"Flaws" as written by and Jack Steadman....
Taking the second plan,
Begging to understand,
Life of a selfless man.

'Cos out of all the flaws I've stumbled on,
It's the hardest one to focus on.
It's the hardest one to focus on.

Why're you calling on?
Isn't one enough?
Giving up all she's got.

'Cos out of all the flaws I've stumbled on,
It's the hardest one to focus on.
It's the hardest one to focus on.

    Song MeaningI personally believe this is a song about a man realizing what he has done to a woman, and trying to correct himself. He is taking the second plan, going a different route. Life of a selfless man, selfless as in not leading her on or realizing he cannot keep trailing her on. It is hard for him because he knows it is one of his own flaws, but its the hardest one to change. He may love this woman, but not the love she needs. He has done it more than once, "isn't one enough", and she has offered herself emotionally (or physically), "giving up all she's got".
    This is a truly beautiful song, and Lucy Rose backs Jack for a flawless song. One of my favorites.

    My InterpretationI personally see it as a song about infidelity. The speaker cannot be selfless, as they are selfish. This translates to acting on impulse only for your own gain. As his girlfriend gives it his all, he still wants more aside from her. More lovers. He can't stay faithful.

    My InterpretationI see it as the man looking back on all the things that he's done and looking at himself and realising that what he did to the girl is hard or impossible to fix. He's sees that she gave up everything but he still wanted more.

    I really love this song whatever the meaning.
