Unconditional

Words & Music by James Kennedy

'Unconditional' is a Pop Rock song & the 2nd song on the 2017 James Kennedy album 'Home'. The words, music & production are by James Kennedy.

'Unconditional' was the 1st single from the album 'Home' and one of Kennedy's most popular songs. Instruments on the recording include Drums, Bass, Guitars, Piano, Acoustic guitar & vocals. The emotional & uplifting song is an honest tribute to unconditional love in all its forms and the accompanying video made by Scott Carey includes footage of real families from South Wales in their homes, including Kennedy's own. 'Unconditional' is a traditional song format song including 3 choruses, 3 verses & a middle 8 all in just over 2 minutes and 40 seconds.

During Kennedy's emotional 'meltdown' of 2016 he says that he lashed out at all of his family & friends and isolated himself from everyone for several months. It was only after spending this time reflecting on his life that he came to truly appreciate how blessed he was to have them in his life and 'Unconditional' is a vulnerable & honest message to those in his life that he loves them all despite all the 'dysfunction', fighting & human mistakes. The song is not a sugar coated version of a love song in that Kennedy doesn't state that anyone is perfect, that life is fair or that relationships are always easy but rather that we are all far from perfect, that is ok and that real unconditional love is more powerful.

LYRICS

There’s something that I’ve gotta say

I know we get caught up in the day by day

But it don’t need to take a minute or two

To remind you

That we’ve been through so much

These words just ain’t enough

It’s unconditional

And I don’t care at all

If it’s dysfunctional

It’s Unconditional

Sometimes I stop and I just watch you

And I wonder if you only knew

That I’m the richest person alive

‘Cos I have known you and had you in my life

Though life can be so tough

It never changes us

‘Cos it’s unconditional

We fight, we break

And God knows we make mistakes

But it’s unconditional

Home, home

Wherever you are is my home

I can’t imagine life without you there

And I wanna say thankyou for everything

And I wouldn’t change a single part

Of this crazy journey of ours

It’s unconditional

There’s nothing you could ever do

To stop me loving you

It’s unconditional
