    General CommentThis song just keeps building, and building...amazing. I can definitely see some of the party lifestyle in it as well--as if each person coming to a party played a small part in the song. Over the course of the song the party grows and all the dialog and events blend together.

    General CommentThe narrator lives her life in fear, due to a past filled with regret and secrecy and a present that she doesn't feel she is in control of. She has either been alienated by those she once knew or has alienated herself from them, an incredibly hopeless state and feeling. I get the impression that she doesn't know who she is anymore. She lives in darkness, seeking any colorful glimmer of hope that comes her way.

    She isn't singing, "I need yourself!" She is singing, "I need your self!", because she doesn't feel as if she can be who she truly is without this other person in her life. This person she is singing to gives her an identity, something she doesn't feel she has on her own.

    She has secrets and she is willing to divulge them to satisfy her desires, but only covertly. It is clear that the narrator wants this person in her life, as friend or even a lover, but she isn't willing to out right say what it is that she wants from this person. She portrays herself as a mystery, and maybe that's all she will ever be: to herself and others.

    The music is absolutely gorgeous. I've had this song in my head all day. I thought she was singing, "commit yourself!" instead of "I need your self" and I was just repeating that mantra over and over. It really helped get me through the day. What's better than commitment, right? I'm kinda disappointed that the words in this song aren't as positive as I first thought.

    General CommentThe lyrics are a bit "??" but the whole song for me sort of epitomises the party lifestyle of teens. I can just imagine kids with all those now-cringe-worthy hairdoes drinking booze, doing drugs, making out and stuff with this music. That's the picture it paints for me, anyway.
