Description

Played heavily during the 1999/2000 tours as a lighter anthem and occasionally during 2001. It returned to the set list with recent 2007 gigs (played in the key of D insted of E). When it was played from 1999 through 2001, both Bellamy and Wolstenholme would play guitar. Matt's was electric and Chris' would either be acoustic or electric. Chris would also play the bass with a foot pedal controller. From 2007 onwards, Matthew has been playing guitar, Chris has been playing bass and Nicholls plays keyboards occasionally.

Additional information

Bellamy's explanation: "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".

On the Muscle Museum EP version, Paul Reeve provided backing vocals.[1]

Remixes

A remix exists, entitled "MG remix", by "Jirob". "Jirob"'s first name appears to be Matt, judging his url, and Jirob stands for "J in Red on Blue". The track begins with an oldie worldy effect, followed by a sped up dance section.

Lyrics

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
