As humans, when we fall in love we become so attached to them that being rejected or dumped causes lasting emotional pain. In some cases, it is even enough to drive you to suicide. They'll always be that someone in the back of your mind that you'll always love...

"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"

As you get rejected so many times you become to think of your "loves" as unintended, or out of bounds. You may give up on love altogether, but then in the future you will find that someone where the "more than friends" feature was just an unintended event happening magically over a long period of time. When people lose all hope on life they rely on others, this thing that will give them warmth and comfort and help them look on the bright side of life. It will help them out of depression and hence let then live a longer life (life extended). When you're in love, you feel as though you are begging for their return in that love. (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"

After falling out with a previous relationship where you still love the person, it is hard to get over them. It will leave you with shattered memories, and broken pieces in your mind that cause you to become upset when you remember them. When you're busy, you're occupied, these thoughts are causing you to put a hold on your life and you don't want to move on. The main healer in this is time. As time progresses, it will help mend your life as you learn to live with it. Once that is over, you are ready to move on. (I'll be there as soon as I can)

"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 could be the one I'll always love"

You can try and move on, but some people just cannot get over their previous love, and try and find a new love which is just hard to do. With the new girl you have found, you feel empty inside. You remember your previous relationship being more exciting and therefore you’re finding it hard and challenging with your current girlfriend to feel fulfilled. This results in your dreams not being as full compared with what your ex provided you with. It then leads you back down the dark route of trying to get back with your ex but your ex does not want you anymore. It shows a sign of change, sometimes the old is definitely better than the new in theory, but no matter how hard we try, it is hard to bring back the past.  We live in a progressive society, but in the rare luck that the past seeps back into the future, we'll just say "that was rather unintended."
