning back, you know.
We can keep going 'round and 'round and 'round and 'round, so now

Pride is out the door
'Cause I know we can make it before
Make it before
The sun breaks another day.
I wait 'til you say I'm the only one
Before we come
Before we come undone.

Pride is out the door
'Cause I know we can make it before
Make it before
The sun breaks another day.
I wait 'til you say I'm the only one
Before we come
Before we come undone.

Before we come undone
Before we come undone

    General CommentI really like this song. It's catchy, and I'm thinking that its about a guy who can sense that he's about to lose his love, but he is trying to figure out how to convince her of their love.

    General CommentThis is probably my favorite on the album (for now, that always changes).

    It sounds like there's been some sort of an argument, and although both people have probably messed up in the relationship, he's willing to give it up and surrender in order to save it. I think they've both been really stubborn about it and he finally just gives in for the greater good.

    My OpinionI really love this song. The lyrics are so tragic and meaningful.

    I think the song is about a relationship that is very strained between 2 people and not necessarily romantic. It can be any type of connection between 2 people.

    It's about dropping the pretenses and pride and cutting through all the bullshit, It's about meeting each other halfway and forgetting about who's right or wrong. Sometimes you just need to start again but pride gets in the way xxxxx
