You thought by now you'd have it figured out
You can't erase the way it pulls when seasons change
It hurts sometimes to find where you begin
But you are perfect porcelain

The slow and simple melody, of tears you cannot keep from me
It's alright if you don't know what you need

I'm right here when,
You need someone to see
It's not speak or forever hold your peace
It's alright to take time and find where you've been
You are perfect porcelain

The slow and simple melody, of tears you cannot keep from me.
Its alright if you don't know what you need.

When your heart releases
You won't fall to pieces
You'll let those old diseases lie
And your heart releases
You won't fall to pieces
And your breath comes crashing in
Like perfect porcelain

The slow and simple melody, of tears you cannot keep from me
It's alright if you don't know what you need

    My OpinionI had struggled with anorexia my entire adolescence. I believe that's what Josh Ramsey wrote this song about. The line that gets to me is "and your breath comes crashing in, like perfect porcelain." Its so true. When you get healthy again, your breath comes crashing in and suddenly you think clearly and everything gets better. Its such a good song!

    Song MeaningAm i the only one that thinks this song has something to do with religion? :p
    I mean that's what i think that he's singing representing God's thoughts to all of us. 'tears u cannot keep from me' 'it's not talk or forever hold your peace' and porcelain maybe refers to how god created us

    My InterpretationMy interpretation of this song is as follows:

    "The way it pulls when season's change"
    There is a girl who is hurt and broken from a past love.

    "You are perfect porcelain"
    The voice of the song knows that this girl is the one for him. He thinks she is the perfect one.

    "I'm right here when you need someone to see. It's not speak or forever hold your peace"
    He is saying that he will wait for her. He will be there for her when she finally heals, but to take her time because he will be patient.

    "It's alright to take your time and find where you've been... It's alright if you don't know what you need."
    He loves her but he is telling her to take her time and that it's okay to be confused about everything.

    "When your heart releases you won't fall to pieces"
    When she let's go of this past love, she won't crumble to nothing because he will be there for her.

    "You'll let those old diseases lie"
    The singer is anticipating that she will finally come to the realization that her past love was not meant to be, and that she'll finally be able to move on. (Hopefully with him!)
