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 I'm stumbling
I will bare it all... watch me unfold
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

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 I'm stumbling
I will bare it all... watch me unfold
Unfold

My soul
It's dying to be freed
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

Cuz 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 I'm stumbling
I will bare it all... watch me unfold
Unfold

I will allow someone to love me
I will allow someone to love me.

    So many people can relate to this sont cause so many people spend their lives pretending, trying to be someone else.. Someone better, stronger, someone a little less needy.. A little more flawless. And once theyre alone, they dont know who they are anymore.. They lose themselves. Sad.

    This song means so much. I mean ive been hurt by so many people friends and family that I dont know how to trust people anymore. In doing so, ive never been in a relationship because of this. Im sure that the way I am living is unhealthy, but on the other hand the environment I grew up in made me like this. Who knows maybe one day, I will open up and allow someone to love me as the song says.

    its funny, im going through this right now, ive been hurt so bad in the past from family, and exes...but someone found me and truly cares about me...and he keeps telling me to open up and be me and let my emtions go to stop hiding it. he tells me i always try to be the strongest but sometimes its ok not to be...and well, unfold...and its true. he says stop fighiting it, stop pushing me away...the song is perfect

    Unfold..the girl used to hide her feelings and what she truely is..she really wants to open up..it's just that she's afraid to do so..but she realized nothing will happen if she won't open herself to others..especially to that person she loves..so though she's afraid what will happen if she show herself..she will try to open up and unfold..
    =)
