"Unforgivable" as written by Tiffany Arbuckle Lee and Matthew Ryan Bronleewe....
I'm never told that I am pretty
I'm never told that I am kind
And my soul burns now with fire
Deep inside

I want to become brave and courageous
Not buried in self-pity of my own
Ashamed and alone from all
That's been done to me
It's not my fault I remind myself

You say you don't be afraid
But I feel afraid
You say you don't laugh or cry
But I show emotion
You say food will be on the table
And birds in the sky
But I'm hungry
So hungry
And it's cloudy outside

You never loved me like a daughter
You never even loved yourself
And now you treat me like a burden
Just another object on your shelf

I want you to know that I love you
And this pain that I carry's not my own
Ashamed and alone
From all that's been done to you
It's not your fault
I remind myself

No matter what I've done
Or is done to me
Nothing unforgivable
Or unable to be set free

    General CommentI first saw this song on Z-TV about five years ago, never heard form it again, and then made my sister find it on WinMX. ^_^ I love this song. (Though the lyrics seem to be a bit off... maybe my ears need tuning.)

    It's about a girl/woman/female who is just beginning to come to terms with her past. It really breaks at the bridge:

    "No matter what I've done/Or is done to me/Nothing is unforgivable/Or unable to be set free..."

    And... yeah.

    General CommentThis song is again about a girl being abused by her father. It's about her coming to terms with her father, knowing its not totally his fault that he did the things that he did to her. Tiffany actually wrote this song after recieving a letter from a young girl, similar to damaged.

    General CommentThat makes sense. I think the message in this one is more obvious though. In Damaged, it sounds like she's mixing it with a message about a harmful relationship - but not an incestuous one. Maybe. That's my take.

    General CommentI don't know if anyone wants to go here, but I really think this song is about her relationship with God, and how that relationship will provide all of the things that relationships with other people can't.

    There is a verse in the bible that says "look at the robins, they do not worry about what they will eat the next day. If I provide for the robins think of how much I will provide for you, for I love you more." That's a rough paraphrase but that's what I think of when I hear the chorus. It's about struggling to have faith that God will provide for all of your needs. That's how I've interpreted it, cause I can't argue with the author though.

    I really like this song.
