I would never leave you broken hearted
You'll never be alone or made to feel discarded
As long as I'm alive I'll finish what I started

Years'll go on,
Your pretty face'll grow strong and hardened
We'll own a small patch of land outside of the town, we'll grow a garden
And after I've departed you will never know if your love was unconditional

I tried growing up and I found that it's more appealing
I stop hurting myself and turn my hands out where you can see me
And I know that it is a good thing
That you don't have to love me
Unconditionally
It won't be necessary
To love me unconditionally
It won't be necessary
To love me unconditionally

    General CommentSuch a phenomenal love song. It plays well on the concept of the idea that you love someone unconditionally--he's saying that she'll never know because her love will never be tried in that way. He will treat her well and be so faithful and awesome that she'll always just wonder, "Was my love unconditional?"

    Freaking awesome. I love this band.

    General CommentGrotepas sums it up perfectly. Such an amazing love song.

    My only change to the lyrics would be,
    Instead of:
    And I know that it is nothing

    I think it should be:
    And I know that it is a good thing
