Discography > 7 inch > Unintended



You could be my unintended,
Choice to live my life extended,
You could be the one I'll always love.

You could be the one who listens,
To my deepest inquisitions,
You could be the one I'll always love.

I'll be there as soon as I can,
But I'm busy mending broken,
Pieces of the life I had before.

First there was the one who challenged,
All my dreams and all my balance,
She could never be as good as you.

You could be my unintended,
Choice to live my life extended,
You should be the one I'll always love.

I'll be there as soon as I can,
But I'm busy mending broken,
Pieces of the life I had before.

I'll be there as soon as I can,
But I'm busy mending broken,
Pieces of the life I had before.
Before you.

Extra information


Matt: There are a few unintended love songs as well. The song I wrote about the girl was written in the studio after a phone conversation with her. We called it ´Unintended´ because it came out of nowhere, and I didn´t mean it to happen, all of these feelings for this girl.


Produced and Mixed by Paul Reeve and Muse


Matthew Bellamy

Official video

Possible meaning:

In this video we can see people in a house together with Muse. The shapes of the people are different (computer edited, watch the screenshot).

Muse don’t have any interaction with the other people in the house. Muse don’t look at them and the they don’t look at Muse, it’s like they don’t see them. That’s why I think they’re like a (vague) memory of something that has taken place in the house. You can see Matt, Dom and Chris thinking or daydreaming about something. Possibly of a relationship, that’s broken up now.
