Say that I'm changed
Say I'm different
Maybe I finally understand
Say I've let go
Say that it's obvious
I tell myself over and over
And over and over again

I'm ready I'm ready
I'm ready to believe

Tell me I'm strong
Tell me I'm weak
Tell me I'll never, never bend
Tell me I'm fire
Tell me I'm cold
Cold I tell myself over and
Over and over again

I'm ready I'm ready
I'm ready to believe

'Cuz I want to feel my heart
Yes I want to feel my heart
Yeah I want to feel feel feel my heart

So tell me I'm strong
Tell me I'm weak
Tell me I'll never understand
Oh, but I'm ready
I'm ready I'm ready to believe

    General CommentOne of the most haunting songs I've ever heard in my life.

    I think the song's just about someone who wants someone to reach out and touch them. They've been through something, something terrible, they've locked themselves away emotionally and they're ready now for someone just to notice them again.

    General CommentThese are the lyrics for the a capella version.
    There is also another version on her myspace, called All The World I Tell Myself, which I posted the lyrics for.
    Love both versions, though
