"Flawless" as written by Emile Haynie, Zachary Abels, Jeremy Nikolas Freedman, Michael Blake Margott, Jesse J. Rutherford and Bryan James Sammis....
She planned ahead for a year, he said let's play it by ear
She didn't want him to run, he didn't want her to fear
Nobody said it'd be easy, they knew it was rough
But, tough luck

I fell in love today, there aren't many words you can say
That could ever get my mind to change
She's enough for me, she's in love with me

You're a doll, you are flawless
But I just can't wait for love to destroy us
I just can't wait for love
You're only flaw, you are flawless
But I just can't wait for love to destroy us
I just can't wait for love

So, she put his heart in a bag, he wouldn't ask for it back
He didn't want her to cry, she didn't want to be sad
She said, you better not leave me
This shit'll be fucked for days and weeks and months, but

I fell in love today, there aren't any words that you can say
That could ever get my mind to change
She's enough for me, she's in love with me

You're a doll, you are flawless
But I just can't wait for love to destroy us
I just can't wait for love
You're only flaw, you are flawless
But I just can't wait for love to destroy us
I just can't wait for love

Add it all up, I can find it
The problem with love is I'm blinded by
It rattles my lungs, but my mind is
Tangled between your little flaws
Your flaws, your flaws, your flaws

You're a doll, you are flawless
But I just can't wait for love to destroy us
I just can't wait for love
You're only flaw, you are flawless
But I just can't wait for love to destroy us
I just can't wait for love

Wait for love, I won't wait for love
Wait for love, I won't wait for love
Wait for love

    Song MeaningShe planned ahead for a year, he said "Let's play it by ear":He played it cool, just let the things work themselves out. The girl was probably the possessive type, she made plans that stretched to the far future, not knowing this would make her suffer more when they broke up.

    She didn't want him to run, he didn't want her to fear: She didn’t want to scare him off, covering all her little flaws, He didn’t want her to be scared about the future or worry about it too much

    Nobody said it'd be easy, they knew it was rough but, tough luck: While at first relationships may be easy, it takes a lot of effort. It’s hard work. Fights happen, bad situations come across, and the longer the relationship is, the more you learn about a person and their “flaws.”

    I fell in love today, there aren't any words you can say that could ever get my mind to change she's enough for me, she's in love with me: He’ll always love her, no matter what. No one could ever convince him to not love her. He is completely satisfied with her and her love for him. It’s enough for him.

    The only flaw, you are flawless: It isn’t ideal to be perfect, even perfection is flawed.

    So, she put his heart in a bag, he wouldn't ask for it back: She was possessive, she took his heart for herself, but blinded by love, he didn’t have a problem with this.

    He didn't want her to cry, she didn't want to be sad: Their relationship has dragged out for longer than it should have because neither the speaker nor his love wanted to hurt the others feelings.

    She said, "You better not leave me" This shit'll be fucked for days and weeks and months: They knew the break-up would be very painful after they had got so attached, but they were too deeply in love to care.

    When I add it all up, I can find it: hen he really sits back and thinks about the relationship, he can see the problems, but he chooses to ignore them for as long as he can as perpetuated by the following lines.

    It rattles my lungs, but my mind is tangled between your little flaws, your flaws, your flaws, your flaws: He is realizing that he never really loved this girl. He loved her flawlessness and now that he is seeing her flaws it is wracking his mind. The repetition emphasizes this. He wants to believe he loved this girl, but he is realizing he screwed up by telling this girl he loved her. He made it worse on them both because now they have to split. These lines emphasize the inner conflict felt by the speaker throughout the song.

    But I just can't wait for love to destroy us: This line has a double meaning
    1. In anticipation of love destroying the relationship
    2. Can’t stand waiting for love to destroy us (I need to end it now)
    The second meaning playing out through the rest of the song
