Help, I have done it again
I have been here many times before
Hurt myself again today

And, the worst part is there's no-one else to blame

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small
I'm needy
Warm me up
And breathe me


Ouch I have lost myself again
Lost myself and I am nowhere to be found,
Yeah I think that I might break
I've lost myself again and I feel unsafe


Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small
I'm needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small
I'm needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

    This song is beautiful. I think it means that someone is in complete pain. Agony and no one is there she hurts herself and she blames herself for it someone take me in someone love me maybe it involves rape or not. But when I listen to it I remember when I was molested I remember and I use to cut myself to this song now don't pull the whole emo s*t on me because I did it for 5 years and I actually did it for reasons it was my way to cope to survive to get through and it has been so hard to give it up but every time I listen to this song I get lost.

    I think that this song is about a deep feeling of self loathing and depression that keeps recurring. She feels incredibly hopeless about her situation, and feels that she has no real friends. This song is referring to future friends, her way to kind of warn them what she can be like to deal with. Sia really feels vulnerable, and like she can't do it on her own anymore. She can't help herself, and keeps falling back into old habits, maybe even self harm. She is reaching out for someone to look after her, and help her and nurture her just like she's been needing for a long time. She wants someone to stick with her, get to know who she is and everything she stands for, but she's always seemed to lack this in her life. Instability is not uncommon for her, and so she loses her mind. She doesn't know how much further she can go with the mind she has. This is my perception.

    I think that this song means that something's going on in her life and she copes by abusing herself, "help i've done it again" cut, does drugs, drings alcohal, she's done it before and she's there again "i've been here many times before". "hurt myself again today" whatever she's going through she either abused herself again for somethings she's donw wrong "and the worst part is, i'm the one to blame" she's done something that she regrets, so she copes by hurting herself "ouch i've lost myself again" she hurt herself and she doesn't know what to do, she think that she might "break", die. She has noone to help or hold her and tell her it's okay "be my friend, hold me, wrap me up" she just needs someone.

    I think this song is open to interpretation but to me it means that she is causing self harm. Maybe she has depression or an eating disorder. I also think it means that she is in a relationship that is not working and maybe there are many broken promises, maybe there is no trust. "Help, I have done it again, I have been here many times before" makes me believe this.

    I think that the meaning of this song is someone who so desperately wants someone to see them. Too see past all of the pretences of everyday life and to see the torturous pain that they are in inside. Someone just to take a second out of there life to look beyond themselves and see the pain of others so they can feel like they matter and feel like they are not invisible.
