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
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
It's alright if you don't know what you need

Oh, when your heart releases,
You won't fall to pieces
You'll let those old diseases lie
Oh, 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

    I think its about kurt hummel from glee. Sue's nickname for him is porcelain and he's been through so much in his life: mother's death, dad's heart attack, all the bullying

    This song means everything to me. It means being strong and being there for your loved one even if they don't love you back. I believe it means putting that special person before yourself no matter how broken you are. It also means accepting the person you are. I think it's about showing how you feel -crying. Sometimes you cant understand how you feel hence, 'it's alright if you dont know what you need'.

    Everyone is like "porcelain" we all crash and "fallout" we all know what its like when theres only so much you can stand before you break. I was called a slut for four months straight and i burst into tears and nearly passed out in the bathroom bc i couldn't take it and that was only the start , this guy wouldnt stop im a girl i told my dad out of all people and he flipped he called the school, school board the police and everything, you have to tell someone or its never gonna get better. 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

    No matter how bad the pain you can stay strong and be perfect porcelain and not break.

    This song to me is josh ramsay telling a girl that he loves her so much that he is willing to wait for her if she needs to go sort some things out and that no matter what happens, even if she does move on, he will always be there for her.
