TAELA – “unforgivable” music video

“I wrote “unforgivable” about being so deeply attached to a toxic relationship that it would take your partner doing something completely unforgivable for you to leave. Having a trauma bond is the worst type of addiction. I heard someone say it’s worse than being addicted to drugs or alcohol because drugs and alcohol can’t text or call you begging for you to come back. As someone who’s been trauma bonded before, I was super inspired to write about what it feels like to have this attachment.” – TAELA explained

“unforgivable” is an introspective journey into the complexities of toxic relationships. Co-written with JP Saxe, the heart-wrenching lyrics of “unforgivable” delve into the concept of a trauma bond – a deep and often destructive attachment to a toxic relationship. With a heavy heart, TAELA sings, “Couple stabs in the back but I’m barely bleeding. Go ahead twist the knife let me really feel it. Sever every loose end, don’t leave a thread to hold onto. I can’t trust myself with the littlest reason to want you.”

“Do something unforgivable so I won’t wanna stay.”

“I thought about the things my ex did to get me to hate them enough to leave and say, ‘F*** it, I’m gonna just lay it all out there.’ And when I started teasing the song online, I was amazed by how many people resonated with the lyrics. I think it can be uncomfortable for some people to listen to but really healing for whoever needs to hear it.” – TAELA explained

TAELA is known for her unfiltered lyricism and heartfelt melodies. Her raw and unfiltered approach to songwriting shines through in “unforgivable.” She fearlessly lays bare her experiences, sharing the painful and uncomfortable truths that come with toxic relationships. Despite the discomfort, TAELA’s music offers a healing opportunity for those who can relate to her lyrics.

Furthermore, “unforgivable” is featured on TAELA’s new 14-track album, “life’s a bitch… but it gets better.” The project consists of songs that TAELA has meticulously crafted and released over the past year; garnering over 22 million streams/views on Spotify and YouTube.

“Every time you call, I can’t help but pick it up. I know that it’s bad but it’s never quite bad enough. You f*** up fast but I forgive you faster. I think it’s gonna take a full-on disaster. Could you please f*** my best friend at 3 in the morning? Tell me that being a mom makes me boring. Say I’m a b*tch, I’m a slut, I’m a f****** disgrace. Could you please steal my car to pick up your side piece? Blame it on me for not making you happy. ‘Cause I’m a b*tch, I’m a slut, I’m a f******* disgrace. Do something unforgivable so I won’t wanna stay.” – lyrics
