"Unraveling" as written by and Dave Richard/rose Bassett....
I need an answer
Some way to understand
This feels so convincing
And a little outta hand
So tell me one thing
Who gave you all those scars
That took away your innocence
You push away with everything you are

I can't take this anymore
I'm tired of breaking
I'm tired of breaking

I want the world to see
You sold a broken dream
You were not there for me
I was unraveling
All that we never knew
That could have been me and you
But you took everything
Now we're just here Unraveling

So here we are now
Break what's already broken
I guess I coulda seen this coming
If you'd been around
Lets tear the past wide open

I can't take this anymore
I'm tired of breaking
I'm tired of breaking

I want the world to see
You sold a broken dream
You were not there for me
I was Unraveling
All that we never knew
That could have been me and you
But you took everything
Now we're just here Unraveling

What have we become
The hopeless tonight and I think its over
We hope to find the truth still breathing
Can we survive the low

I want the world to see
You sold a broken dream
You were not there for me
I was unraveling

I want the world to see
You sold a broken dream
You were not there for me
I was unraveling
All that we never knew
That could have been me and you
But you took everything
Now we're just here unraveling

    General CommentLiking the new song! It sounds like a failed relationship to me--he was with someone whose past plagued the new relationship and now things are just unraveling.

    General Commentthis song is about the process of how new things start coming undone. how alot of people dont understand charisma and tanning and laundry. three essentials in not sucking at life. when you get that dance going it dont matter what you do its the smoke the smoke yes the smoke there is no god but god.

    General CommentCORRECT LYRICS:

    I need an answer
    Some way to understand
    You're still so convincing
    And a little out of hand
    So tell me one thing
    Who gave you all those scars?
    And took away your innocence
    You push away with everything you are

    I'm tired of breakin
    I'm tired of breakin

    I want the world to see
    You sold a broken dream
    You were not there for me
    I was unraveling
    All that we never knew
    That coulda been me and you
    But you took everything
    Now we're just here unraveling

    So here we are now
    Break what's already broken
    I guess I could have seen this coming
    If you'd been around
    Let's tear the past wide open
    I can't take this anymore

    I'm tired of breakin
    I'm tired of breakin

    I want the world to see
    You sold a broken dream
    You were not there for me
    I was unraveling
    All that we never knew
    That coulda been me and you
    But you took everything
    Now we're just here unraveling

    What have we become?
    The hopeless dramatic
    Thinking it's over
    We hope to find the truth still breathing
    Can we survive that long?

    I want the world to see
    You sold a broken dream
    You were not there for me
    I was unraveling

    I want the world to see
    You sold a broken dream
    You were not there for me
    I was unraveling
    All that we never knew
    That coulda been me and you
    But you took everything
    Now we're just here unraveling

    General CommentThis song to me is about someone (most likely a girl because you girls are CRAZY! with your feelings) who is so plagued by their past relationship(s) that those insecurities have ruined what could have been the best relationship in your life. How do I know this? Because I just got out of a relationship that was 100% effort on my part and 0% effort on her part. She sold a broken dream, and she was the one who broke the dream. I stood through all of the crap, all of the issues all of the uncertainty only to get cheated on basically. So this song means a lot to me and the lyrics fit like a glove for the situation that happened to me.

    Who gave you all those scars?
    And took away your innocence
    You push away with everything you are

    This is perfect because her past relationship was what ruined our relationship and I want to know who gave her all those scars that took away her innocence. I wanted to change her life for the better but now she pushes away with everything she is
