Woke up this early,
but only to figure out
the reason why I'm still around.
Waiting for thoughts
to resolve and become authentic,
still I don't know what to say.

Please lift your hand of my chest
'cause I can't breathe with your love locked so tight around me.
My love, it isn't as brave as yours, love.
I've learned to rather be safe than sorry.

Fearless of lust, there you lie in my bed
and don't hear how I am howling your name.
Wishing for you to wake up
and tell me to rearrange my mind.
I'm not the same as I was.

Please pull my brain out of my head
'cause I can't love with my thoughts wrapped so tight around me.
My love, it isn't as brave as yours, love.
I've learned to rather be safe than sorry.

You say that I should have learned by now
that my telepathic screams won't meet you while you sleep,
but still I try, so

Please peel my skin of my flesh
'cause I can't love with myself wrapped so tight around me.
My love, it isn't as brave as yours, love.
I've learned to rather be safe than sorry, so
please pull my brain out of my head
'cause I can't love with my thoughts wrapped so tight around me.
My love, it isn't as brave as yours love.
I've learned to rather be safe than sorry.

    My InterpretationWoke up this early
    but only to figure out the reason why I’m still around
    Waiting for thoughts to resolve and become authentic
    Still I don’t know what to say

    Please lift your hand off my chest ‘cause I can’t
    breathe with your love locked so tight around me
    My love it isn’t as brave as yours love
    I’ve learned to better be safe than sorry.

    Fearless of lust
    there you lie in my bed and don’t know how I am howling your name
    Wishing for you to wake up and tell me to rearrange my mind
    I’m not the same as I was

    Please pull my brain out of my head ‘cause I can’t
    Love with my thoughts wrapped so tight around me
    My love it isn’t as brave as yours love
    I’ve learned to better be safe than sorry.

    You say that I should have learned by now
    That my telepathic screams won't reach you
    While you sleep, but still I try, so

    Please peel my skin off my flesh 'cause I can't
    love with myself wrapped so tight around me
    My love it isn't as brave as yours, love
    I’ve learned to better be safe than sorry

    So please pull my brain out of my head cause I can’t
    Love with my thoughts wrapped so tight around me
    My love it isn’t as brave as yours love I’ve learned to better be safe than sorry.

    General CommentI love this song, and while I knew what it meant it didn't really impact me as much as it did when I actually experienced it. I remember being at this guys house and calling for him in my head while he was napping on the couch. I didn't want anyone to hear me wanting him. But I just wanted him to come and tell me to stop worrying about it. Then this song popped in my head, lol.

    And late at night when we'd sit on the couch and he's put his arm around my shoulders I couldn't breathe because I liked him and i wasn't supposed to.

    She's trying to get rid of all the influencing factors, her brain, her selfishness, his hand, and just love but it's hard. I didn't realize how hard it was.

    It's a forbidden and scary love, just like mine was.
