I thought that hiding all my feelings
was protecting my heart
so I never built anything
high enough to fall apart
and what I was looking for
didn't know where to start
I can't believe this is happening

The day I met you
I said welcome to the rest of my life
cause you created a new me
and all the emptiness died
I was afraid to give love another try
Oh I can't believe this is happening

(chorus)
I know that this might get me in trouble
But it's time I let my defences down
Cause I am no longer afraid of a struggle
Oh I'll overcome
I'll overcome
oh i've overcome

Guess I'm addicted to happiness
I just can't get enough
so I decided to give a try and
surrender my trust
I've got no choice left
but to believe in us
and finally this is happening

(chorus)
I know that this might get me in trouble
But it's time I let my defences down
Cause I am no longer afraid of a struggle
Oh I'll overcome
I'll overcome
oh i've overcome

I finally let myself go
I let all my guards down
baby I'm yours now
you're in control
at the chains off my soul
and now I'm in love yeah

(chorus)
I know that this might get me in trouble
But it's time I let my defences down
Cause I am no longer afraid of a struggle
Oh I'll overcome
I'll overcome

I don't care anymore
I'll overcome
I've overcome

    Song MeaningTo me this is about a girl who decides to let "her guards down".She never dared to fall in love,because she might get hurt. There could be many reasons for her to protect herself this way (fear,bad experience in her past, shyness, lack of self-confidence...whatever) But now this girl has found the right guy.Finally she realizes that she needs to let herself go,to be herself otherwise she won't become happy.She admits to her own feelings eventhough she knows she might end up getting hurt. But for her it's worth the try "I got no choice"...She gives love another try. Of course the result of this is that "I'm in love"...she's happy and this guy "makes a new me, all the emptiness is gone"
    It is finally happening. She has overcome her fear and fallen in love again =)

    I really like this song,because it shows how much struggle love can be, how the past can rule your present life but by overcoming bad experiences you can become even happier than you were before.

    I believe that every girl has this kind of wall she's talking about.It's good that way cause guys shouldn't just get to our heart easily. They need to show us that they're worth it first.
    Ok, enough of that bull xD i know, i'm sorry

    Don't be afraid! When you meet the very right guy, you will know it. You can see it in his eyes, just look very close...run if he's not it

    General CommentEverytime I listen to this song it reminds me of "I bruise easily" by Natasha Bedingfield..They're both talking about how it's hard for them to let their guards down...but in the end they both do =)
