Marianas Trench – Porcelain lyrics

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

    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 can't understand how you feel hence, 'it's alright if you don't know what you need'.

    "porcelain" for me is a message to those who are lost and don't really know how to continue on. I've felt like this recently; my family falling apart, my friends have started splitting up and I've learned that I have severe anemia. "porcelain" reminds me of a good friend that I have, whom I've broken down in front of and somehow always makes things okay again, or at least helps me forget for a while that they were ever wrong. Lastly, it means that you will always be able to get back up again, given some time and the right person to lean on when you can't stand any longer. "we need never be hopeless because we can never be irreparably broken. " -quote by john green, looking for alaska.

    For me porcelain makes me think about my best friend. She never left me when I was in the darkest part of my life. I'll be thankful to her forever. She's the only one who knows the truth about my past and my break down. Even my parents don't know how lost I was, they don't know what I've done, but she does. I trust her more than everyone. It's good to have someone you know you can say the thing how they are, without retained.

    This song is my fav from the whole album the music the lyrics the melody just everything about it I love. All the songs on this album josh wrote and they go along with the story yes but they all have a meaning to him as well he writes about himself and the things that have happened to him it's just how he writes and he can't really help its his way to get it out. To me this song is about a girl who has had a kinda hard life or just something that has caused her to have a hard time to trust people and think she isn't good enough for him and he is just trying to gain her trust an tell her he will never hurt her and that he loves her flaws and all and she is perfect to him and perfect for him.

    This song is mainly about being flawed, knowing your flawed and that your partner is flawed too, but loving them anyways and letting them know despite the flaws they see, however countless they may seem, they're perfect. Your own piece of imperfect perfection, and that being imperfect, being flawed, makes them real, makes them captivating and alluring and absolutely everything you want. All in all this song is about love, and how when its real, when its true. The flaws don't matter, let go and let live and above all else let love.
