"Unloved" as written by and Jann Arden Richards....
There will be no consolation prize
this time the bone is broken clean
no baptism, no reprise and no sweet taste
of victory. All the stars have fallen
from the sky
and everything else in between
satelites have closed their eyes, the moon
has gone to sleep
unloved....unloved....unloved....unloved

here I am inside a hotel choking on a
million words I said
cigarettes have burned a hole and dreams are
drunk and penniless
here I am inside my father? arms
all jagged-bone and whiskey-dry
whisper to me sweetly now and tell me I will
never die
unloved....unloved....unloved....unloved

here I am an empty hallway
broken window, rainy night
I am nineteen sixty-two and I am ready
for a fight people crying hallelujah
while the bullet leaves the gun
people falling, falling, falling and I don? know
where they?e falling from
are they
unloved....unloved....unloved....unloved

hoping that the kindness will lead us
past the blindness and
not another living soul will ever have to feel
unloved....unloved....unloved....unloved
unloved....unloved

    General Commentit sounds to me like this is coming from the heart of someone who has been jilted many times, and has slipped into a deep dispair. unfortunately, they have accepted that they are destined to be 'unloved' and they are doomed to remain in this state...i hope i never feel the feeling that is conveyed in this song!

    General CommentI think this song is about war. I'm not that history-savvy, but w/e was happening in 1962 (I am nineteen sixty-two), she wrote about in the second to last paragraph. Take a look. I won't copy it here, b/c you have it right up there. dot dot dot...

    General CommentI love this song. One of my favourite Jann songs.

    The only thing that struck me was the significance of 1962 and being ready for a fight. The Vietnam War was in effect from 1959 until 1975 (I think). But I don't think that's what she was talking about.

    Jann herself was born in March of 1962, in Canada. Canada had a very small role in the Vietnam War, and Jann would have been very young while it was waging.
