"Come Undone" as written by and Stephan Jenkins....
I've seen myself in a thousand faces
Strung out on life's path
I would add up what you mean to me
But I cannot do the math
And this fashionista's garden party
Well I had enough of that

'Cause the only one I come undone for is you
Yes the only one I come undone

But I'm a special lover sometimes
But you only touch a ghost
I'm a sycophantic courtier with an elegant repose
And needless to say you're the one that I need the most

'Cause the only one I come undone for is you
Yes the only one I come undone for is you
Well the only one I come undone for is you

I know I'm done (I)
And now I see the truth
I know I'm done (I)
Come undone for you
And you've been gone for so long
Waiting here for you
You've been gone for so long
Come undone for you

There are people in this lifetime that we should never meet
'Cause to be here now without you
Well, my life's so incomplete
I'll tell you what you mean to me and maybe then you'll see
Ahhh
Ahhh, nahh

'Cause the only one I come undone for is you
Yes the only one I come undone for is you
Oh the only one I come undone for is you

No, no

    General CommentThis is to me one of Vanessa's most beautiful songs. It's quirky and catchy and I love the instrumentation. It is basically about a person in love and how the loved one makes the person "come undone" and the person will do anything to be with the loved one.

    "Sycophantic courtier" means a person who will do anything to please.

    "Fashionista's garden party well I had enough of that" basically means that the person in love is a simple one.

    It is a song about how love can be simple.

    General CommentI love it. This song is so beautiful that I want to cry!

    She has such cute lines that I wish I wrote:
    "I would add up what you mean to me
    But I cannot do the math"

    Who wouldn't want to receive that as a sweet "I love you" type of text message? :p

    I feel lucky to have that one person in my life that I can be open with and share everything and who knows secrets I could never tell anyone else. Love does make you come undone, vulnerable, but willing to share. I think she sums it up nicely in the end. Sometimes I think of my boyfriend when we're away from each other and I just have to say, "Gosh, I'm so annoyed at how much I miss him! I hate how much I love him." But at the same time I'm so lucky to have someone I hate missing. :)

    Yes the only one I come undone for is you"

    General CommentI relate this to my best friend. I let all my guards down for him. I can tell him anything. I feel like I come undone for him, like I can just be and not worry about anything when I"m around him.
