  • Oh no, did I get too close oh?
    Oh, did I almost see what's really on the inside?
    All your insecurities
    All the dirty laundry
    Never made me blink one time

    Unconditional, unconditionally
    I will love you unconditionally
    There is no fear now
    Let go and just be free
    I will love you unconditionally

    Come just as you are to me
    Don't need apologies
    Know that you are all worthy
    I'll take your bad days with your good
    Walk through this storm I would
    I'd do it all because I love you, I love you

    Unconditional, unconditionally
    I will love you unconditionally
    There is no fear now
    Let go and just be free
    I will love you unconditionally

    So open up your heart and just let it begin
    Open up your heart, and just let it begin
    Open up your heart, and just let it begin
    Open up your heart
    Acceptance is the key to be
    To be truly free
    Will you do the same for me?

    Unconditional, unconditionally
    I will love you unconditionally
    And there is no fear now
    Let go and just be free
    'Cause I will love you unconditionally (oh yeah)

    I will love you
    I will love you
    I will love you unconditionally Writer/s: Henry Russell Walter, Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, Lukasz Gottwald, Martin Max Sandberg

  • Thomas Babineau from Kiln,msI Wrote the Lyrics to UNCONDITIONALLY.
    I can tell You She didn't discuss this song with Me.
    But to Hit Home.
    I have A partner guy I've been with 17 years at that time. 3.9 Grade Average never brought a Book home Then He found Himself Johnathon in Self Destruction he hated his life where he was Kiln,MS home of Brett Favre nothing else. Drug infestations at all three convenience Stores. They'd Drop drugs off in His lap. Call him made sure they almost Ruined my Love of my Life.
    So I tried being Kind to him to get him to Quit. I Tried being Hateful. I locked the Rod iron Gate to my Farm and He smashed the Gate bent it real good with His Jaguar. Then he Overdosed I sat with him sent him to Detox $4,000
    A week after release high as a Kite again peaking through the Windows barely down.
    We moved to my Sisters he Had drug dealers deliver there.
    I called the Police. They asked what do you want me to do as small towns we know Everyone I said Make him leave if he's going to Get High. Go to the Beach in Waveland MS.
    didn't work night after night I'd go out to the car knowing one day of find him Dead.
    So I Tried to Write a Song That night before I played down Lyrics.
    "How to Love Like Jesus"
    I got Writers Block for the First time.
    So I layed my notebook down.
    Said a Prayer God I want to Love Like Jesus I almost Hate Johnathon right now I've tried everything I can't Stop Him. Said my Prayer went to sleep.
    Woke up around 2:30 a.m.
    Notebook near And Out Came UNCONDITIONALLY.
    THE INSECURITIES are the Sin Nature of Our Flesh because I didn't want to offend anyone. So God Told Me Basically I got to Love Him UNCONDITIONALLY look over his insecurities how he was troubling me Hurt like a drowning Friend only I couldn't Rescue Him. But to love UNCONDITIONALLY is how to like Jesus Christ.
    I told Johnathon that night I love You UNCONDITIONALLY and I want you to read These Lyrics he said no I'll read them tomorrow may I lay down and go to sleep with you just one more time. I said go take a Shower get that Poison off of You put on some clean Clothes.
    I Sang the Song and Recorded it that night as The Spirit of God Was in Me.
    I Played it for my Sister Jeanne Babineau Kilpatrick that morning i told Her this isn't my Best Song but its Got the most Meaning it Will Make it to #1!
    I Was not Hopeful I was Certain.
    So Thanksgiving Day that year Johnathon goes to Bahamas to get away and clean his life up.
    I got a job At A Gay Bar "The Oz in NOLA"
    I got a poor man's copy and kept the SD card from me Singing UNCONDITIONALLY.
    and i wished as i was driving for Katy Perry to come in as Famous people Frequent NOLA BARS.
    I didn't know her from Adam.
    But this eloquent Strawberry blonde walks in on a Quiet Day and Belts out a Tune like Greatness echoes through the Bar.
    I got introduced to Her ElIzabeth and She had An older Prestigious lady with blonde hair as well.
    Asked her if She'd be interested in looking at one of my songs.
    Copyright all over all pages date and time I wrote it signed by Me.
    She reads it. I thought she Left it on my Bar as there was only 3 Customers.
    Shs Hugs me as I come around most classy girl I've met. Puts coat on her manager or mom and I asked Her to hug the Colored guy at the other side of the Bar as he seemed saddened.
    As I walk back behind the Bar She walks out the Doors to Bourbon St says Thanks for the Song.
    I did not give it to Her to have.
    But I couldn't watch the Bar and Chase her down.
    But when I was in Huntsville AL I HEARD IT.
    It was bitter sweet.
    Only thing I got was a nude picture from her sent to me.
    Broke my heart that simeone so eloquent could not call write facebook contact me somehow
    to say congratulations thanks I owe you big time nothing. But a nude picture for a gay guy.
    Kathyrn Ekizabeth Hudson I still want to get compensation for my lyrics which trigured off your tour.
    There is No logical Reason She cannot get in touch with me or Her record label or her Manager please.
    She said on Her Interview about the Song;
    " I was going through a Dark time."
    No I told her I was going through a Dark time. And She thinks Her Depression was bad lately so was mine after all that and not even a CALL... Tommybabineau
    "The Truth Shall Set You Free Elizabeth
  • Venus from UsaMy absolute favorite song, lyrics and video to date by Ms Perry. Her "Wide Awake" is a close second and " Firework" which is the first song I ever heard from her, has THE most profound place in my heart! My youngest daughter with whom I've been sadly estranged from, reached out and asked me to watch it in 2010. Simply STELLAR lyrics, production, arrangements, and cinematographic conceptualizations for all three projects! Her vocals and wardrobe choices in the first two videos I mentioned are fantastic!!! It would be a dream come true and an honor to meet her with my daughter one day...WELL DONE Ms Katy!
