I settle down
A twisted up frown
Disguised as a smile, well,
You would have never known
I had it all but not what I wanted
'Cause hope for me was a place uncharted
And overgrown

You'd make your way in
I'd resist you just like this
You can't tell me to feel
The truth never set me free
So I did it myself

You can't be to careful anymore
When all that is waiting for you
Won't come any closer
You've got to reach a little
More
More
More
More, more

Open your eyes like I opened mine
It's only the real world
A life you will never know
Shifting your weight to throw off the pain
Well you can ignore it
But only for so long

You look like I did
You resist me just like this
You can't tell me to heal
And it hurts remembering how it felt to shut down

You can't be to careful anymore
When all that is waiting for you
Won't come any closer
You've got to reach a little
More
More
More
More, More

The truth never set me free
The truth never set me free
The truth never set me free
So I'll do it myself

You can't be to careful anymore
When all that is waiting for you
Won't come any closer
You've got to reach out
Can't be to careful anymore
When all that is waiting for you
Won't come any closer
You've got to reach out
More
More
More
More, More

    This song is about a girl who wants to find true love, but every1 else doesn't agree w her definition of love. @ first I thought it was about dreams but then I read the pt about not feeling, and now I think it's about finding love. There's all these other people every1 wants her to be with, but she is resisting and tells them it's not working, but that's not helping so she has to go out on her own and find love and 'set herself free'.

    This is the true meaning behind it as hayley wrote in her diary of lyrics ;) please read it I hate when people interperate things diffrently and think they know what they are talking about then other people think the same thing.
    'For pety reasons, I lived under a rock in a corner for over half my teenage life. I closed myself off in order to sustain relationships with a limited amount of people I thought I could keep in their good side if I just did this or that I have since liberated myself to the freedom of following my own heart instead of chasing others! When I see people I’ m close to living the same prison – style of life that I forced myself into it hurts my heart. It makes me wonder why sometimes it so hard to clear the glass and look outside your little bubble. Go out and find adventure, live every single second. I have a favourite song for this very idea ‘’ one life, one chance’’. But now I can sing my own version.
