You hold me like a puppet in your clammy hands
Breathing your soft inuendoes
I can feel the music through your eyes
So much pain it hurts my soul

Take me where oleander grow
Show me all the things that I don't know

I'm outside
Let me in
I'm still shedding my original skin
Show me where I've never been
I'm still shedding my original skin

I am not afraid all I have to fear is myself
me or I
My curls have twisted themselves into knots

Twist and turn me inside out
Show me what bliss is about

I'm outside
let me in
I'm still shedding my original skin
Show me where I've never been
I'm still shedding my original skin

If I wait to run away
I'll be trapped another day

I'm still shedding my original skin
Show me where I've never been
I'm still shedding my original skin

    General CommentThe song means something odd to me. To me the way it sounds and everything it's about losing my virginity. I'm sure that's not what it means, that''s just how i see it.

    General Commenti think it does actually mean losing your virginity. and the feeling of becoming a woman and feeling romantic.

    General Commentits CLEARLY about losing virginity, its clearly about a 13 year old girl whose so happy that shes going out with a strong man,"you hold me like a puppet in ur clammy hands" she feels safe, she feels loved, she feels like a woman
