What I can remember
Is a lot like water
Trickling down a page
Of the most beautiful colors
I can't quite put my finger
Down on the moment
That I became like this...

You see I am the bravest girl
You will ever come to meet
Yet I shrink down to nothing
At the thought of someone
Really seeing me
I think my heart is wrapped around
And tangled up in winding weeds

But I don't wanna go on living
Being so afraid of showing
Someone else my imperfections
And even though my feet
Are trembling
And every word I say
Comes stumbling
I will bare it all... Watch me unfold

These hands that I hold
Behind my back are
Bound and broken
By my own doing
And I can't feel
Anything anymore
I need a touch to remind me
I'm still real


Unfold, unfold
Unfold, unfold

My soul
It's dying to be free
You see... I can't live the rest of my life
So guarded
It's dying to be free
It's up to me to choose...
What kind of life I lead


I will allow someone to love me [x4]

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl who's afraid of basically being loved. She doesn't remember when she became like this, but she just is. She's normally a very brave person but when it comes to "showing someone her imperfections" she becomes afraid and she doesn't want to go on like this. So she's going to "unfold" and actually let someone love her and not be afraid. She's probably afraid of getting hurt and she doesn't want to put her trust in someone who's going to hurt her.

    General CommentTo me, this song is about someone who pushes people away, who shuts people out. She's terrified of anyone seeing her true colors. But, she makes a promise to herself that she will eventually unfold and let pepole into her world...

    I can really relate to this song -- I know someone who's gone through this very struggle -- letting anyone get close enough to for love. Thankfully she overcame that struggle.

    Marie, I hope you can someday as well...

    General CommentI agree with gweber68 pretty much, it's a song about someone who builds up walls around herself but decides that one day she's going to unfold this box around her.

    General CommentI think she's afraid of failure; failure in a sense that she's not perfect and that she'll fail whoever she tries to love through her imperfections.
