I'm your puppet
I'll learn to love it
and I'll undress
if you need it
but please don't need it
if you need it
I'll scream out

weave a secret
I will sweep it
beaneath the carpet
where you'll keep it
how weak is that?
wish I was worth it
to you

review my wishes
for fair weather
'cause I know if the clouds with rains or snows
you wont be there
how weak is that?
wish I was worth it
to you

    General Commenti agree with everything everyone's said, but i came up with my own interpretation of the second stanza:

    weave a secret
    I will sweep it
    beaneath the carpet
    where you'll keep it
    how weak is that?
    wish I was worth it
    to you

    i agree with the "don't tell" comment.
    "weave a secret" - basically, do what he's been doing.. abusing and using.
    "i will sweep it/beneath the carpet" - she'll brush it away, just like everything else.
    "where you'll keep it" - he obviously has no problem doing so.

    it really is a beautiful song.

    General Commentthis song is so cute. she sings it so well. i love how most of their lyrics are about being used but loving it because she loves him. its so relateable to girls.

    my take, is that this is about a "don't tell" relationship. she's being used, but is too naive to walk away & she loves him; he has her wrapped around his finger like a "puppet"
    it makes her feel worthless.


    why do we do it?

    i relate, sadly.

    General Commentshe loves him so much but he's just using her. she can't stand it, knowing that he doesn't really care like she does. but at the same time, she can't stop loving him. she just wishes he would change & love her back.

    General Commenti was in a relationship like this recently. "how weak is that / wish i was worth it, to you" the speaker is in a relationship in which she loves him, but she knows he doesn't reciprocate that love, it seems as if he's just using her for sex. ("i'll undress if you need it, but please don't need it") she knows that he won't be there for her in bad times ("review my wishes, for fair weather...") but still she stays with him anyway and accepts it. very sad.

    General Commenther voice is heart melting
    just wondering, does anyone else get the same google advertisement that says "My name is Drora Rimer and I love to eat little children?" on this page?
    Because at first it made me laugh, and now I'm just slightly worried lol
