"Denial" as written by Flex Turner, Heidi Range, Amalle Berrabah, Elliott Malloy, Vanessa Brown and Keisha Kerreece Fayeanne Buchanan....
Somewhere in the back of my mind
Secretly I know you will find
Me amongst the blushing and glow
Deep beyond the things I don't show

Mystery's a beautiful thing
What a gift a woman can bring
Never let it out just like that
Let him slowly figure it out

How can a flower bloom
Just over a day?
And at night
You gotta let the water drain in

I didn't wanna fall in love with you
I didn't wanna know the things I knew
It wasn't till I looked into the mirror
Denial

You were like a power of nature
Telepathic beautiful creature
Understanding all of my weakness
Patient, loving, knowing you'd reach it

Cynical and hurt was just me
You were never supposed to be
Part of what I would call amazing
Took so long to finally see

How can a flower bloom
Just over a day?
And at night
You gotta let the water drain in

I didn't wanna fall in love with you
I didn't wanna know the things I knew
It wasn't till I looked into the mirror
Denial

I didn't wanna fall in love with you
I didn't wanna know the things I knew
It wasn't till I looked into the mirror
Denial

I see the way the wind blows
Like open minds for us
No complicated barriers
To hold us back

I didn't wanna fall in love with you
I didn't wanna know the things I knew
It wasn't till I looked into the mirror
Denial

I didn't wanna fall in love with you
I didn't wanna know the things I knew
It wasn't till I looked into the mirror
Denial

I didn't wanna fall in love with you
I didn't wanna know the things I knew
It wasn't till I looked into the mirror
Denial

    General CommentN ones commented this.
    And I want to know what its about.
    I really like the:

    'I didn't want to fall in love with you
    I didn't want to know the things I knew'

    I don't know why and i think that.

    'How can a flower bloom
    Just over a day?
    And at night
    You've got to let the water drain in'

    could mean, how can you fall in love with someone so quickly. you should let it take a while. Maybe?

    General Commentmy interpretation from the lyrics are basically when someone has a rebound from there one love and they find someone else knowing they still love there ex partner hence the the lyrics

    How can a flower bloom
    Just over a day?
    And at night
    You've got to let the water drain in

    I didn't want to fall in love with you
    I didn't want to know the things I knew
    It wasn't until I look into the mirror

    General Commenti love this song, and its very personal to me as it helped me so much througha recent break up. iv just written how i interpretted the song, especially through the break up.
    i think a few of the lyrics are wrong in this, so i changed them...

    Somewhere in the back of my mind
    Secretly I know you will find
    me amongst the blushing and glow
    deep beyond the things I don't show- its about pretending to be someone else, or not completely being your genuine self in a relationship, maybe, trying to be someone elses (yours partners?) ideal. not feeling good enough? hiding yourself because your scared of not being liked, and because of this, losing someone you care deeply about..?

    Mystery's a beautiful thing
    What a gift a woman can bring
    Never let it out just like that
    Let him slowly figure it out- let him earn your love, trust etc. make sure he appreciates you, and doesnt take you for granted.

    How can a flower bloom
    Just over a day?
    And a night
    You've got to let the water drain in- time heals all? the pain takes time to go away, youve got to learn to deal with it, then move on. 'let it hit you' so to speak

    I didn't want to fall in love with you
    I didn't want to know the things I knew
    It wasn't until I look into the mirror
    Denial- she was never being herself, she only realised when she looked in the mirror that she'd lost herself in this relationship. (perhaps part of the 'how can a flower bloom just over a day and a night etc. was about her finding herself again?) she didnt intend to fall so deeply in love, and perhaps her partner hurt her (cheated on her?) and she didnt want to admit or accept this..denial.

    You were like a power of nature
    Telephatic beautiful creature
    Understanding all of my weakness
    Patient loving, knowing you'd reach it... - she was completely in love, infatuated by him, he swept hr off her feet. but she didnt realise he wasnt at all what he seemed. 'understaning all of my weakness.' + 'knowing you'd reach it', he was manipulative, in it for something else? fake? perhaps him being patient and loving was all just an act.

    Cynical and hurt was just me
    You were never supposed to be
    Part of what I would call amazing
    It took so long to finally see- he left her hurt, and therefore cynical. he 'scarred' her. it took her a long time to get over him, and then finally see his true colours, and how he wasnt all he seemed.

    How can a flower bloom
    Just over a day?
    And at night
    You've got to let the water drain in

    I didn't want to fall in love with you
    I didn't want to know the things I knew
    It wasn't until I look into the mirror
    Denial

    I didn't want to fall in love with you
    I didn't want to know the things I knew
    It wasn't until I look into the mirror
    Denial

    I see the way the pain goes like open minds for us
    No complicated barriers to hold us back- shes moved on, shes no longer hurting, shes over him. she wont let him and how he hurt her hold her back, just as he has forgottton about her.

    I didn't want to fall in love with you
    I didn't want to know the things I knew
    It wasn't until I look into the mirror
    Denial

    I didn't want to fall in love with you
    I didn't want to know the things I knew
    It wasn't until I look into the mirror

    welll thats how i looked at it anyway ;)

    General CommentJust a thought, no idea if this is right but this was the way I intrepreted it

    'I didn't want to fall in love with you
    I didn't want to know the things I knew
    It wasn't until I look into the mirror
    Denial'
    -What about the way a person sees themself. They don't want to like their body, and do not like what they see in the mirror, therefore denial.

    Just something I thought I should share
