I don't ever want to meet you
Cause you're like porcelain
And I think it would crack
If I found out you were a brat
Stay perfect
Stay perfect

I don't ever want to meet you
Cause you're like porcelain
And I think it would crack
If I found out you were a brat
Stay perfect
Stay perfect

Nothing's as disappointing
And I don't want to be disappointed, Oh oh
Cause I'm just some kid you'll think about maybe in passing
But you're like my passion, for real
But distance is a lot less stress
And how you do what you do's still an uneducated guess
And I bet you'll think I'm crazy
But I think you're just a little bit amazing
Maybe…maybe I want to be you baby
Oh, I simply can't resist my imagination
No amount of patience validates my preoccupation
Let me say this: you look better famous

I don't ever want to meet you
Cause you're like porcelain
And I think it would crack
If I found out you were a brat
Stay perfect
Stay perfect

(Alpha-A-Bit)
Ahem
Dear Superhero whom I look up to from afar
Cause you're of a whole 'nother other galaxy
I know you might find this shit so bizarre:
I rather we never had to meet, had to speak
I think I know who you are in my imagination
But not too sure about reality
You're a superstar, with that glow one has to be
But you come across brighter in a magazine
Shine much more on a plasma screen
Now if that don't wake me like a bad dream (bad dream)
Sad scene like Mufasa in that stampede
Exactly why this calls for my evacuation
Before this conversation paints the picture
That my mind has painted
Faded
Cause it can get complicated to recognize your idol's tainted
Damn, is that a facelift?
Cause you look better famous

I don't ever want to meet you
Cause you're like porcelain
And I think it would crack
If I found out you were a brat
Stay perfect
Stay perfect

I don't ever want to meet you
Cause you're like porcelain
And I think it would crack
If I found out you were a brat
Stay perfect
Stay perfect

I don't ever want to meet you
Cause you're like porcelain
And I think it would crack
If I found out you were a brat
Stay perfect
Stay perfect

I don't ever want to meet you
Cause you're like porcelain
And I think it would crack
If I found out you were a brat
Stay perfect
Stay perfect

I don't ever want to meet you
Cause you're like porcelain
And I think it would crack
If I found out you were a brat
Stay perfect
Stay perfect

(Have you ever met somebody who was perfect til you met them? I have)

I don't ever want to meet you
Cause you're like porcelain
And I think it would crack
If I found out you were a brat
Stay perfect
Stay perfect

    General CommentI'd say this song's about the average person's obsession with famous people. They constantly keep up with the person's life (through magazines,television, etc.), but the famous person of course has no idea they exist, and could probably care less (Cause I'm just some kid you'll think about maybe in passing,
    But you're like my passion, for real). They idolize whoever they're obsessing about, but they also seem to be realizing how fake they are. They'd never want to actually meet the person, because they're image of them would be shattered (like porcelain). Stars are held up so high above the rest of society, but they really are not as wonderful as we think.

    My InterpretationI think its about coming across someone you Idolize. You meet them and they aren't who or what you thought they would be and its such a let down. Its better to seem from a distance and keep imagining them as perfect instead of being let down and finding out who they really are.
    Happened to me when I met Carrie Underwood, I loved her until I met her. I wish I never had so I could still keep her in my mind as who I thought she was... it was a great disappointment!

    My InterpretationI think it's about eying pretty girls, but not wanting to approach them or make them upset. Porcelain is a metaphor for how fragile these girls are.
