I guess I just must be a daredevil
I don't feel anything until I smash it up
I'm caught on the cold, caught on the hot
Not so with the warmer lot
And all I want is a confidant
To help me laugh it off

And don't let me ruin me
I may need a chaperone

Say I'm an airplane
And the gashes I got from my heartbreak
Make the slots and the flaps upon my wing
And I use them to give me lip
Hip hip for the lift
Hip hip for the drag
I want them all in my bag
Oh give me anything and I'll turn it into a gift

But don't let me ruin me
I may need a chaperone

Seek me out
Look at, look at, look at, look at me
I'm all the fishes in the sea
Wake me up
Give me, give me, give me what you got
In your mind, in the middle of the night

Maybe you let me look out for you
Protect what I found in you
And never let it starve
Then that way, you let me stay
Skirt in my skirt like I want to
And I will try hard to hold onto you with open arms

But don't let me ruin me
I may need a chaperone

    My InterpretationEven though it doesn't sound like it, this song is very dark. I think this song is about how she has a tendency to want to hurt herself or mess things up, and needs somebody to save her from herself. Very beautiful, though

    My InterpretationI think in this song Fiona sings about herself and in a way she seeks protection from her own self because she is the one who hurts herself most, not other people. She wants and needs to be loved but she is too scared and needs a shelter. Btw, Fiona´s my favourite singer (and has been over the years!) and I´m really thrilled to have her back with us.
