I know that you've come
To end my shame
And dig up my empty scars
Just to cut them again
Have you ever been sown shut?

I'll lay my hands down
To comfort your empty soul
It never forgets
It lies in your skin beneath your back bone

I tried to hide
I don't want to be afraid
Of letting go, of someone like you
Another life another story
How will I know?

This time I can't speak
I'll scratch on my itchy wounds
It never forgives
A bed of your broken nails to lay on

I tried to hide
I don't want to be afraid
Of letting go, of someone like you
Another life another story
How will I know?

How will I know?

I don't want to be afraid [x2]
Of someone like you
I don't want to be afraid of letting go

    General CommentThis is definitely a song about trust issues. the whole part of not wanting to be afraid of someone like you...totally atleast to me means he doesn't want to be afraid when the right person comes around, but all the wrong people keep staying in his life just to destroy him.

    General Commenti agree that this song is about trust

    in the first verse he talks about he automatically doesnt trust the new person in his lofe, and he doesnt want to be afraid

    General CommentI've never thought about the trust issue, but I do completely agree.

    I also think it's about someone continually going through the same things, or being afraid to let go of the one person that might just be the right one for them.
