Holly cow. This man knows me through the song -_-
"To me the song is about someone sufferring with a personality disorder. They show the person they love a mask, believing that is what you want to love.Instead borderlines have such insecurities, they feel they aren't worthy of love, so 'they try to push you out' to see if you love them.They feel if they drop their mask, you won't like what you see.The stupidity of the situation is that if they didn't act in the way they did, you'd stay with them forever.It is so hard for them to face their problems, probably 20 times harder than stopping smoking, they don't show people 'the place they know' because they believe 'it's not pretty there' and no-one can therefore help.Daft thing is, it's probably the opposite. Unless you've been in a relationship with a borderline, you've no idea of the problems and if they'd only be themselves!Any one feeling they relate to these lyrics, please get help, whether you are the borderline or their partner. Too many lives are wrecked by ignorance to this 'illness'."
