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 wus molested
    i remember and i use to cut myself to this song
    now dont pull da whole emo shit on me
    becuz i did it fer 5 years and i actually did it fer reasons
    it was my way to cope
    to survive to get through
    and it has been so hard to give it up
    but everytime i listen to this song
    i get lost

    This is a beautiful song. I think it means she's been in a deep hurt and trying to get back to where she was before

    This song takes on a different meaning to me... To me it is about self-harm "hurt myself again today" this song really means alot to me... Because i've been there before and needed someone to "wrap me up" and "breathe me" life...

    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 cant do it on her own anymore. She cant 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 doesnt know how much further she can go with the mind she has. This is my perception.

    I think it means she is heart broken and needs a friend to help her , be honest to unfold her true identity to look inside her and really see the real her and not the person she pretends to be ,
