Don't hang up, can't we talk
So confused it's like I'm lost
What went wrong, what made you go
Don't pretend you don't know
This is me I'm unchangable

When did we fall apart
Or did you lie from the start
When you said, it's only you
I was blind, such a fool
Thinking we were unbreakable

[Chorus]
It was you and me, against the world
And you promised me forever more
Was it something that I said
Was it something that I did
Cause I gotta know what made me unbeautiful

[Verse 2]
I've been told what's done is done
To let it go and carry on
Deep inside I know that's true
I'm stuck in time, stuck on you
When We were still untouchable

[Chorus]
It was you and me, against the world
And you promised me forever more
Was it something that I said
Was it something that I did
Cause I gotta know what made me unbeautiful

[Bridge]
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
Cause I'm only dreaming
Get out, get out, get out, get out
Get out of my head now
Because we're much better altogether
Can't let go

[Chorus] x2
It was you and me, against the world
And you promised me forever more
Was it something that I said
Was it something that I did
Cause I gotta know what made me unbeautiful

It was you and me, against the world
And you promised me forever more
Was it something that I said
Was it something that I did
Cause I gotta know what made me unbeautiful

... Made me unbeautiful

    "It was you and me, against the world."
    I think, this line sums up everything in the song- she's singing about a lost love, a broken relationship, because it *was* what they had. And they no longer have it now. It's over. Evidently, it's about the end of a relationship- but it also goes much deeper than that, because she's questioning herself on whether she was the cause of it. Or whether she's just "a fool" because he promised her forever- but he couldn't do it. They all can't, in the end.
    Something we can learn from here- they all don't keep their promises in the end. Be strong, be the best you can be with yourself- and you deserve so much better than a bast*d who only lies to you.
    'Unbeautiful' is gutwrenching, because it's all about the past and mistakes of the past. One can't move on if one can't forget. And the truly tragic thing is that the girl always feels as if she's become "unbeautiful".

    I think it means that when your with someone then you feel like you can get through anything that steps in front of you. But when you break up you feel weak and your like its all over with and what you've said is what you have to say. And when you try to win them back you realize that you actually don't want them back because it has all been a lie or just not worth the trouble and its soo hard to let go of what you've had for so long and to think things would be better if you were back together. But sooner or later you will realize that they just aren't worth it.

    I think the meaning of this song is when you give ten years of your life to someone and realize that seven of those years were lies. Still to this day I ask myself where I went wrong when everyday he would assure me that everything would be ok that he would always be there. Making me believe that those words "I Do" actually meant something when all they were words with no meaning.

    I love what everyone's said on this. Because I feel exactly the same way about my exboyfriend. We broke up less than a week ago and its killing me and I'm usually really good at getting over people. But it's like I can't. I usually love talking to new boys. But it seems like I can't even do that. I don't feel anything else with other guys. All if feel is how much I miss the way I felt with my ex. But reading all these posts makes me feel better that I'm not alone. I'm not the only one completely hurt and vulnerable. So thank you.

    I love this song. It currently describes my situation with my ex boyfriend. We had everything planned it was me and him! It's so hard to see everyone at school at school and not cry. I have no idea what brought this on I thought we were stronger and could deal with anything that life threw at us! I miss him alot! I know what I feel and I know it's real. But I love this song beacuse I want to know what made me unbeautiful and what made him want to not work through stuff. But that's selfish of me to say. I just want him to be happy and if that's not with me. I hope he finds what he's looking for.
