This song shows a lot of my insecurities, and the inspiration came from a real life situation. The chorus plays off how similiar (and ironically so) the words "united" and "untied" are. This song means a lot to me, but I'd like to hear other people's opinions on it. The video for it is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxUVhQr3FMg

I've never been too good at math
But 2 - 1 means I lost my other half
You showed me your world, and I showed you my way
But I forgot to show you a reason to stay
My personality is a composite of the reject pile
I'll be the first to tell you that I'm hardly worthwhile
My flaws chased you away like guard dogs to my heart
They got rid of a good thing before it could fairly start

CHORUS:
United we stood, untied we fall
I cut the knot from your rope, hanging from the gallows so tall
I might've saved your life from my series of mistakes
But I lost the best part of me the day you slipped away
I'd love to tie you back together, start over from it all
Because united we stood, untied we fall.

I'm rarely right, so correct me if I'm wrong
But you never know just what you got until it's gone
I second-guessed myself a second too late
It's like I got to the station at a minute past, when the train left at 8
It's sad to think it took you leaving me
For me to open my eyes wide enough to see
I'd wait here forever waiting for you
I learned my lesson, now what do I do?

CHORUS:
United we stood, untied we fall
I cut the knot from your rope, hanging from the gallows so tall
I might've saved your life from my series of mistakes
But I lost the best part of me the day you slipped away
I'd love to tie you back together, start over from it all
Because united we stood, untied we fall.

Each mistake is a sharper blade
That cut down your tree, sent you spiraling from me
It may have been a spontaneous series of events-
Doesn't mean I did a thing to stop it.

CHORUS:
United we stood, untied we fall
I cut the knot from your rope, hanging from the gallows so tall
I might've saved your life from my series of mistakes
But I lost the best part of me the day you slipped away
I'd love to tie you back together, start over from it all
Because united we stood, untied we fall.
