"Vulnerable" as written by Alex James, Dean Robert Gillard, Matt Ward and Nina Sofia Marie Woodford....
Share with me the blankets that you're wrapped in,
because it's cold outside (cold outside, it's cold outside).
Share with me the secrets that you kept in
because it's cold inside (cold inside, it's cold inside).

And your slowly shaking finger tips
show that you're scared like me.
So, let's pretend we're alone.
And I know you may be scared
and I know we're unprepared,
but I don't care.
Tell me, tell me,
what makes you think that you are invincible?
I can see it in your eyes that you're so sure.
Please don't tell me that I'm the only one that's vulnerable.
Impossible.

I was born to tell you I love you.
Isn't that a song already?
I get a B in originality.
And it's true, I cant go on without you,
your smile makes me see clearer.
If you could only see in the mirror what I see.

And your slowly shaking finger tips
show that you're scared like me.
So, let's pretend we're alone.
And I know you may be scared
and I know we're unprepared,
but I don't care.
Tell me, tell me,
what makes you think that you are invincible?
I can see it in your eyes that you're so sure.
Please don't tell me that I'm the only one that's vulnerable.
Impossible.

Slow down, girl,
you're not going anywhere.
Just wait around and see.
Maybe I'm much more, you never know what lies ahead.
I promise I can be anyone, I can be anything.
Just because you were hurt doesn't mean you shouldn't bleed.
I can be anyone, anything.
I promise I can be what you need.

Tell me, tell me,
what makes you think that you are invincible?
I can see it in your eyes that you're so sure.
Please don't tell me that I'm the only one that's vulnerable.
Impossible.

    General CommentThere are so many people who could relate to this song. It's basically about two people and is the stereotype of most relationships. Where one person is ready to move on and the other person is afraid of feeling vulnerable.
    great song

    General Commenti love this song.

    what i think it means:
    a boy is absolutely in love with this girl... more than anything. and she cares and feels for him... but it scared to tell him that she loves him too, due to a past heartbreak. she remains distant and cold, and he says he can change if that's what it takes of have her. he loves her, and she's scared, basically.


    this really hits home. REALLY.
    i was in love with a boy once. completely in love. and he broke my heart. and my boyfriend now cares about me more than anything, he says it all the time. he tells me he loves me, he even said that he could change for me. (i never want him to, though). but i'm terrified to tell him i love him because i don't want him or i to get hurt... but i do care about him more than anything.
    EXACTLY like the song.

    beautiful.

    General Commenti think this song... is about anorexia. it's kind of odd, but the line "if you could only see in the mirror what i see" kinda of shows that...
    also, there's the "and your slow shaking fingertips show" cuz people who don't eat tend to shake a lot.
    i think the guy is telling the girl that he's there for her. she thinks "well, it won't happen to me- i won't get that bad" but... he can see through her plan. and i also think that when it's like "slow down girl- you're not going anywhere" it's saying something about her needing to slow down with her problem.
    "and it's true i can't go on without you" is talking about how if something happens to her... he can't go on, he won't be able to make it without her.

    anyways, i think this song is really sweet...

    General Commenti ALWAYS thought this song was about sex
    & virginity.

    still do.
    though the other theories about love are nice.
