“I hope that you see right through my walls”

Christina Perri – Arms Lyrics on LyricsMode
EXPLANATION
She's put her walls up, to keep people out, but she wants this guy to see through them and discover her pain.
EXPLANATION
She has found true love for the first time in her life, but the damage of past experiences has forced to her build walls to protect herself. The paradox is she protects herself with these walls, but she really wants him to see through, and save her, love her and yet loves him so much she doesn't want to hurt him either. So she is sacrificing her love and future happiness by trying to push him away.
