"Invincible" as written by Chantal Kreviazuk and Raine Maida....
I thought I had the right day, but I was in the wrong place.
I tried to open a door, but got it slammed in my face.
I'm at the back of the line, feels like eternity.

Well, they tell me I'm gettin' close, but I know I'm still far.
You can dress me up, but you can't cover my scars.
I've become a professional at hide and seek.

I'm a danger to myself.

I can take a wrong turn, you're right behind me.
Crash and burn, I know you'll find me.
As long as you're here, I'm invincible.

I can call your name and you'll come running.
It's pouring rain, you'll make it sunny.
As long as you're here, I'm invincible.

Want to be part of the cure, but I'm part of the disease.
I can chase butterflies, but I get stung by the bees.
Sometimes I think too much, forget my clarity.

I bought every self-help book that I could fit on the shelf.
Too many Downward Dogs, they can be bad for your health.
I don't know who I am, so much for therapy.

I'm a danger to myself.

I can take a wrong turn, you're right behind me.
Crash and burn, I know you'll find me.
As long as you're here, I'm invincible.

I can call your name and you'll come running.
It's pouring rain, you'll make it sunny.
As long as you're here, I'm invincible.

I'm not the same old girl, no.
I want a brand new world.

I can take a wrong turn, you're right behind me.
Crash and burn, I know you'll find me.
As long as you're here, I'm invincible.

I can call your name and you'll come running.
It's pouring rain, you'll make it sunny.
As long as you're here, I'm invincible.

I thought I had the right day, but I was in the wrong place.
I tried to open a door, but got it slammed in my face.
I'm at the back of the line, feels like eternity.

    General CommentOMG this so relates to my life. The meaning seems pretty clear and I can't believe no one has commented yet. The song is amazing in so many ways!!
    So my interpretation:
    She's going through some stuff in her life and just can't seem to get things right. She's trying to be happy and live her life the way she wants to live it but it just doesn't seem to be working for whatever reason so she feels like life is almost against her, hence the 'I'm at the back of the line, feels like eternity'. It's like she's saying that she's waiting for her happiness to come but it seems forever away.
    People keep telling her that things have to turn around but she just can't figure out when that'll happen(hence the 'Well, they tell me I'm gettin' close, but I know I'm still far'). It sounds like maybe she was in an abusive situation before or maybe she's just had some bad luck. Maybe the scars are emotional and she can't get over something and therefore she's unhappy and everyone can see through her fake smiles and acts. So she says she's become a pro at hide and seek, making me think that she's learned how to pretend she's happy and is afraid to let her true colours show in fear of people not understanding her.
    She feels that she's a danger to herself because she knows what she's going through and how she's hiding it but she can't seem to help herself out of the rut.
    But then she finds this guy, or something, that just gets her for who she actually is. She opened up to him (whether as a friend or bf or gf or husband or whatever) and she can count on them. She knows that if she screws up, he’ll be there with her for support. She knows that if she ‘crashes and burns’, he’ll come looking. When he’s around, she feels like everything is right. She feels invincible because she knows that no matter what she screws up, he won’t let her screw herself up/he will still be there to care for her.
    She feels that if she needs his help, with anything, he’ll lend a hand and do everything in his power to cheer her up.
    ‘Want to be part of the cure, but I'm part of the disease. I can chase butterflies, but I get stung by the bees. Sometimes I think too much, forget my clarity.’ This makes me think that she keeps screwing up no matter what her intentions are. She tries to let herself be happy but then something comes back to bite her in the ass despite her best intentions.
    So she tries to fix herself with all those books and yoga (downward dog pose?) but realizes that to fix herself, she has to know who she is/was before she got all screwy and lost. So what good is self help and therapy if she doesn’t know what she’s trying to fix because she’s too messed up?
    But in the end, this guy, or whatever, had found her and with him, she feels whole. She feels like nothing can go wrong.
    And I know no one cares, but that is so the story of my life. I went through a phase where I felt so lost and I didn’t even know myself anymore. I scared myself and was confused. But with this one guy, I felt whole. He would bring me back to reality when I got screwed up. He didn’t judge me when I broke down. So with him, I feel invincible. I know that no matter what, no matter what I do or say, he’ll be there to fix me or at least catch me when the bees sneak up and sting me while I’m being naive and happy...
