Unravel Me....

I know you wish you could understand me
But Iím not meant for you to unravel
Layers upon layers
How badly do you want to know the real me

Centuries
Eternities
Lifetimes have come and gone
And throughout my travels
I never met one man that could unravel me

Pull me close
Just a little
Now thatís too much
Watch me push you away

See this heart of mine
Been through some things
So it knows better than my mind
So it tells me to run away
When you get too close to my heart
Causes less pain that way

But you think you know me
Long to unravel me
Well baby it will take many more lifetimes
Unless youíre my perfect fit

If so
Then strip me layer by layer
Dig deep
Catch the glimpses of that other side
Do you know what makes me smile
Or better yet
What makes me cry

Are you truly determined
To unravel me
Understand the different parts of me
And yet still love me with the same fervor

I choose to give you little glimpses
But itís up to you to truly unravel me
Bask in all that is me
And never leave my side
Are you my ride or die

If so then Iíll promise to come closer
Fix my mouth to answer yes
To the question
I may have avoided for many years

Will I marry you
Sure I will
If you prove to be the one
That stood by me
That unraveled me
That understood me
That loved me
Unconditionally

If not
Then youíre just another suitor
Among many
That swore they would unravel me
Understand me
Love me
But never did
