If I should choose to live in my cocoon
Wrap myself in me, and cry myself to sleep
If I should choose to protect my tender heart
Build a shell from you, steal myself from you

If I should choose to fall apart
Don't you think you should let me?
If I should choose to die alone
You should forgive and forget me

If I decide I can't do it anymore
Try to be so hard, I'm trying to be so fucking hard
If I should choose to keep lying to myself
Pretend my mind is telling truths
Well I've got my own, so who are you?

I know
I know
I know

If I should choose to fall apart
Don't you think you should let me?
If I should choose to die alone
You should forgive and forget me

If I should choose to fall apart
Don't you think you should let me?
If I should choose to die alone
You should forgive and forget me
You should forgive and forget me
You should forgive and forget me

    General Commentshe's saying that nobody would really care if she decided she only needed her self, and abandoned the world. specifically, i'm thinking hide from love, from the pain of getting hurt. she doesn't think it's worth the pain.

    General CommentI think it's not only about love, known as relation love, but also friendship. I saw also some suicidal thoughts in it, but that's my personal view on the song. I thought it might be about saying goodbye to your friends, because the joy isn't worth the suffering any longer.

    General Commentthis is such a beautiful song, wanting to run away inside and forget everything, but habving friends dependant on you and knowing it would kill them if you killed yourself, and you just have this horrible horrible pressure on you

    General CommentI love this song so much, because I've felt exactly that way. It's about thinking it's no longer worth loving anyone because it hurts so much when that love and that trust is broken. The 'wrap myself in me and cry myself to sleep' is about the lonliness you would feel in the isolatiion you want. I think 'choose to die alone' is about suicide.

    That's what it means to me anyway, but that's what I feel sometiems, so maybe I would think that.
